Debian Configuration :: Change The Driver File And Compile Custom Kernel

May 3, 2011

When I only change a driver file manually, for example /newkernel/linux-source-.6.32/drivers/gpu/drm/i915_drv.h, do I need to run "make config" or similar like "make menuconfig" or can I just skip? I mean these steps:

1.) apt-get install linux-source-2.6.32
2.) mkdir ~/newkernel/
3.) cp /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2 ~/newkernel/
4.) cd /newkernel/
5.) tar xjf linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2
6.) cd linux-source-2.6.32
7.) cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) ./.config yes "" | make oldconfig
8.) change the driver file /newkernel/linux-source-2.6.32/drivers/gpu/drm/i915_drv.h manually
8.) make-kpkg clean
9.) make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd --revision=custom.001 kernel_image kernel_headers
10.) dpkg -i *.deb

Is this way OK or do I miss something?

Debian Configuration :: Compile Custom Kernel Without Debugging Symbols

Aug 3, 2010

I've compiled 2.6.35 for my eeepc, but I have noticed that resulting .deb file is 30mb large. After investigating i saw that modules (and maybe kernel) are compiled with debugging symbols enabled.I've checked my lenny router and modules there are without debugging symbols.So stock 2.6.26 from lenny comes without debugging symbols and linux-image .deb file is around 20mb.Stock 2.6.32-5-686 from squeeze comes with debugging symbols enabled - linux-image .deb here is 26mb. (I have used 2.6.32's .config file to build my kernel, then i did make oldconfig.)I guess this is what increase my kernel size, but how to disable it?Or maybe enable stripping of debugging symbols.

Debian Configuration :: Nvidia Kernel Module With Custom Kernel

Jan 24, 2010

I have a problem with my custom kernel when I want to create the Nvidia kernel module.After this finished I installed the image and headers and created the Nvidia kernel module. Everything worked fine.However, if I remove the linux-source from my home directory then I can't create the kernel module.Even though I have the headers for the kernel installed.

Debian Configuration :: Compile The 2.6.36.2 Kernel?

Dec 16, 2010

Trying to compile the 2.6.36.2 kernel. Its not the first kernel I've compiled, but I've run into a problem I've not come accross before.

While compiling I get this error.

[Code]....

Looks like the headers sys/eventfd.h and linux/virtio_rng.h haven't been selected in my .config file. I just copied my old config from the last kernel I built. This was a while ago (2.6.30), but I thought I'd give it a go anyway.

what config option they are under or what I can do to get rid of this error?

Debian Configuration :: Install Custom Kernel Image

Mar 11, 2016

I've a problem running jessie on a XEN supervisor; my running kernel and the installed kernel image differ, because the host system forces the kernel at boot time. Current loaded kernel is

Code:
Select all$ uname -r
3.18.12

But I'm not able to install this version from the standard repository.

Code:
Select all# apt-cache search linux-image
linux-headers-3.16.0-4-amd64 - Header-Dateien für Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64 - Linux 3.16 für 64-Bit-PCs
linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64-dbg - Debugging symbols for Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
linux-image-amd64 - Linux for 64-bit PCs (meta-package)
linux-image-amd64-dbg - Debugging symbols for Linux amd64 configuration (meta-package)
nvidia-kernel-3.16.0-4-amd64 - NVIDIA binary kernel module for Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
linux-image-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64 - Linux 2.6.32 for 64-bit PCs, Xen dom0 support

Now I'm facing issues loading kernel modules for iptables, because the module path does not exist. Is there an easy way to install a proper kernel image from the standard repositories?

Configuration :: Compile Debian Kernel As I686?

Dec 25, 2010

Could someone give a step-by-step tutorial on how to do this, for someone with no more than a basic understanding of navigating the OS?

I'd like to include architecture specific flags instead of the generic i686 ones if possible.

So far, my tests have revealed that Arch Linux runs faster than Debian several media apps. I initially thought this was due to the i686 optimization of Arch, but other mentioned it could simply be a kernel timer issue.

I know for a fact the differences aren't due to bloat, and I've installed both OSes from minimal install means. Only the absolutely needed dependencies have been installed.

Debian Configuration :: Slow Custom Kernel Build Amd64

Aug 17, 2011

I used make-kpkg to build the 3.0.0 source debian wheezy on a dual 3.4GHz Xeon/L1-16k/L2-1mb/800Mhz bus with 4GB PC2-3200 ECC ram and Ultra 320 SCSI, using CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=4 (2 hyperthreading cpus=4 cores). The build was slower than molasses in January! Top reported cpu usage total between 10% and 25%. Why won't the build use the amount of machine it has available. One footnote: I wasn't using swap space. It literally took over an hour to build the deb kernel package.

My notebook from 2003 is at least three times faster building the 3.0.0 debian kernel source. Is it possible that this might cause improvement: make -j4 KDEB_PKGVERSION=version deb-pkg

over

CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=4 make-kpkg --initrd --revision=123x kernel_image?

Could amd64 vs. i386 have some influence? Could the small processor caches on the XEON cpus have an effect. The 64-bit machine absolutely flies doing everything else. I'm miffed! I've used debian since woody, although I am not an expert, but I'm no slouch!

Debian Configuration :: Ethernet Card Missing/Compile Latest Kernel?

Dec 17, 2010

This may sound ridiculous, but after installing Debian 5 (from CD 1) in my laptop, ASUS UL80VT, it fails to detect the Ethernet device. The device is "Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Ethernet Controller". I guess the problem comes with the old kernel of version 5. I was intending to compile the latest kernel anyway. But the problem is is there any heads up i need to download the kernel and trying to compile it? Is there anyone who uses Debian on UL80VT. If there is, does it works okay?In short I want to compile the latest kernel, hoping it will fix the Ethernet device. There are installers available with the latest kernel. But I want to do it on my own.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Driver Support: Built-in Or Loadable?

Jun 26, 2010

Is there a way to programmatically determine whether a particular driver support is built-in rather than a loadable module? I'd be grateful if somebody would share how. I have written a shell script using the RTC (real time clock). I can check whether the rtc-cmos kernel module exists and load the module accordingly as needed, but I don't know how to determine when the driver is built-in. Of course, if the driver is built-in then the module does not exist.

I seem to recall there is a method to query the kernel config file (/proc/config.gz), through which I probably could grep for the CONFIG_RTC_DRV_CMOS parameter. I also can check whether /proc/driver/rtc exists. If that file exists then either the driver is built-in or the module was loaded.I realize the rtc-cmos driver is built-in with the standard Debian kernel build, but I still would like a way to query where the driver is supported.Is there a straightforward or direct method to query the kernel whether a particular driver is built-in?

Debian Configuration :: Install Wireless Driver Not Included With Kernel?

Jun 16, 2011

I'm running Debian wheezy on a Toshiba NB505 and I've noticed that the wireless connectivity can be painfully slow at times. I know it's not our home network because my desktop flies (running Windows).Currently, I have the driver from this guide installed. I went to Realtek's site to download the latest driver for this wireless card (RTL8188CE, the Linux/UNIX version) thinking maybe this more up-to-date driver would operate better than the one used in the guide above.Is there a possible way to install this driver, or should I just stick with the current driver I'm using from the guide above?

Debian Configuration :: NVidia Driver Fails With Built Kernel?

Jul 30, 2011

I've posted here before (viewtopic.php?f=5&t=66322) about problems arising from my attempts to get an nVidia driver to work with my custom kernel. Now those problems are all fixed, and I'm back to where I was: the built kernel boots fine, but the nVidia driver fails.

The custom kernel is as near to the stock one as I can make it, I'm just trying to find a working build process at present, before trying to build a later-version kernel.

I used sgfxi with "-! 40" to build the nVidia driver for my custom kernel; it reported that everything was fine.

With stock kernel - 2.6.32-5-amd64 ...

Extracts from /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
X.Org X Server 1.7.7
Release Date: 2010-05-04
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0

Debian Configuration :: New Kernel And Headers Not Allowing NVidia Driver To Install

May 19, 2010

I've built a new kernel (2.6.34) on our workstation at work. It boots and runs beautifully, but there is one minor problem. I created the kernel as a Debian package along with the kernel headers. Upon installing both and attempting to build the nVidia driver for said kernel, the installer tells me that it cannot determine the version and quits. This happens even if I manually specify the path to the headers. What's going on here, did I miss something during my compilation of the new kernel?

Debian Configuration :: Make A Minor Change To One Of The Drivers In 2.6.38 (-sid) Kernel?

Apr 8, 2011

I need to make a minor change to one of the drivers in my 2.6.38 (-sid) kernel. However, I am wondering how best to go about it. Many of the guides on the internet presume one will be using a vanilla source tree and plan on manual configuration.

I am looking for the easiest means of accomplishing a simple recompilation of what I currently have -- with the same configuration and everything else. On Gentoo I usually just do a zcat /proc/config.gz > .config

However am unsure if this is the, correct, Debian way of doing things.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Build / Make Custom Driver Into Kernel?

Mar 29, 2009

I'm new to linux and recently installed openSUSE 11.1 on my Lenovo Thinkpad SL500. So far it's great... only problem is the hotkeys and brightness control don't work. Digging around online I found this "experimental" driver that purportedly works fine, but I have no idea how to compile, install, or otherwise use it. Here... tetromino's lenovo-sl-laptop at master - GitHub I'm not sure what to do with the makefile and C file provided. For example, what do I do with this instruction...

"To enable the brightness control, load the module with the "control_backlight=1" module parameter (i.e. insmod lenovo-sl-laptop.ko control_backlight=1 )" I know someone on here will be able to explain how to do this in a "computer engineering for chemists" language! I'm comfortable enough working in the terminal with commands, but have found no real straightforward explanation of how to do so (only "programming" experience is MATLAB m file writing).
