Dec 21, 2010

I'm currently trying to get my wireless card to work with ndiswrapper after installing backtrack4 today, BUT.When I try and use the make command it tells me that some or another file is missing. I've checked and the output is right, There is no file of that name but there is neither a folder of that name.


root@bt:/usr/src/ndiswrapper-1.56/ndiswrapper-1.56# make
make -C driver
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/ndiswrapper-1.56/ndiswrapper-1.56/driver'

OpenSUSE Install :: Wrong Linux Kernel Version Reported By Uname -a

Jan 6, 2010

I am an openSuSE user for many years. My current installation is openSuSE 11.2. However, my first was SuSE 6.4 and I have been _constantly_ upgrading since then until reaching the current openSuSE 11.2. The technical issue I have been facing lately is with the kernel version of my current system: although it should be, as this is the one I have chosen via the online update mechanism and the yast2 system boot-loader procedure, grub shows it as preselected, the boot procedure in the end greets me mentioning this very kernel version, _but_ when I issue the command: uname -a in a command prompt, I am informed of using linux kernel version: #1 SMP PREEMPT

I am really quite puzzled, since I _cannot_ find any such vmlinuz file under /boot/ ! Could it be that my system properly runs with the expected kernel version, but uname mistakes it with a different one? Is there a way to determine the actual version of the linux kernel that my system currently runs with? If it's a problem with uname, have you got any suggestions that could potentially shed some light towards the origin/cause of the reported issue?

General :: Kernel Panic In 64bit Arch Linux After Kernel Recompile - 2.6.35-rc3

Jun 15, 2010

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.

Kernel Output:


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.

General :: How To Find Out What Options A Library Was Configured With When It Was Installed

Nov 24, 2010

Is there a way to find out with what options a library was configured with when it was installed? I am trying to install a library on my system that depends on gasnet and it requires me to configure it with the very same options that gasnet was configured with. Gasnet was not originally installed by me, so I cannot tell. I can see bin/, include/, lib/ and share/ directories in the gasnet folder and no other information in it. To be specific, I need to use the same CFLAGS that were used during installation of gasnet. For example, if it was installed using '-g -O2', I have to make sure I use the same CFLAGS here.

General :: Compile Linux Kernel For Different Machine?

Feb 10, 2011

I am new to kernel development,and I have to compile a kernel with some specific features and then install it on some machines.The problem is that these machines are slow,and hence I want to compile them on a fast desktop once and then install them on the machines.I am following this guide from Ubuntu wiki.

So what I plan to do is, download the source and generate a config file on one of the slow machines, copy both to the faster machine, generate the image on the faster machine and then install it on all the slow machines. The slow machines are almost identical (same cards, processors, OS etc.) but different from the fast machine(different OS and processor). So will this work or not?

General :: PS2 Mouse Is Not Auto Detecting In Linux Kernel

Jul 26, 2010

I am working on linux kernel building and customising for our requirement.All these days we were using 2.6.9EL5 kernel to create our own Bootable kernel. Lately we moved to as SATA CDROM support was not available during booting with the earlier kernel.Now with the new kernel i have got all the updates i wanted with respect to hardware detection during booting but having an issue with my PS2 mouse not auto detecting while booting. However i can configure the mouse with the popup that comes during booting by selecting the generic PS2 3 button mouse option. With this my mouse works properly. I am wondering is there a way to make the mouse auto detectable.I have attached one of the Xconfig file that is part of our process.

General :: Create Linux-libc-dev Package When Compile Ubuntu Kernel?

May 6, 2011

I've compiled the last stable ubuntu kernel (2.6.38-...) following this guide: How to compile a Ubuntu 10.10 kernel but in this guide doesn't explain how create linux-libc-dev package for that kernel? How do I do?

I've tried with fakeroot debian/rules binary-arch-headers but it returns an, IMHO, absurd error:

mkdir /home/simon/sources/kernel/ubuntu-natty/debian/linux-libc-dev/usr/include/
mkdir: cannot create directory `/home/simon/sources/kernel/ubuntu-natty/debian/linux-libc-dev/usr/include/': File exists
make: *** [install-arch-headers] Error 1

The error is correct but this folder is created in the same process!
