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.Code:sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.19-pkg1.run -K -k 2.6.23-revision
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.
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.Code:===== making stamp-kernel-image because of ===== This is kernel package version 11.001. echo done > stamp-kernel-image ===== making target kernel_image [new prereqs: stamp-configure stamp-build-kernel stamp-kernel-image]===== This is kernel package version 11.001. for module in ; do \ if test -d $module; then \ (cd $module; \ if ./debian/rules KVERS="220.127.116.11" KSRC="/usr/src/linux" \ KMAINT="Unkown Kernel Package Maintainer" KEMAIL="firstname.lastname@example.org" KPKG_DEST_DIR="/usr/src/linux/.." \ KPKG_MAINTANER="Unknown Kernel Package Maintaner" \ KPKG_EXTRAV_ARG="" \ ARCH="i386" \ KDREV="386" kdist_image; then \ echo "Module $module processed fine"; \ else \ echo "Module $module failed." \ if ["X" != "X"]; then echo "Perhaps $module does not understand --rootcmd?" \ echo "If you see messages that indicate that it is not"; \ echo "in fact being built as root, please file a bog "; \ echo "against $module."; \ fi; echo "Hit return to Continue"; \ read ans; fi; ); else echo "Module $module does not exist"; \ echo "Hit return to Continue?" fi; done
I'm no expert, but that looks like bash or sh scripting.
thnx in advance!
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?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:
Thanks again..Code:[ 48.957340] Kernel panic -- not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unkown-block(0,0)
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.
Also, running it as fakeroot fixed that error, warning whatever.

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?
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.
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!
Okay, so I tried this:
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.Code:sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9639-pkg1.run -K -k 18.104.22.168 -K -k 22.214.171.124
