Now the only thing that appears to not be working correctly is that I'm not able to access my windows partition. When I try to access the partition with the command "cd sda1" I receive the following message:
If I try to access it from Konqueror it give me this error message:Code:bash: cd: sda1: Permission denied
"Could not enter folder /media/sda1"
Anyone got ideas how to fix this one?
22.214.171.124 is out - any chance to update instructions with how to for patches?
edit: downloaded the patch, extracted it to /usr/src, cd into linux-2.6.25, patch -p1 <../patch-126.96.36.199, recompiled and installed new kernel, then recompiled nvidia driver kernel module and now on 188.8.131.52...

Nevermind about my problem with not being able to access my windows partition. I installed "NTFS-CONFIG" and after selecting the option to
"Enable write support for internal device", I'm able to access it. Both read and write.
i have a very annoying problem. after i rebuilt a new kernel and then built the nvidia driver, i now have to rebuild it (the nvidia driver) every time after a reboot (i already switched back to the default kernel due to some problems).
i'll attach the log.
Have you blacklisted modules like this :
?If you use Ubuntu, please also ensure that the linux-restricted-modules or linux-restricted-modules-common packages have been uninstalled. Alternatively, you can edit the /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules or /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common configuration file and disable the NVIDIA linux-restricted kernel modules (nvidia, nvidia_legacy) via:
now i did
and it helped, thanks a lot!
Hi thanks for your guide to compile a kernel, I used kernelcheck and was really clear and easy to use.
I'm having some trouble now with my internet connection and switching off my computer.
First, there are no devices detected, I tried the ethernet connection but the device is not detected, and I went to check the linux restricted drivers and got a messge that reads I need to install the linux restricted modules 184.108.40.206, I have a Trendnet wireless pci card, and the driver needed is the Atheros AR5212/AR5213.
Now, if I want to restart or turn off my computer, when I click on the power off icon, the panels disappear and only the the items on the desktop remain. The system doesn't freeze, the thing is that I can only switch off manually.
Any ideas on how to fix this? Should I go back to the old kernel, and if so, how do I do that?
I'm using Ubuntu gutsy-amd64. bye
For the hardware detection problem, I don't have much to suggest other than that you should go over your config options and make sure you clicked yes or module for each of your hardware items.
For the power off problem, next time you want to power off, open a terminal and type
You'll at least get a more verbose run down of what's happening during the shutdown process and perhaps you'll see where it is hanging. Post here the last few lines before the system hangs, and perhaps one of us will know what to do.Code:sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now
thnx, i'm going to try the code you gave me and Il let you know. bye
