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 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 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'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 22.214.171.124 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.
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/126.96.36.199-1.2-desktop/build SUBDIRS=/tmp/vbox.0 SRCROOT=/tmp/vbox.0 modules
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.
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.
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.
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?
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've spent some time trying to get my 3G card connection shared over WIFI and despite the number of sites out there I had a lot of problems putting it all together. So I wrote a small guide about it, but due to several issues (time/bandwidth) I can't retest it from scratch.I was wondering if someone could take a look at it and make suggestions or corrections.The idea is to take your 3G data card and turn your WIFI into an access point so you can connect other devices to it for internet access.
For compatibility reasons, a developer do not always need the newest software version that just poped up on the market. In my case, right now, the WebDriver Test our Selenium Test framework doesn't work on Firefox5 that i automatically got thanks the Ubuntu Update manager. I had to search few hours on Internet and finally ask a more experimented college which told me about this solution:
first of all, uninstall firefox5:
sudo aptitude purge firefox
then, you can list the available software versions : sudo apt-cache policy <software_name>
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.
Does anyone knows about some good c++ tutorial ? I don't wanna something for absolute beginners,I need something for advanced topics, tips...Something you liked and helped you a lot I prefer Internet tutorials/e-books but "real" book should be good too.
