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.
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/184.108.40.206-1.2-desktop/build SUBDIRS=/tmp/vbox.0 SRCROOT=/tmp/vbox.0 modules
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 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 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.
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 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'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 220.127.116.11 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.
I recently bought scanner, the driver to which is currently in process and is not yet committed into the main repo, so I downloaded the new code and compiled it into /usr/local/ and openSUSE's YaST scanner configurer doesn't see the new versions and continues to work with the old ones.
recompile files into an ISO I bought a DVD of reason 4.0 (windows music program), I wanted to back it up but I didn't make an ISO I copied the files. now I have lost the DVD and I want to install reason back to my windows machine but it needs a DVD in the drive, it wont proceed. how can I recompile the files and make them a recognized ISO so my installation can continue.
At Design House I get LDAP installed and working with PHP5. Not used to rpm'ing - need to add LDAP to PHP5 hosted on SELinux on Network Solutions server and recompile. They installed an openldap but I'm not seeing PHP with it compiled.
im trying to recompile avrdude with a few new patches that will make me able to burn arduino bootloader to my 328p microprocessor. The biggest problem i have is that i need to use termcap but i cant find it in aur or anywhere else at archlinux homepage or my system. I used my google skills but failed, all i found was that it is possible to use ncurses instead of termcap but i tried and it fails and i already use ncurses :S....
I have just installed UBUNTU 10.0.4 (32 bit Generic) on a Compaq CQ50 -AMD Athlon 64 X2 1.9GHZ . The install went flalessly, and everything simply worked out of the box. I also Installed the NVIDIA Propriatery graphics driver, and it worked OK. The box has an NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G. When I did a "free" I discovered that UBUBTU was not using all available RAM. After a bit of research I found that to fix this, I needed to change the kernel to a PAE enabled one. I installed 2.6.32-22-generic-pae #36-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 3 23:14:23.On reboot the system complained bitterly that it could not start X. With log entry:
I) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/extra-modules/nvidia_drv.so (II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation" compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0 Module class: X.Org Video Driver (EE) NVIDIA: Failed to load the NVIDIA
So, I selected to boot with the "generic" driver and all was well. I then issued-- nvidia-xconfig command and rebooted again. Same problem, this time I selected to go to shell and did a reboot, thinking that the driver needed to be recompiled for the new kernel, but I got the same result.I believe I am loading an NVIDIA driver into a PAE kernel which is compiled for the non-PAE kernel.I tried to de-Install/Re-Install the propriatery driver while running under the PAE kernel, but the driver still fails to load.
Currently i am using mapserver 5.0.3 , AGG 2.5-6 on fedora 9. I need some help with mapserver and AGG support. I am trying to use AGG/PNG outformat in the mapfile as well as i added precisely. When i call the link through browser i recieved the following error:
loadOutputFormat(): General error message. OUTPUTFORMAT clause references driver AGG/PNG, but this driver isn't configured. It is clearly evident that from the error, the driver is not configured. since all the mapserver version 5 suppotrs AGG rendering backend, so i checked whether mapserver supports AGG or not.
I found that my mapserver doesn't support AGG means SUPPORTS = AGG is missing in the above output. But i have already installed AGG in my system. In order to clear this issue i gone through many threads in forums, but i was not satisfied with the answers. Atlast i came to know that, i have to recompile the mapserver with AGG. The following link gives you some idea about compiling mapserver with AGG in linux [URL] But the problem now i am facing is i have installed both the mapserver and AGG through YUM INSTALL command so i dont know how to recompile mapserver with AGG support. I think, there will be no configuration file normally when installing through Yum insatll command.
I've been using ubuntu for about two years my inspiron laptop has a problem with the touchpad if fails to regester some of the taps this issue exists only in linux, in all distros while in windows it works perfectly on ubuntu I used to solve the problem by modifying and recompiling the synaptics driver this how I fix it on ubuntu
I need to downgrade curl (newest version has a bug I can't get around) and I'm not exactly sure how. I have removed curl (sudo apt-get remove php-curl), and downloaded and installed (./configure, make, make install) the version I need and everything looks fine for that. However, my phpinfo page doesn't show curl support anymore, so I assume I need to recompile php with curl support. My question is, how do I recompile php with all the current settings it has now? I used apt-get to install it with a bunch of other packages, so I'm not really sure what arguments to use when I recompile it. Is there a way to print the current settings?
Anyone recompiled Empathy on Fedora? I have problem of configure and make as following:
checking for LIBEMPATHY... configure: error: Package requirements ( glib-2.0 >= 2.16.0 gobject-2.0 gio-2.0 >= 2.16.0 gio-unix-2.0 >= 2.16.0 libxml-2.0 telepathy-glib >= 0.7.31 libmissioncontrol >= 4.61 telepathy-farsight farsight2-0.10 gstreamer-0.10 ) were not met: No package 'telepathy-glib' found No package 'libmissioncontrol' found No package 'telepathy-farsight' found No package 'farsight2-0.10' found No package 'gstreamer-0.10' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix. Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBEMPATHY_CFLAGS and LIBEMPATHY_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.
I'm just installed OpenSuse 11.3 (64) on a 30gb SSD, hoping to get virtualbox 4.0 running to virtualize an instance of Windows 7.I went through some pain with my Nvidia video card and actually getting vb to install, but through lots of searching and tinkering got here.I created a vm in the vb control panel, but when I go to start it I get:
Code: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Win7Main. The virtual machine 'Win7Main' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.
I am an experienced Linux admin and have been using SuSE for many years. My development machine has had every version of SuSE since '02 and although it is a little old, is in good working order. (AMD 2400, 2 gig RAM, 160 Gig IDE disks - SuSE on disk 2) (OpenSuSE 11.1 with the latest kernel works perfectly. This install is on a spare HDD prior to doing a full install on my usual HDD.)
When I try to install SuSE 11.2 from DVD, the load kernel operation hangs at 97% (using both normal and safe kernel), however, I can install from live CD without any problem. I have tried the same DVD on a few "older" machines and had the same problem. I initially thought it was the actual DVD but re-burning has the same problem. I have also tried another DVD writer - same problem.
A recent kernel update seems to have misplaced the Kernel Headers. VMWare needs these headers and cannot find them. Attempting to run VMWARE gets the message: Kernel headers for version 18.104.22.168-0.2-desktop were not found.
