    I see ck3 and ck7 most often. i am running ck3 right now but i dont mind redoing it if its better. btw, this is SOO much faster than the stock kernel!
    only true answer to that is by looking at the changelog to see what has been fixed because of bug reports.

    From looking at the changelog for 2.6.16.11 kernel, I have decided there isn't enough difference for me to update mine. The bug fixes that they have added to the kernel were mostly specialized fixes for settings that don't affect me. About the only thing in the changelog is a bug fix in regards to ip6v4tables.

    Thank you for atention Efwis, I'v done what you say, but I see a new pop screen:
    The X server is now disabled. Restart GDM when it is configured correctly.

    Re: How To Compile the new 2.6.16 kernel from kernel.org

    Hello!

    Just installed 2.6.16 ck7 here. Seems ok but I do get the following message at boot and if if try to manually start ALSA:

    Code:
     * Setting up ALSA...                                                                          * /etc/init.d/alsa-utils: Warning: 'alsactl restore' failed with error message 'alsactl: set_control:894: warning: name mismatch (Mic Boost/Mic Boost Playback Switch) for control #22
    alsactl: set_control:896: warning: index mismatch (0/0) for control #22
    alsactl: set_control:898: failed to obtain info for control #22 (Broken pipe)'.
    During menuconfig for sound devices I intentionally left OSS unchecked.

    What can solve this?

    TIA.

    Scratch that, now works after reinstalled in synaptic alsa base, utils, et al then rebooted. Not sure if I needed to reinstall, maybe the reboot would have been enough.

    Re: How To Compile the new 2.6.16 kernel from kernel.org

    Running the new kernel, I'm having troubles mounting additonal EXT3 drives. These are my FSTAB entires.

    /dev/hdb1 /media/max250 ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
    /dev/hdd1 /media/max60 ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1

    When I try to manually mount, it tells me /dev/hdb1 is busy or already mounted. However, its not. Also, using Gnome - System->Adminstration->Disks show the drive is not mounted, when I try to Enable, nothing happens.

    Any help would be appreciated. I did run into the initial VMWare issues too, not sure if VMWare messes w/fstb....

    Tx

    Did more digging and found this: http://evms.sourceforge.net/faq.html
    As a quick fix I edited /etc/evms.conf
    Under sysfs_devices polutated the ie "exclude = [hdb* hdd* ]

    Now my drives mount ok.

    At this point I would recommend compiling your own kernel from scratch. It's not as hard as you think and there is a great guide for helping you along the way. The nice part is you can do it all while in the old kernel.

    download the source from http://www.kernel.org get the latest version, not the patch but the actual kernel source.

    Then go to this site and follow the instructions posted there.

    http://www.digitalhermit.com/linux/K...ild-HOWTO.html

    You can skip the part in regards to apply the patch. Replace all instances of 2.6.0 that he uses in the guide to 2.6.16.xx.xx also make sure you download and install initrdtools from synaptic if you want to use the initrd image like like Ubunutu installs, although you don't have to use it.

    if you run into problems feel free to pm me for help, I've done this 4 times in the last two months for different computers.

    Re: How To Compile the new 2.6.16 kernel from kernel.org

    Ive compiled a far amount of kernels so am not a total NEWBIE.
    When I compiled the 2.6.16 kernel my network card isnt working anymore.

    And I believe that because there is no module for:
    Code:
    forcedeth
    Which is the module my nForce2 NIC is using. And I checked the DAPPER's original kernel's CONFIG list and there module 'forcedeth' is specified. But with the new 2.6.16 kernel that module doesnt exist anymore...
    What am I suppose to do?

    have you tried to install it by using modprobe?

    Code:
    modprobe forcedeth
