    Re: Kernel 3.7 and AMD cpu's

    Very similar machine to ventrical above - Athlon II X2 with Nvidia 8400GS video. Running a live USB install latest daily. No issues so far except trying the default boot menu choice said I had a corrupt kernel image. Selecting live session booted and functions fine so I'm pretty sure the kernel image is not corrupt .

    still no joy for me as of todays daily . it dies at the same place as any attempt to boot from the hard disk with any kernel later than 3.5 . Its got to be either my MOBO (gigabyte ) or drive setup ( 2 ide 4 SATA ) .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    Re: Kernel 3.7 and AMD cpu's

    Here is some more info about bisecting
    http://wiki.debian.org/DebianKernel/GitBisect

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install git
    sudo apt-get build-dep linux-meta
    install git and packages kernel building will need.

    Code:
    git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git
    This will load lot of linux sources. If you save it you can update it later with git pull

    Code:
    cd linux-2.6
    2.6 is just a name.

    Code:
    cp /boot/config-3.5 .config
    choose config from working kernel.

    Code:
    git bisect start v3.6-rc1 v3.5
    We want to test what changed between these versions. It will tell how many builds are needed at worst.

    BUILD:

    Code:
    sudo fakeroot make deb-pkg
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i ../linux-image-something
    Build new kernel. and install it. (the new version of course)

    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    reboot

    Go again to linux directory.
    Code:
    git bisect good
    if that was working or
    Code:
    git bisect bad
    if it was bad

    Repeat build until ready.

    Re: Kernel 3.7 and AMD cpu's

    A couple of days ago I went as far as the first bisect , the resultant kernel failed to boot I may try another bisect starting with that one . The problem I think is in the way the newer kernels handle mixed IDE and sata drives . The boot stalls after attaching the first 2 drives , which I think are the IDE drives , its hard to tell since the kernel calls everything SD(x) . I took the dvd of yesterdays daily which would not boot in my test box and it boots fine in my "work" box which is also AMD 64x2 and nvidia so that isnt the problem allso that box has only sata drives .

    I just tried to install today's Daily-Live, but that is only going to be anything at all. The installation runs just the same notifications of new USB devices than before, and then it freezes. If the problem is not USB 3.7 drivers in the kernel so that where a problem might exist? When the 3.5 kernel works without any problems.

    My system is... Asus M2N68-AM PLUS motherboard, AMD Athlon 250 II X 2, 2 x 2 GB Kingston DDR2 and Nvidia 9400 Gt

    Exactly the same situation I have with my USB KVM switch....freezes when it gets there while loading. I am also using an AMD X2 processor. No problems at all with kernel 3.5 nor any previous to that.
