    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!

    I'm not entirely sure if this may help, but I wrote a guide a while ago under the name linuxnewbie946. Try using these commands after configuring the kernel.

    Now time to build the kernel: Make sure that you are in /usr/src/linux. This will build a debian file that you can install.

    Code:
    fakeroot make-kpkg clean
    Code:
    fakeroot make-kpkg -initrd --revision=386 binary-arch modules_image
    Edit: If the above command(singular) doesn't work, try this:
    Code:
    make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd --revision=386 binary-arch

    Yup. Glad to see people are using it.

    2. Specifically what folder is not automatically created?
    Code:
    /lib/firmware/2.6.23-rc5-custom
    for example, but reason for that is that make-kpkg don't make it itself so KernelCheck don't make it too.
    Of course it's easy to do by
    Code:
    mkdir /lib/firmware/`uname -r`
    cp -r `ls -d /lib/firmware/2.6* | tail -1`/* /lib/firmware/`uname -r`/

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hi,

    I recently followed the fancy steps of this tutorial which was good to follow in my opinion of my semi-noobianship. Quiet frustrating anyway the fact that the fancy recompiled kernel doens't do anything anymore after initializing my PCI RTL8139 network card on my Averatec AV-1050. I can't find any log's either. Anyone with the same problem solved?
    I also wonder how to know in what order the kernel boot's up my hardware? When is he supposed to do what?

    Tnx!

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hi all, I wanted to install kernel 2.6.21 for a software called NCTUns (a network simulator, because it documentation said that it would run only on Fedora 7 kernel). When I followed all the steps given here and did a reboot from the new kernel it said
    Kernel Panic - not syncing: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
    Then I did a mkinitrd and built initrd.img for this kernel and added to grub but now it gives the error like this

    mount:unknown filesystem 'devfs'
    /sbin/init:426:arith:syntax error: '0x'
    kernel paic - not syncing:Attempted to kill init

    NOTE: I have a partition of type LVM.

    So can anyone help me plz. I badly want to run this kernel for the Network Simulator which is used in our college for Networks Lab.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Did you follow all the steps exactly in this guide? I find the most common mistake is forgetting to call "make oldconfig" after copying the current kernel configuration.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I am not sure because I did not use this tutorial, I had used the tutorial that was given as the parent tutorial of this tutorial, after compiling the kernel and when I was searching for solutions for the problem I had I got this link. Can I follow this tutorial again to get the configuration right. In the sense if I follow this tutorial blindly without changing any of the steps can I get the Old Configuration. Or else what tweaking should I do to get the configuration right. I want 2.6.21 badly.

    Thanks for the help

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I followed the steps exactly as mentioned, I did deselect a lot of items in xconfig though.
