I installed the latest security update for squeeze. It entailed an update of the kernel. Now when it boots, it give continuous kernel error messages about "can't enumerate usb .... " I have a custom kernel compiled from source (not sure about the patch level) from the same kernel 2.6.32. It seems to work OK. Should I worry about the security of this custom kernel or should I try to recompile it? I don't really know how to do any patching of the kernel source.
I've Lenny and I've created a customized LIVE USB image with Swiss German keyboard layout using these commands:# lh config -b usb-hdd --bootappend-live "locales=de_CH.UTF-8 keyboard-layouts=ch" --packages-list xfce
# lh_build An binary.img was successfully created, but if I boot from this image, then I still have default US keyboard under xfce.
I just a newbie.i want to try customize my desktop.i found a website shown linux desktop very greatfull, like this :but i don't know how to start it.any expert guys please let me know the guiding for me to start this.
My hardware isn't yet well supported on linux, so I'm looking for a live CD with 3.18 (3.19 came with a bad regression that still isn't fixed; and I need it to be a live CD so I can test before installing).
I noticed that the latest weekly build of stretch comes with 4.2. Can I find one with 3.18 somewhere?
I have recompiled a few kernels, but all on 32bit systems so not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Running Arch Linux 64bit, most recent version.
My first thoughts was that it might be my grub bootloader configuration, so had a big play around with that but it didn't fix it. Also made sure support was built for filesystems. However almost all that Fstab mounts are ext3 anyway, and certainly the root and /boot are. Now thinking it may be a memory error so will run a check when I shutdown.
I've just installed jessie testing which comes with GNOME 3.14. However, GNOME Classic will not let me customize the panels. I've done Alt-RClick, Super-RClick, ... but the menu that adds/removes applets does not come up.
I searched on the internet and notice that the setup gui for changing gnome login screen is no longer available (e.g. gdmsetup does not come up with a theme that can change login screen theme.)What is the right way or where there may contain such information? I google but most of returned are prior 2.30.2, which is the version currently I am using.
I have a asus M51 Se that not work with 4GB of memory ram, due to a bug of bios. Only work with one slot of 2GB. I find this link https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/316079 that help to solve my problem. But for that I have to change a file.
My question is I need to recompile the kernel that I have? if yes, how can i make that without installing other kernel.
I tried to run some virtual machine using Virtual Machine Manager but the guest OS (windows server 2003) was not able to "see" the rest of my network. I believe VMM did some NAT-ing (192.168.122.x subnet) so i'm not able to "see" my network. I tried various network setting in VMM but couldnt get it to pull my network IP (192.168.1.x subnet).So i installed VirtualBox as a work around because i know VB work when i tried it on my windows machine. I ran into some issue getting VB to run, i think it was that i need to compile the kernel to "optimize" it for VB. I am fairly new to linux so that the impression that i get when i research for the fix to get VB working. In some of the forum post people suggest few things and it seem to me like it to compile the kernel. After a few hours of working i finally got it to compile but the computer crashed during compilation.
I am guess what happened is that i was trying to optimize the kernel for VB but the version of kernel i was using (2.6.18-164.6.1.el5xen) is already optimized for xen (VMM) so it crashed. I am looking to restore or recompile the 2.6.18-164.6.1.el5xen kernel. I am not sure if this is the right thing to do to fix it. With my limited knowledge of linux that all i can think of.
I just installed Debian 6.0 (squeeze) on my laptop with the GNOME 2.30 desktop on my Toshiba Satellite A100-VA3 laptop. I have never used GDM3. How do I configure GDM and customize my login screen and wallpaper?
I wish to recompile serial_core module to make a change in the way ioctl works. I don't wish to rebuild the whole kernel package. Can someone point me to the proper method?? I know I will need to download the kernel headers etc. But I would like to avoid the unneeded compiles of things I don't need to recompile.
This has got me stumped. I expected to do /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup after the upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 but the command fails. The log is (it seems to repeat so I only quote the final bits to make it fit into the wordcount limit):
Code: make KBUILD_VERBOSE=1 -C /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-1.2-desktop/build SUBDIRS=/tmp/vbox.0 SRCROOT=/tmp/vbox.0 modules
I am using FC9, I want to write a module that will always show current time after booting.But for that I need not only to load module using insmod/modprobe, but also to compile that module during boot time.How can I perform this 2 steps correctly.
I would like to know how and if is it possible to customize a distro to run live from usb. I need to install some packages that are not default. Is it possibile? I know there is an executable that makes every distro live to usb, it's available on the ubuntu main site.
I've been playing around in attempt to see how small a usable kernel I can build. The theory is that it should mainly be useful for preparing a recovery disk or some such thing; disk drivers and a few network drivers are what goes in.
I built the kernel with the attached config. It boots, reaches the hdd (if I specify root as /dev/sda5 manually), then dies when it tries to start Plymouth (something about catching a SEGV signal). What needs to be enabled to run Plymouth? Alternatively, has anyone managed to remove plymouth from boot on Maverick?
(That would require a modified mountall version, I know.) I'm using the mainstream kernel 18.104.22.168 sources on Maverick (yes, I know Maverick uses 2.6.35; but this does boot).
Hardware: Wireless-RTL8192SE b/g/n, uses an out-of-tree driver (r8192se_pci, from Realtek; Ubuntu builds in an older version of this driver); r8169 works for ethernet; ATI Radeon Mobility 3200 graphics, AMD Neo X2 cpu; SATA hd in AHCI mode.
We have a Dell 1850 with Debian with 2.4.18 kernel running some critical applications, now the issue is we need to upgrade the memory to 8 GB but the memory is detected by the bios itself, Operating system is not able to detect it, it is showing 3096MB of memory,
After a lot of googling and the artical in linux.com/archive/articles/119287 :: Got more than a gig of RAM and 32-bit Linux? Here's how to use it i came to know the solution i.e
1)I need to install the Bigmem-kernel to detect the ram more than 4Gb,
2) or change some kernel parameters in configuration file and rebuild the kernel
Is there any another solution for this to update operating system to detect the more RAM
