    Both of them!

    well iget things like these from time to time while i compile is it bad?

    Code:
    fs/isofs/namei.c: In function ‘isofs_lookup’:
    fs/isofs/namei.c:162: warning: ‘offset’ may be used uninitialized in this function
    fs/isofs/namei.c:162: warning: ‘block’ may be used uninitialized in this function
    its perfectly normal.

    Yes, install both of them. It would be best to install the kernel_image first and then the kernel_headers second.

    my last question i installed only 1 of them and when i launched the kernel teh xserver crashed so i reconfigured it but now when i try to reinstall the nvidia the next time i start the xserver crashes or sometimes it says its already installed
    then when i do this
    poison@ubuntu:~$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
    cat: /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status: No such file or directory

    as u can see it hasnt found it
    so any help i got nvidia 5600 fx ultra

    oh and can i still install the header while im in teh kernel? or do i have to go back to my old one and install from there?

    U could verify this with the 'make oldconfig' command.

    Well I don't understand, it's still not working for some reason. Now, ACPI_TOSHBIA, which handles the hotkeys, has a dot by it (being loaded as a module), so do I need to do something special perhaps to make the module load with the new kernel?

    Also, I notice this when I run dmesg. On the original Ubuntu kernel, 2.6.15-25-686, (where the hotkeys work) I have the following.
    Code:
    [17179597.040000] toshiba_acpi: Toshiba Laptop ACPI Extras version 0.19a-dev
    [17179597.040000] toshiba_acpi:     HCI method: \_SB_.VALD.GHCI
    [17179597.044000] toshiba_acpi: Toshiba hotkeys are sent as ACPI events
    [17179597.044000] toshiba_acpi: ktoshkeyd will check 2 times per second
    [17179597.044000] toshiba_acpi: Dropped 0 keys from the queue on startup
    But in 2.6.17.1 I only have this
    Code:
    [4294671.487000] toshiba_acpi: Toshiba Laptop ACPI Extras version 0.18
    [4294671.487000] toshiba_acpi:     HCI method: \_SB_.VALD.GHCI
    Also, the version numbers of acpi_toshiba are different. The older kernel has the newer copy.

    I dont know what I messed up but when I booted into the kernel it started in Failsafe. I logged in and when I went to start X it panicked. I booted my old kernel (2.6.12 ancient!) and THAT started in failsafe but X started at least. I uninstalled the package and now everything is back to normal. Think I'll wait till Dapper is released then do a fresh install of that so I have the latest kernel.

    i suggest to everyone that you first try compiling the kernels a few times on a computer thats not your main one OR like i do in a vmwar. now that vmware server is freely available it is really easy to setup a nice test environment. once your comfortable with the process do it on your main system.

    Ubuntu's kernels are heavily patched and I can't help you with that.

    I have backported Edgy's 32bit kernels to Dapper (I haven't uploaded them anywhere yet). The only problem is making the restricted modules. After that problem is solved maybe I can upload everything.

    Kernel 2.6.17 is out. Does this howto apply to this new version as well ? Or could someone please modify it to reflect the changes in the new version ?

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

    I was wondering about that too. My plan is to try and compile 2.6.17 + Con Kolivas' patch-2.6.17-ck1.bz2 although I have no idea what the latter does compared to Ubuntu's "native" patching. Will it be safe to assume, that I can boot a previous kernel in GRUB if something goes completely wrong?
