    Poll: Re: HowTo: Installing and using KernelCheck

    I've pulled the fixes from trunk and made a new deb package on Mepis, which means it should work for recent Ubuntus and Debian too--you need python-central 0.6.8 or higher, and python2.5 or higher.

    Poll: Re: HowTo: Installing and using KernelCheck

    Yes, that's a known bug with kernel-package for new kernels. You will have to upgrade to the latest upstream Debian or Ubuntu version to build the 2.6.33+ kernels.

    Poll: Re: HowTo: Installing and using KernelCheck

    I don't think ATI had released a driver that would build with the 2.6.32 kernel at that time. When you build a new kernel, you also have to rebuild Nvidia and ATI proprietary drivers. Ordinarily,...

    Thanks for the Ubuntu Guide---once you know what to type in, you can get a new package started building in less than a minute.

    Issues such as this may be due to problems with the CFS scheduler--perhaps trying a Liquorix kernel with the BFS scheduler might help...
  6. Re: Howto: Utilise the svn MPlayer to Improve Karmic Koala's 'mplayer-nogui' Package

    I do a lot of packaging for the Mepislovers community repo, and once you get the hang of it, doing a "proper" deb package is much easier and works better than a checkinstall deb.

    It should also run on Ubuntu.

    You know, you should be able to install the Karmic deb package of the bcmwl-kernel-source, plus bcmwl-modaliases from the Karmic repository. Since it uses dkms, doing that will automatically build...

    Four thousand and ninety-six CPU "farms"--some of these guys have serious hardware!

    1. If you have the wireless driver source, go ahead and patch, build, and install it over the kernel version. Be aware that the drivers are in a constant state of flux, and new or renamed drivers...

    Agreed that learning to compile is valuable! But if possible, I try to build proper .deb packages, so things show up in the APT package managing system, and can be added and removed easily...

    I'm pretty sure these are all one and the same chipset--Atheros is just making things harder for us.

    Nice work... have found an alternate method of creating drivers for the 5007EG, though, and you can share the built module .debs with others that use the same kernel.
