    Re: HOWTO: Kernel Compilation for Newbies

    Quoted material in RED color.

    From page 1 of this HOWTO I read:

    Scroll down the text until you find this section (this is my configuration):

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon 330M/340M/350M (RS200 IGP)"
    Driver "ati"
    BusID "PCI:1:5:0"
    Substitute the word in red with “vesa”, make it look like this:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon 330M/340M/350M (RS200 IGP)"
    Driver "vesa"
    BusID "PCI:1:5:0"


    my xorg.conf (LUCID LYNX) reads:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Default Device"
    Driver "nvidia"
    Option "NoLogo" "True"
    EndSection

    every word in this xorg.conf is NOT in color. Do I have to change the line:

    Driver "nvidia" to "vesa" like yours?

    I know it would be asking a week's work, but could you write an updated HOWTO on this subject?

    Re: HOWTO: Kernel Compilation for Newbies

    main thing is that after installing new kernel (vanilla kernel)* your proprietary drivers will unable to start.. so you just prevent yourself from unstarted X. If you`re useing 10.04 then seems right option to change `nvidia` in your xorg.conf to `nouveau` or to `vesa`.

    As for me, my nvidia-current driver works after rebuilding current kernel version.

    Re: HOWTO: Kernel Compilation for Newbies

    if i were to compile the kernel and apply a patch to it, how should i do it?
    this is the *.txt file of the patch that i've to apply to Linux 2.6.35-rc6
    i've gotten to the no.6 step as in the guide:

    6)After the (long) process type this in the command line (Terminal or Konsole)

    Code:
    cd /usr/src ls
    You'll see a list of the names of the files in the folder as well as the names of your new kernel image and kernel headers; they should look (approximately)like the following:

    kernel-image-2.6.10-custom_10.00.Custom_i386.deb
    kernel-headers-2.6.10-custom_10.00.Custom_i386.deb
    could you please guide me?
    thanks in advance.

    Hey,

    kernel-image-2.6.10-custom_10.00.Custom_i386.deb
    kernel-headers-2.6.10-custom_10.00.Custom_i386.deb

    these files were not build in the /usr/src folder as you suggested they would.
