    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hi,

    I have two quick questions, I'm sorry if they have been answered before, but I couldn't find anything with the search box.

    1) What is the difference between giving kernel_modules and modules_image to make-kpkg? When should I use which?

    2) I've noticed that a folder in /lib/firmware/ for the new kernel is not created automatically. Is this normal? If so, what should I do to ensure that all firmware loaded in the old kernel is loaded in the new one?

    Thanks in advance,
    -Keyper7

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    It's a very helpful discussion but I have problem of building kernel with custom patches.

    After successful build of kernel 2.6.22-kamikaze9 I faced the problem of restricted and external modules compilation.
    I mean packages:
    linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.22
    and
    linux-restricted-modules-2.6.22

    How to make them to be build and properly packaged for custom kernel?
    Chaos, panic and disorder - my work here is done.

    Thanks! It worked fine. I didn't get the error this time.

    Re: KernelCheck (Program by master_kernel)

    There is a bug in the "Check for Updates" button in KernelCheck 1.0.3 Revision 1. Anybody using any version below this one is advised to upgrade to 1.0.4 immediately.

    There are two ways to fix this bug:
    1. Manually download and install KernelCheck 1.0.4
    2. Edit the KernelCheck file (ONLY WORKS IF KERNELCHECK IS STILL INSTALLED)


    Visit this site to download and install KernelCheck manually.

    Editing the KernelCheck file the easy way:

    1. Open a terminal
    2. Download the patched file
      Code:
      wget http://kcheck.sourceforge.net/pool/patches/kernelcheck
    3. Make it executable
      Code:
      chmod +x kernelcheck
    4. Move the patched file to /usr/bin
      Code:
      sudo mv kernelcheck /usr/bin
    5. You're done!


    Editing the KernelCheck file the hard way (This has not been tested):
    1. Open a terminal
    2. Download the patch
      Code:
      wget http://kcheck.sourceforge.net/pool/patches/patch09082007.patch
    3. Patch the file
      Code:
      sudo patch /usr/bin/kernelcheck -i patch09082007.patch
    4. You're done!


    We apologize for overlooking this error.

    I don't know if this is possible, but you can try going to Ubuntu Package Search and searching for "linux-image" and "linux-modules" etc. under dapper only.

    This may or may not work, keep us posted.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hello! I have my main pc runing ubuntu feisty 64, i want to compile on it the kernel of my old laptop wich is running xubuntu feisty 32. I tried following this exelent guide ( link) and obviosly fail to load the .config with errors. So i read a litle and run:

    Code:
    make menuconfig -ARCH=i386
    and i manage to pass this stage without problems. Once i saved the kernel configuration is when i need a litle help.

    Code:
    fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers
    wont run.
    Code:
    fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --arch i386 --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers
    wont run either.. so i guess i need some special version of kernel libs or perhaps gcc?

    any clues about this? thanks in advance!

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Can kernelcheck be used to install 2.6.23?. I tried it, but I aborted because it seems to download 2.6.22.

    EDIT: never mind. I redid it and realized I have to use the prepatch option to get 2.6.23-rc5.

    I too am interested in both these questions. Does anyone know the answers?

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    How do I add the bcm43xx kernel module into the vanilla kernel?? Do I have to recompile the kernel?

    No. You can, but it will not do anything. You can load this module by entering the following command(s) into the terminal (I just tested this under a fresh Ubuntu Feisty):
    Code:
    sudo modprobe bcm43xx
    And, if you want it loading every time you boot:
    Code:
    echo "bcm43xx" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
    Cheers!
