    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Just wanted to pass on a huge thanks for this thread.

    I used KernelCheck to save a little bit of time, plus the optimization tips found on the original message.. wow. Definitely notice a nice performance improvement, and I even managed to not trash my system. Compiled and rebooted. Used Envy to build the nVidia drivers and rebooted again. Took a little while in compile time, but it was definitely worth it.

    Thanks

    Talking Re: Master Kernel Thread

    just wanted to say this is a great thread.

    I've been a long time linux user and have often compiled my own kernels when I used slack years ago.

    I could never quite get in right in Ubuntu until I found this thread.

    My new system is now screaming like a banshee!!! !

    This made quite a difference. For those having problems...keep working at it. It's really worth the performance boost IMHO.

    It would be nice if I could get something close to the latest version as well. I have downloaded the linux-restricted-modules-2.6.22 generic package, but obviously it doesn't install.

    how can I rebuild it with my current custom kernel, install, and use it?
    Did you manage to fix this? This is my problem too.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Checking in to say THANKS! I had tried and given up compiling and then this simple tutorial worked on the first try. Changes needed, so I tried kernelcheck (v 1.2, not 2.0?). That's pretty nifty, though I'd like for it to confirm whether to download from kernel.org -- I've hit their 2.6.22.1 stable about 6 times!

    Thanks to this thread, I see the chance to make my Dell D630 laptop actually work using 64bit code. It made life harder on me, but the words kept ringing in my head "why have it and not utilize it?" A kernel compile takes twenty-ish minutes, so something must work well.

    I've been compiling, reviewing dmesg, and slowly removing things I think I don't need or tweaking others.

    Yes, definitely a 5x thread!

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    After I run step 8, I get asked a (very long) series of questions. My impression is that my configuration was not copied properly. Could someone tell me how to copy them properly?

    Thanks.

    Question Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I have succesfully compiled a kernel and I stripped it a bit to make it faster. So far everything works fine. Just a couple of questions:

    1) Is the source folder "/usr/src/linux-2.6.22" still needed after installing the .deb's?

    2) I would like to disable some more options in the kernel to see the effect. But what if I screw up, could I just use the deb's from a previous compile or does the src folder has to be intact (the state it was when I compiled the first deb's)?

    3) I also noticed that the .deb's I created are gone. They are not in the /usr/src/ folder anymore. Any explanation for that? I'm recompiling them right now in case I need them later.

    Thanks
