    These problems may have been caused because you missed the "make oldconfig" step before compiling the kernel.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I compiled the 2.6.20 kernel on my eMachines T3990, and everything works, except there's no internet connection.

    It only worked on my 2.6.19 kernel.

    Any suggestions? :-/

    No, I followed everthing on the first page of this thread. At the moment, I've switched to my old kernal until I've found a solution.

    It looks like that on some systems with new chipsets the dont boot after an update the prob is "initramfs-tools". Me switched now to "yaird" and this create a bootable initrd on my system.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I compiled the 2.6.20 kernel on a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6000, and for the most part things work great. I finally got the thing to properly suspend and resume. However, the toshiba_acpi module will not load. Looking through the results of dmesg I see
    Code:
    toshiba_acpi: Unknown parameter `hotkeys_over_acpi'
    and attempting to modprobe the module I get
    Code:
    FATAL: Error inserting toshiba_acpi (/lib/modules/2.6.20/kernel/drivers/acpi/toshiba_acpi.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    Does anyone know how to fix this? Is there something I forgot to compile in?
    I found this bug about it on launchpad:
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source....20/+bug/82266

    Edit: I removed the file /etc/modprobe.d/toshiba_acpi.modprobe and this resolved the issue with that module. It seems that the 'hotkeys_over_acpi' option is no longer supported by toshiba_acpi. I believe that this has been incorporated into generic acpi hotkeys.

    I am not sure if this is related, but the laptop hangs when I attempt to reboot. It goes through its usual reboot motions and hangs right when it is supposed to restart.

    Edit: This does not seem to be related. I am still having the reboot hang. I should point out that I did enable CONFIG_X86_REBOOTFIXUPS when I compiled the kernel, but it doesn't help. Any ideas? The computer reboots fine with the generic kernel from the repos, and it worked fine with the 2.6.19 kernel I compiled. The trouble seems to have arisen in the 2.6.20 kernel.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hi all, I come here again with a question:
    What are the config options related to the graphic card compiling?
    Specifically for the nvidia driver what do we need?

    From what I got from the Gentoo wiki. the framebuffer part should be disabled, i.e.
    Device->Graphic support ->Support for frame buffer devices.
    I disabled them all

    I just wonder if other options may involve with the nvidia driver module installed from their official release. Because I'm experiencing some strange problems. And this problem was not here before I compiled the kernel myself. It's in this post on nv forum
    http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=84962
    I just hope someone can help me get this thing, I've been lost here for several weeks.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I decided to give this a shot, it built, compiled .deb'ed and installed

    however, on reboot everything seems to be working, but I my ipw drivers are not there

    so I am trying to compile them, and am getting an ieee80211 error, any thoughts?

    lcohen@lorne-laptop:/tmp/ipw3945-1.2.0$ make
    /bin/sh: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
    /bin/sh: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
    -e
    ERROR: A compatible subsystem was not found in the following path[s]:

    /lib/modules/2.6.20 /lib/modules/2.6.20/build

    You need to install the ieee80211 subsystem from http://ieee80211.sf.net
    and point this build to the location where you installed those sources, eg.:

    % make IEEE80211_INC=/usr/src/ieee80211/

    or use the 'make patch_kernel' within the ieee80211 subsystem to patch your
    kernel sources.

    make: *** [check_inc] Error 1
    lcohen@lorne-laptop:/tmp/ipw3945-1.2.0$

    I did a make and make install on the ieee80211
