    Help?

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I was also having the "Begin: Waiting for root file system..." bug. This was due to the fact that I'm booting from a SATA drive, and none of the SATA drivers were baked into the kernel. I recompiled the kernel with the SATA drivers baked in and it booted fine.

    The next problem I'm having is not being able to mount local hard drives after I'm booted up. I have an IDE drive I use for storage that ubuntu can't see. This used to be solved by patching the kernel with the evms patch shown here (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthre...&page=1&pp=10), but this method no longer works. Any solutions?

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hmm that makes sense, I'm also running from a SATA drive, I'll give it a try.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    what do you mean by "baked in"?

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    By baked in, I meant compiled into the kernel. When you do a sudo make xconfig you need to enable the SATA drivers. They're not selected by default.

    Seems like something is broken (or fragile) when building 2.6.19 on Ubuntu machines. Makes me wish I still had my Fedora Core 6 partition to try building a kernel on.
    There is no problem with building kernels under Ubuntu. The issue here is that config.h no longer exists in the 2.6.19 kernel. Read this thread to get more info...

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Great guide. After a few attempts I managed to get a new 2.6.19 kernel going. Maybe you could add the following info for others who were in my same situation.

    Change
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential bin86 kernel-package libqt3-headers libqt3-mt-dev wget && cd /usr/src
    to
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential bin86 kernel-package libqt3-headers libqt3-mt-dev wget libncurses5 libncurses5-dev && cd /usr/src
    This way if people have just done a server install they can use menuconfig instead of xconfig.

    For people running a server install with console only
    Code:
    sudo cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config && sudo make oldconfig && sudo make menuconfig
    Also can someone point me in the right direction for compiling the nvidia kernel sources as well? I read somewhere that you need to do this because restricted modules aren't allowed when you compile your own kernel.

    Thanks!

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    When I enter
    Code:
    spitz@desktop:/usr/src/linux$ sudo cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config && sudo make oldconfig && sudo make xconfig
    I got this error ( after holding enter for a while) :
    Code:

    I ignored this error & continued compilation... Everything seemed to be go fine, but when restartign & booting the new kernel I got this error:

    /dev/sda1/ does not exist Dropping to shell
    /bin/sh: can't axxes tty Job control turned off

    What did I wrong?

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    What is better for me to use here:
    make-kpkg -initrd --revision=386 kernel_image kernel_headers modules_image

    386, 686 or k7?
    I have amd 3800+ X2 and Edgy 64bit

    This is my second attemp to compile the 2.6.19 kernel and the first time I put k7. In entry of grub don't have 2.6.19.k7 (or 2.6.19-k7, I don't know how it should be), but I have only 2.6.19
    Have to be only this?
