    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hi, I upgraded to the 2.6.22.5 Kernal and now when I try to access System - > Admin -> Restricted Drivers Manager I get a message that says I need to load the Linux Restricted Modules for 2.6.22.5, however when I search the package manager the latest version is 2.6.20.5.

    Any ideas where I can get the correct files? TIA

    search GIT for sources and compile it - I'd surrendered and don't use "Restricted Drivers Manager" anymore.

    Thanks. I trying to get Compiz Fusion to work with my ATI X1900 and think I need restricted drivers enabled for it to work. The reason I upgraded the kernel in the first place is because the ATI drivers from ATI.com wouldn´t install correctly (Some bug discussed on the unofficial ATI wiki)

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I followed the instructions in an article on linux.com about a week ago. however, the article did not include the "--initrd" option. thus, my new 2.6.22.4 kernel doesn't have an initrd.img. how do i make one? start over and follow the instructions here?
    thx

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Has anyone else been experiencing much bigger modules than before? Like... on the order of 5-10 times the original size?

    I started getting that around kernel 2.6.21... and it's a big problem... to the extent that the initrd images don't fit in my (small) /boot partition.

    Is this occurring for other people? (Compare the sizes of a few of your .ko files from the different kernel compiles you've done or (assuming they have more-or-less the same number of modules) compare the initrd.img-KERNELVERSION files in /boot. I'd like to know if this is my misconfiguring or something else.

    Do you have any of the debug options on? That could certainly do it. Also, you can always do away with your initial ramdisk, just make sure that you include your root filesystem and disk controller into the kernel and not as modules.
    cheers,

    Did you compile 2.6.22.5 from vanilla sources? If so you'll need to compile your own modules that are included in 'restricted modules'

    No need to start over: check out 'mkinitrd'

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I installed the kernel and everything seems to be working fine. When I choose Ubuntu from the grub menu, I see an error message real quick that says something like this.

    MCFG something something is not reserved.

    Is there anyway to avoid this error? or a way to fix it?
