    Author: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@woody.linux-foundation.org>
    Date: Tue Oct 23 20:50:57 2007 -0700

    Linux 2.6.24-rc1

    The patch is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely
    mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think it's a long way down the
    road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to how big the patch from
    2.6.23 is.

    But it's all good.

    Code:
    sudo sh  NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.19-pkg1.run -K
    You may have to adapt the filename for the installer if you are using a different version of the nvidia drivers.
    So I take it that the -K option will compile just the kernel module without anything else? If that's the case then I'll give the 2.6.23 kernel I compiled another try.

    Yes, that is what the -K option will do. You can also do
    Code:
    sudo sh  NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.19-pkg1.run -K -k 2.6.23-revision
    and compile the nvidia kernel module for the specific kernel 2.6.23-revision (or whatever kernel number) even when that kernel is not the one running.

    Hello, I am using this thread to compile the linux kernel to enable firmware updates for the hostap driver. I ran into the following error with both kernel_headers and kernel_image.

    done
    I am typing this from a Windoze box, the whole point of my compiling the kernel is to enable firmware updates for my wifi card.

    I'm no expert, but that looks like bash or sh scripting.

    Any help?

    thnx in advance!

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Okay, I just found out that it built the .deb files already. wierd.. But I stil have a problem, the kernel is panicking when I boot:
    Code:
    [     48.957340] Kernel panic -- not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unkown-block(0,0)
    Thanks again..
    Do you think it related to my previous problem?

    Also, the Caps Lock light flashes once it has the error. And I am using a laptop.
    Whoops, wrong kernel, that was an old attempt that never worked, I need to remove it; sry for the confusion! The one I just built works like a charm! Well, almost, I need to be able to update my Prism2.5 Firmware. It won't let me. Says PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_WHATEVER is still disabled (sry, we had a power outage, can't remember precisely). But it was uncommented in hostap_config.h and enabled in xconfig. What is up?

    Also, running it as fakeroot fixed that error, warning whatever.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hi, thanx for the awesome instructions! I am newbie in kernel compile and so, and this thread has become huge to read the whole of it. So, I'd like to ask, is there a way to use the ubuntustudio real time kernel on a already configured gutsy system? I have a core 2 duo laptop which in combination with an M-audio audiophile USB audio card I want to use to record music. Rosegarden moans about the system clock being too low, and I don't want to let it be unsatisfied Any suggestions on how to do it?

    Hi theseeker,

    The system clock was way too slow with the original Gutsy Kernel. That got fixed when I compiled a new kernel for Gutsy via the first page on this thread.
    sudo ntpdate ( put your timeserver here ) now gives sub millisecond corrections.

    hi NotRoot

    well i just installed linux-rt along with all the modules which I think does the trick (i actually have the ubuntustudio real time kernel now). Thanx anyway! Keep contributing!

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Okay, so I tried this:
    Code:
    sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9639-pkg1.run -K -k 2.6.23.9 -K -k 2.6.23.9
    And, it told me that there was no nVidia driver installed. Is there any way to work around to that? I don't feel like removing nvidia-glx in favour of the proprietary nVidia installer.
