    Re: HowTo: Installing and using KernelCheck

    Been trying to roll my own 2.6.35.8 on a new Asus laptop for a few days and I'm getting hung up on nVidia drivers. I've tried both the Yes and No options to reinstall the nVidia drivers during the kernel build and I fail each time.

    The most common outcome is I get to a command line login prompt and after I log in, startx fails. The other outcome is, after the Asus splash screen, I simply have a blank screen.

    lspci -v under 2.6.35.22 gives me these specs:

    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0df0 (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 1522
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16
    Memory at d2000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
    Memory at c0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
    Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=32M]
    I/O ports at d000 [size=128]
    [virtual] Expansion ROM at d3000000 [disabled] [size=512K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: nvidia
    Kernel modules: nvidia-current, nouveau, nvidiafb

    Been using KernelCheck with no major issues on my old laptop for a year plus. What am I doing wrong here?

    Re: HowTo: Installing and using KernelCheck

    I know the above post is very old, but I had the same problem but managed to solve it. So, for future reference;
    Most likely you have compiled with the nvidiafb module enabled, which had the same impact on me when I did the same. Compile again, WITHOUT Nvidia Framebuffer (or something), and you'll be good to go.
    Just pumping in my own question here; The instructions on the first page showing how to change the name of the produced kernel does no longer apply. I've checked all three of my python-directories in usrlib, but no-one of them contained the correct file. Is there an equalient that still applies?

    Re: HowTo: Installing and using KernelCheck

    Just did a kernelcheck compile of latest kernel 2.6.38-candela. Didn't see a clean up tick box, and now wanting to cleanup the excess space used, anybody know where the working directory for candela would be?

    UPDATE: forgot about this, its the linux-2.6.38 directory in /usr/src

    Re: HowTo: Installing and using KernelCheck

    I think I borked up my latest kernel. I used KC to download and compile 2.6.38.6 candela and I get an error that says "The package linux-image-2.6-38.6-candela needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it." When I try Synaptic or apt-get or KC to reinstall it gives me this same error. I am on 10.04 AMD64 & have tried several times to reboot. I have used KC once before to fix a freezing problem and the program worked very well. Any help would be appreciated.

    Does this work with Kubuntu? When I launch it fromt he menu, it keeps asking me for the password which it claims is incorrect, but if I launch it from sudo or kdesudo it works but then crashes and exits when I press "Apply".

    I am giving kc a whirl right now and wanted to ask those of you who have done this did you make alot of changes the first time you used it? I didn't make any changes than what came up on the config because I wasn't sure what to "tweak." Lol

    Edit to add everything went great. This will make upgrading kernels so much better. Thanks to the developer of this program

    Has KernelCheck development been abandoned?? It's starting to look that way...

    Would be a shame if it was, I rely on Kernelcheck, especially when the Ubuntu kernels fail.
