    [QUOTE=Sekuhara;3311461
    What I did:
    1. Updated the stock kernel to 2.6.20-16 from 2.6.20-15 that came on the CD., rebooted with no problems
    2. Installed build-essential etc.
    3. installed linux-source-2.6.20 , unpacked it in /usr/src , made a symlink
    4. make-kpgk clean ; make-kpkg --append-to-version=-mychanges --initrd kernel-image modules-image
    5. 3 hours compile time later... resulted in a 24MB-large package in /usr/src
    6. dpkg -i linux....deb
    [/QUOTE]
    point 4 is your problem
    It should be:
    Code:
    4. cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config && make oldconfig && make xconfig (or "make menuconfig" if in text terminal - <ctrl><alt><F1>)
    4.1. make-kpkg clean
    4.2. make-kpkg --append-to-version=-mychanges --initrd kernel-image modules-image

I guess it is where the defaults for the kernel are saved and that .configure is the propper name.
    I was unprepared for any questions that didn't have totally obvious answers as there was no documentation on what to expect during the upgrade and it is something that I have never done before.

    Thanks again for a fine program.
    I will start testing this immediately. For some reason, when I used this program to install kernels, I never ran into this problem.

    Grab 'em from nvidia's site. Instructions are listed on the download page. It's a simple as doing a 'sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.11-pkg1.run', and either having your xorg.conf updated automagically or manually.
    cheers,

    I forgot to write, but I did not forget configuration of course, I copied the config file from /boot to linux/.config , so I had exactly the same configuration as the stock kernel (so I thought)

    I've already found the source of my problem however - it turns out the config file in /boot has CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL set for some reason, so compiled modules are bloated with debug information. Is there some way to get the exact kernel configuration used to compile stock kernels (since on Ubuntu it's not exported via /proc/config.gz ) ?

    OK, I am doing another one right now. The window that pops up is called 'qconf'
    I just saved 'wtf.configure' and then exit. Is it ok to go changing anything here ???

    If your documents could guide a noob through this area it would be great.

    Cheers.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Is it possible to downgrade my kernel in Feisty? I want to use the default kernel that comes in Dapper. Does anyone have any ideas on how this could be done? I am currently having problems getting both my usb capture devices to run on all the newer versions of the kernel that I have tried. There are no problems getting it to run on dapper however.
