    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    What nvidia driver version are u using?
    Actually right now I've succeded in both 8776/9746 in 2.6.20-rc7.
    Maybe you just need some patching for your nvdia driver.
    It's better if you can go to the nvidia linux forum and ask there.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I'm currently using the kernel: 2.6.15-27-686 #1 SMP PREEMPT, and thought I'd give this a go to see if I can speed things up some more, and maybe access something more than the 2.7GB I can see of my 4GB ram at present (using the tempting looking 64GB option in the setup thingy).

    The setup / compilation process seemed to go ok. On reboot I found it was complaining about the 8254 timer not being connected, but adding the noapic seemed to make that go away. But then I get the following errors:

    "could not load modules.dep" first time I tried
    something about pnp end problems? next time I tried (btw - where can I find the boot logs? Sorry, I'm a bit of a linux noob).

    ...and at that point it would just hang. Any suggestions? Even if someone could just point me to a version of the kernel, precompiled, for a pentium d 940 with the 64GB memory option selected then that would be helpful.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Oh, and if you need multiple tries to get it right, is there some way to avoid repeating the whole download+setup+compile+install process? Say by starting at the setup point?

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hi,

    Has anyone tried this tutorial with the 2.6.17-10 kernel??
    Or does anyone know a good guide to compile the 2.6.17-10 kernel from kernel.org?

    thanks

    yes, if you are using the same source as before, you can reconfigure/recompile the kernel without redownloading

    just do these in the directory where the source is (/usr/src/linux):

    Code:
    make xconfig
    make-kpkg clean
    make-kpkg -initrd --revision=386 kernel_image kernel_headers modules_image
    this needs to be done as root if the source is in /usr/src (do sudo -s -H before the above steps) as stated before, you can change the --revision argument to whatever you fancy

    note that the new packages will probably have the same name/revision as the old packages, and should replace them

    If you recompile the kernel a lot, try looking up the ccache program

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hi there,

    I've just compiled the 2.6.20 on my "Dell Optiplex 210L" and everything went fine, apart from 1 or 2 things.

    - My usb drive won't mount automatically in my gnome environment
    - When I boot, between the grub-gdm stage, my screen goes blank (no info on the screen like checking blablabla... starting blablabla...)

    Any ideas ?

    Thankx in advance

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Me found also an way to get my own 2.6.20 booting on my C2D Intel 965 mainboard.

    I added some modules to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules

    ahci
    sd_mod
    scsi_mod
    libata
    ata_generic
    pata_jmicron
    ahci
    ata_piix

    dont know if i need all but thats the moduls the are loaded when i boot an "feisty beta kernel"
    so me added it to the modules list that initramfs know which modules it have to add to the initrd.

    The only prob me now have is that i dont see anythings on the TFT while booting if me disable the splashscreen and add an vga= to grub. (this worked with the old kernel)
