I recently installed debian squeeze 32bit on a second partition of my amd athlon 64 X2 dual core machine.Currently it is using linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-686 kernel.But linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-amd64 is available.on the repository.Is it a 64bit kernel or 32bit kernel optimized for amd64 architecture?
<<mod edit: no longer relevant after moving post to new thread>> I'm currently trying to find which web cameras RHEL desktop 5.x supports. Does anybody have a list? (I was searching through hardware.redhat.com, but it is mainly oriented to server and workstation elements)
I have installed the Wubi version of Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell 1537 Studio laptop. Additionally, I have installed the GDK plug ins for .MP3 file support. When the installation completed, there was a message indicating the installation was successful, but it was unable to install one plug in. I am able to play .MP3's, but I can not add them to an audio disk project in Brasero. When I have Brasero do a search for the missing software, it can not find what it needs.
Does anyone have a kernel that supports Atheros network cards? I am using ASUS EEE PC netbooks and none of the kernels I have access to have drivers installed for the NICs. I am having issues when I try to build my own kernel and maybe someone has a precompiled one? Either that or if someone has a basic, step-by-step guide to building your own custom kernel. This is my first time building a kernel and I am kind of lost. This isn't actually for running Ubuntu I will be using it in an imaging program called FOG. I just need a kernel that will support these NICs so I am able to do some imaging.
I compiled my own kernel with tun/tap and bridge support. Both modules load fine at boot time (I could read that in the dmesg output). Now I want to use it, and the /dev/net/tun node is not there, so my application gives that error. I'm trying to bridge openvpn connections. Is it possible that udevd is not doing his work?
PS: I'm on a WD MyBook World Ed NAS device. It's ARM, so I cross compiled the kernel from my debian linux machine. I also installed debian on the NAS.)
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: Entering directory `/usr/src/ndiswrapper-1.56/ndiswrapper-1.56/driver'

With Mandriva 2010 and KDE 4.3.5 it updated to kernel; 184.108.40.206-1mnb and I want to find out if it boots to this new kernel, or the previous one. In the Ubuntu gnome desktop I do know how to find that easy, so what tool or terminal command will display the current running kernel version ?
I am working on tracing the signal handling mechanism in linux kernel internallly. For that, i build the kernel. Now, i want to trace the signal handling mechanism in the old kernel. I got to about SYSLOG and PRINTK for this. But, how to use these tools exactly in tracing the handling of signals internally ?. Is, there any tool similar to backtrace to do that?. How the call flow is done internally ?
First time trying anything like this. I'm running a Abit NF7 with a silicon image 3112 that's support was broken in 2.6.35. I get a kernel panic when VFS can't find the root partition, I can't remember the exact line (can't log it, root isn't mounted yet) but it says something like sata1: link down (sstatus 0 scontrol 0). I think there might be a more telling error message before, but it flies by too fast to see or capture with my camera video recorder.
There's a patch that reverts back to when there was a delay in /drivers/ata/libata-sff.c in the function ata_sff_tf_load, by calling ata_wait_idle(ap) which fixes the issue for some people but not my system. I don't know anything about what I'm doing, but I thought I'd go through and add printk's in each function in sata_sil and see how far the device was initialized. I did this but they all happen early in the boot that flies by. Is there any way to add a pause like the "more" command? [URL]
i want to compile the vanilla kernel 2.6.37-rc3, but i want to obtain a .rpm file. I found this guide long time ago (i used it many times) but it use src.rpm package and the contained kernel.spec file have many lines for adding patches. Someone know where can i download a kernel.spec for vanilla kernel or a guide to obtain an rpm file
I'm trying to figure out whether my system supports PCI Express without opening up the box. lspci doesn't mention "Express" or "PCI-e" anywhere, but dmesg reports that a "PCI Express Hot Plug Controller Driver" is in use.
Is there any IRC client that supports VI keys? The ''obvious'' script VimIRC is and has been broken for so long it's not even funny. Do you know any IRC clients on Linux, GUI or Curses, that provides some of that nice vi usability? Or could some of the existing clients be scripted to use? Irssi, XChat, even ERC would do?
How do i find out the exact kernel parameters (from the grub config file) when the boot loader is corrupt. Seems like a catch 22 that I need the exact boot parameters when I cant get to a prompt to read the grub.conf file to being with.
