    Re: HowTo: Installing and using KernelCheck

    Just one suggestion, why dont you use "wget -c" instead of plain "wget" inside your script? That way we wont have to re-download the entire kernel source again if we just need to apply a new patch!

    This has been implemented into the current HYDRA. Thanks for this suggestion!

    So whats the easiest way of getting a working nvidia install atm???

    Thanks! Im also assuming you have removed the "rm -rf" line to remove the downloaded kernel source? Cause otherwise the "wget -c" doesnt make any sense

    Why doesn't it make sense? "wget -c" continues downloading the source, but if it is already downloaded, it continues with the script. See below.

    Code:
    me@my-desktop:/usr/src$ wget -c http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...2.6.23.tar.bz2
    --14:48:11--  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...2.6.23.tar.bz2
               => `linux-2.6.23.tar.bz2'

    Am I missing something?

    Like funpop suggested above, try using Envy.

    EDIT (below):

    BUGFIX: I have updated and hopefully fixed the nVidia driver problem. It will use the nvidia-glx packages in the repos. Also, the bug that caused the kernel not to build unless you recheck the option is now fixed. Thank you for your feedback.

    Envy did the job first time - cheers for the tip.

    Shall give the new KC a try when the next updates out...

    Re: HowTo: Installing and using KernelCheck

    I got this error:
    Code:
    E: Opening configuration file libncurses5 - ifstream::ifstream (2 No such file or directory)
    Error [500]: apt-get returned exit status 1. Aborting now.
    Edit 1:
    I found the error. Lines 215 and 573 are apt-get commands that call to install "wget -c" instead of "wget".

    Edit 2:
    Now I'm getting this error after it does its apt-get stuff:
    Code:
    Please type your password [if asked] to continue:
    Performance (normal) patch selected.
    E: Broken packages
    This happens if I select the nvidia option.

    Edit 3:
    I don't get this error after reselecting the nvidia option and running the scripts again.

    What do you mean by reselecting the nvidia option?
