    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?
    Well I have an AMD Athlon64 3000. I used 686 which is better than 386 (not sure where K7 comes into it). However I'm only using 32bit mode- not sure if you need to do something else to use 64bit

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hello all,

    The k7 is optimised for AMD 32-bit, will work for 64-bit as well. I use a 32-bit kernel and environment for my Dual-Core Opteron and it flies.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Thank you for your answers. But, my question is which is better kernel to use for my systems with 64bit Edgy? 686, k7 or something else?
    Why when I want to install nvidia beta on 2.6.19 install 2.6.17 kernel.
    And last question: why can't I find in Synaptic kernel 2.6.19 for nvidia?
    Thank you and sorry for my bad english.

    K7 is the best for you to use (as you've got a 64bit AMD CPU).

    I couldn't find a kernel either - however I just downloaded the latest drivers from nvidia.com and it compiled the kernel modules for me.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Thank you for the answer. I reinstall Edgy, but now 32bit version, because with 64bit I have some problems (I haven't expirience in Linux, only two months). Then I compiled 2.6.19 with 686 and nvidia 9631 and all they seem fine. If I have any problem I'll write here.
    Thank you
    Andreas


    Something else I want to say is: when I install nvidia drivers for 2.6.19 it's ok, but when I'm selecting in grub menu 2.6.17.10-generic I hadn't graphic enviroment. Then if I install nvidia drivers for 2.6.17.10-generic I hadn't graphical enviroment in 2.6.19 kernel. Is this normal?

    Something else: I have 1gb RAM memory. With kernel 2.6.17.10-generic in system monitor (I don't know exactly how is this entry in english language because I have greek, there where it has graphic bars with memory, cpus and bandwidth) it shows 1010mb memory. With the kernel 2.6.19 it shows 883 mb ram memory. Why is there this difference? This difference means that it has available 884 mb or is something virtual. This has impact in my system or not.
    And then, after all this, it's better to use 2.6.17 or 2.6.19 kernel?

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I ran into a problem, as my /home is on a different disk when i booted with the kernel it could not find it, how do i tell it where it is so GDM(maybe) knows where it is?

    not sure what files to include, just let me know.

    Note to everyone: The revision has absolutely nothing to do with the kernel at all. It is simply just a short title for your kernel. 64 bit users can even put --revision=64 or don't even include the revision at all.

    New kernel - 2.6.19.1 - updated howto with your suggestions - redid troubleshooting because of obsolete q&a.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Can I suggest you add something about compiling ndiswrapper from source if they are using it? The one in the repos doesn't work with custom kernels.

    1. Finish compiling the kernel
    2. Reboot, selecting the new kernel in GRUB
    3. YOU WILL HAVE NO INTERNET!
    4. Go to the ndiswrapper website.
    5. Download the latest version of ndiswrapper
    6. Extract it
    7. Open a terminal
    8. navigate to the folder containing ndiswrapper
    9. type make
    10. type sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    11. type make install
    12. type sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    13. connect to the internet

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Is it possible to compile the kernel on a faster machine and move the deb file to another to install?
