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.
So I am new to linux and i upgraded my kernel to 4.3.3 and to add the bfq patch. When i enter the command make install I get the following Code:
Select allupdate-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.3.3 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8107e-2.fw for module r8169 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8107e-1.fw for module r8169 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168h-2.fw for module r8169 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168h-1.fw for module r8169
Trying to compile the 220.127.116.11 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.
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?
i install devian squeeze with the netinstall iso, all work fine except for the auto-detect of my ethernet card.i have a mother asrock p4i45gv with an onboard ethernet card realtek rtl8139/810x family fast ethernet NIC.i try everithing, the ifconfig shows only lo, but ifconfig -a shows a eth0 any ideas?
I am using the Debian stock kernel. I want a minimal kernel that works on my Pentium 4, 1GB DDR RAM machine. What do I have do to get a less resource hungry OS. Is there already a minimal kernel binary available?
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.
Got this while installing the kernel development tools on my Squeeze system being used as a router/firewall. Setting up update-inetd (4.36) ... Setting up cvs (1:1.12.13-12) ...

Is that an issue that I need to address prior to building the latest kernel (18.104.22.168)?
For quite a long time now, I haven't even needed to re-install video drivers most of the time. However, ever since version 2.6.36-0.dmz.4, they haven't been. I booted my system after installing that kernel, re-installed the video drivers, and when that didn't work, completely removed them and re-installed them, and it still didn't work. Well, I was told that the installation was successful but even after restarting it appeared that they weren't working. I installed 2.6.36-0.dmz.5 today and the same problem persists. I tried an older kernel version (2.6.36-4 something) and they worked fine.
I would like to compile a custom xen dom0 kernel. I installed a Debian Squeeze with precompiled xen kernel, and it works fine, but i would like to compile a custom dom0 kernel from source. I tried install kernel source apt-get source linux-2.6 how can I patch this kernel source with xen? but i alway see only the domU kernel params.
I just updated my Squeeze install now the current kernel version is now 3.0.0-1-686-pae. I now no longer have any internet connection.I have tried the failsafe boots with no luck. I have tried the 2.6 kernels and have had no luck.I have tried to manually start the connections with no luck.I have booted off of a Squeeze Live CD and the connection works just fine.
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.
I upgraded testing today on my intel laptop. During the upgrade I got the message that the new kernel would require additional firmware, see attached. Is the solution for this to install the driver from Realtek? [URL] If so, the instructions said to check if the driver was already installed, but what does the output below mean?
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:
Anyone know what happened here or what I need to do? I'm running Fedora 12 and had the nvidia video driver setup and working perfectly from rpmfusion repo ... I just did a yum update and now my display is stuck on 800X600 ....
I'm running Hardy 8.04 LTS 64bit. The Update Manager updated the kernel and then asked if I wanted to use the local version of the grub menu. The boot menu was getting so long I edited it to shorten it. Other options were also offered, like the builder's version, but I chose the local version and since then the new kernel doesn't show up in the boot menu. Sudo update-grub doesn't restore it to the menu.
How do I undo the local version of the boot menu so I can see the newest kernel?
I have a strange problem. An old PC is my home server. On the PC I had in the long past 2 NICs. For the last year or so, I had only one NIC installed, a Compex with 8139too module which run just fine. After the upgrade to 11.4, 32bit of course, with zypper dup, I saw that I had no internet and no network connection to the server. So, I logged on the server and found that rcnetwork could not start the eth0 and eth3(!). OK, a mistake I thought. Enter Yast and solve it. Unfortunately, yast reports 2 cards! I removed all of them, rebooted but nothing. lspci reports 2 cards, while I have NONE installed on the motherboard!hwinfo --netcard the same! yast the same! So, the OS "knows" that I have 2 NICs, while I definitely have none!
Checked if /etc/udev/rules.d/70- had any left data from the past, but the file was empty. Checked the /etc/sysconfig/network/scripts nothing again.In principle, the openSUSE 11.4 believes that I have 2 cards (and with wrong MACs, obviously) and I cannot make it rescan the PCI bus to find that I have nothing! I am sure that some garbages are left somewhere but I don't know where to look at. it is very critical to have that server but on-line and in my LAN.
opensuse v11.2linux 22.214.171.124-0.1-desktop x86_64The kernel symbol file is still at 126.96.36.199. Apparently the symbol file did not get updated with the rest of the kernel development files. At least one program does not build because of that
The problem here is that in my ubuntu desktop pc, the repositories contain the latest rdiff (1.2.8), but in my debian server, the repositories contain v1.2.5. I get an error that the versions are different, therefore I need to compile v1.2.8 in debian myself and I have really no idea how to do that.

I have gone through all the kernel config options repeatedly, but everytime I get the same error after running my configured kernel.
To begin with, after unpacking the kernel I get Undefined video mode numer: 305 and then a selection of video modes appears.
Why are the standard settings in my lilo 1024x768x256 (vga 773) not accepted?
VFS: Cannot open root device "808" or unknown block(8,8) Please append a correct "root"=" boot option; here are the available partitions: Kernel panic- not syncing :VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block(8,8)
My partitions are ext2, and this format (as well as other formats) are compiled in the kernel.
I am using Opensuse 11.2 on an HP Pavilion laptop. The internal wireless (Broadcom device) quit on me - It is no longer detected at boot so I assume it is dead. No problem since I have a D_Link USB adaptor (DWL-G132). To get it working however I need ndiswrapper. I then installed ndiswrapper 1.55 and the user interface supplied with Opensuse. Problem1- The interface says "The program 'kernel-headers' is missing on your system".
I have checked with Yast and the kernel-headers are installed. Problem2- I have downloaded ndiswrapper 1.55 from Sourceforge.net to attempt the traditional installation method. The 'make' command returns the following message: "Cannot find kernel version in /lib/modules/188.8.131.52-0.1-desktop/build, is it configured?."
Since an Aptitude upgrade to my Debian Squeeze operating system (using video driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.24) some weeks ago, which installed linux kernel 2.6-32-5-686, grub has been giving me two boot options (in addition to MS Windows). I expect that this is quite normal so far ...
However, if I try to boot using this new kernel, rather than kernel 2.6-32-3-686, I can only get the command line interface. Everything seems to work after boot with the new kernel, except (although the system seems to load kdm successfully) I cannot start X. Booting with the old kernel still takes me to the desktop as normal (I've set KDE to automatically bypass kdm, as I'm the only user of this standalone PC), and because of this I've been slow to address the issue with kernel 2.6-32-5-686, but since the problem doesn't seem to be going away with more recent upgrades, I suppose a request to the forum is the only way to go:
So, is the problem I'm having the same as was addressed in this thread? If not, would I only need to reinstall the same NVIDIA video driver so that it recognises the new kernel? If not, would installing NVIDIA-Linux-x86-256.35 solve the problem, and would I have to deinstall the old video driver first? Finally, if and when I solve the problem, can I safely deinstall the old 2.6-32-3-68 kernel?
I've been trying to install the latest NVIDIA driver for my 7800GS card. dl the driver from NVIDIA. ctrl+alt+F1. stop gdm3, after I hit agree I get an error. The CC version check failed: The compiler used to compile the kernel (gcc4.3) dows not match the current compiler (gcc4.4). The Linux 2.6 kernel module loader rejects kernel module built with a..
I am installing Linux for the first time right now and I am facing a bit of an issue when it comes to network hardware driver installation. The NIC on my motherboard is a Marvel 88E1111 (computer is very old). During the installation of Debian, I got to a menu which read "No Ethernet card detected. If you know the name of the driver needed by your Ethernet card you can select it from the list", then provides me with said list of driver names.
However, the only driver I could find that came close the NIC I am using was one called just "Marvel", and selecting actually didn't do anything (screen flashes blue and returns me to the same menu). So I continued by selecting the "none of the above" option, and now the new menu reads: "A driver for your hardware is not available. You may need to load drivers from removable media (...)". So I thought I should google for the drivers and see what I can find. The official site of the company that made my NIC doesn't even list my model in their drivers' list (to be expected since it is so old).
Then I found this: URL.., but I was expecting more of a download than the source code itself.
I'v just brought a notebook computer with a CPU i7 2630QM. I install debian 184.108.40.206 via CD driver, but it failed to success. The probles are three, (1).it reported "cannot find ethernet card" ; (2). It reported "cannot install continue" after the diskpartion step have been successed; (3). It said "netinstall may be a choice", so I say "Yes" and It really downloading something (543 files) and successed . After reboot, I loggin and cannot link to the internet. There is no such files ralated to netware config and I'm not able to config that, for I'm always only a bar finder in an meau.(shy a little,but this is ture). I do it 4 times and the situation and results are the same that I got a smallest netinstalled debian system on my computer and I cannot play music, cannot link to internet. I wonder: How could I install a real debian on my computer? Need I download anther version of iso file or do something that I do not know to makes it works. I can burn an iso image to a real CD by my old computer. I can also install OS such as mint via USB flash drive. In the computer Highly-Orangized world (already-wisdomed world), I have a body already but I've never been installed a sprit or a soul. So I really need to learn from you, from the great debian bbs, learn something of vital importance to take me into wise and freedom.
