    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I've been using this process for the last few kernel releases because I use tuxonice for hibernation.

    I now have an odd issue that may have always been there. If I boot the generic or 386 kernel, mounting blank CDs and any other CD media works fine. With my custom kernel, I can't mount any blank CDs at all. CDs with content will not auto-mount, I can only manually mount them. Ever seen something like this?

    Technically, you don't mount blank CDs. You only mount file systems. What you're missing is the drive polling that tell applications (like the file manager) that you have inserted something (blank or not) into the drive.

    How can I do if I want to have installed two kernels with different configurations, without overwriting the first kernel when I compile the second one? Are there any way to rename the kernel?
    Thanks in advance!!

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Every guide/instructions that I've encountered for compiling a kernel does not overwrite the existing kernel. You might want to check out

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ht=KernelCheck

    for a very easy way to compile a kernel, written by the Master.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Thank for the help. My kernel version is:

    sa@sa-desktop:~$ uname -a
    Linux sa-desktop 2.6.25 #1 Wed May 14 01:47:25 EDT 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

    so if I strictly follow the steps of this tutorial to compile the last kernel I think I'll overwrite it.
    I don't want to take the risk since I'm experimenting with different configurations, and so I'm not sure if next time my linux will boot.

    Are there any way to change the name of the kernel such as modifiying the .config...?

    I'm sorry -- I think I was wrong in my last post.
    In step 10 I think you want
    Code:
    make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=<unique string> kernel_image kernel_headers modules_image
    See http://newbiedoc.sourceforge.net/tut...el-pkg.html.en

    from step 10 of the guide:
    Then this:

    Code:

    make-kpkg --initrd --revision=386 kernel_image kernel_headers modules_image

    Note: You can replace "386" with anything you want. Like "k7" or "686." The kernel will now compile for 1-3 hours, depending on the speed of your processor. If you have an extremely slow processor, you may have to wait 4 or more hours waiting for the kernel to compile. In the meantime, I would go out to a movie or do something else while it's compiling.
    so just give your different configurations different --revision arguments when you build them. Then they'll be named differently and not overwrite each other.

    According to
    http://newbiedoc.sourceforge.net/tut...el-pkg.html.en

    Using different values of --revision will not prevent conflicts between kernels with the same name.
