Slackware :: Change The $ARCH Variable To X86_64 Too, Right?

Jun 5, 2011

I'm mainly asking beforehand so I won't have to shoot myself in the head twenty minutes from now. I suppose I'll find/figure out one way or the other anyway . Can I just source the and then run sbopkg -i if the source for the package I want to create isn't 64bit capable? I might need to change the $ARCH variable to x86_64 too, right?

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.

Fedora :: How To Build Kernel Headers Version Arch RPM

Oct 25, 2009

I'm building a Kernel on System A to use on System B. I've followed the walkthrough on [URL], and I get the following rpms:


What I don't get are any
Files. Don't I need them to rebuild modules and drivers on System B? Otherwise, how should I copy my new headers to System B? BTW, System B crashes when I try to build the Kernel on it, that's why I'm building debugger Kernels on System A.

General :: Can't Install Kernel Headers In Arch / Sort It?

Mar 4, 2010

I'm trying to install the "kernel26-headers" package in Arch so I can (try to) compile the Intel 865G graphics drivers from off their website (I can't get H/W acceleration working with xf86-video-intel, but I know the thing has a GPU, because if I boot a Knoppix CD that I have, it enables Compiz by default, and it works damn well).

Any time I try "pacman -S kernel26-headers" I just get a bunch of errors spat back at me code...

Now, I have tried enabling all the US mirrors (HTTP and FTP), and I have even tried a couple of FTP servers in Canada and even Great Britain. None of them seem to work at all!

Is there any way I can get this package?

Software :: VirtualBox Broken After Kernel Update In Arch?

Sep 5, 2010

I use Arch Linux and the kernel got upgraded, and it broke VirtualBox. It says to run "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup", but such a file does not exist. The Arch Wiki says "/etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv setup", but that doesn't exist either. What should I do?

And is it possible to write a script that runs on startup that automatically fixes VirtualBox whenever the kernel is upgraded?

Debian Configuration :: Syscall_table.S File Not Found In Arch/x86/kernel

Jul 31, 2010

I'm learning about the system calls in Linux, but I was not able to find the syscall_table.S file in the linux/arch/x86/ directory. Are the sources installed by default in Lenny ? Or do we've to install them manually.

[12:12 PM:/usr/src/linux/arch/x86/kernel]$ ls
asm-offsets.s  Makefile

These are the only files in the specified directory. I'm using the stock kernel.

General :: Kernel 3.0-ARCH VMWare Modules Wont Build

Aug 4, 2011

Since new kernel 3.0 update I cannot rebuild vmware modules


sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all Unable to initialize kernel module configuration

how to do that. Where do I insert the "CONFIG_LOCALVERSION" line.


Same here. This seems to be due to the kernel version being "3.0" instead of "3.0.0". Recompiling the Kernel (and all modules based on it, e.g. nvidia) with
CONFIG_LOCALVERSION=".0-ARCH" allows me to compile the modules and run VMware.

General :: ARCH & Slackware's Bootup/mounting Process?

Jul 9, 2010

I was wondering if anyone can tell me what file, etc is the equivalent of ARCH's /etc/rc.sysinit? I need to know this because I am having many problems making the new nfluxos iso's for ARCH because of how ARCH now mounts stuff at bootup

due to whatever changed in udev or udisks or something else in ARCH now, when I make the system into a livecd it doublemounts everything when booting for example; output of "mount" in nfluxos with 3.4squashfs udev 151

[root@nfluxos ~]# mount
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
aufs on / type aufs (rw,relatime,si=4ce08f22,nowarn_perm)
none on /proc type proc (rw,relatime)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw,relatime)

General :: Debian Based - Arch Based - What Is The Practical Difference?

Jun 7, 2010

I notice that on DistroWatch, the descriptions include "debian based", "arch based", etc. For the newbie, is there any practical difference between the different bases, or is it a Coke vs Pepsi type question?

Is a distro based on Debian say, easier for a newbie to learn or work with than say one that is FreeBSD based?

Slackware :: When I Used Arch Linux, One Of Favorite Stops At The Forums Was The Community Contributions Section?

Feb 3, 2010

One thing that really bothers me about Slackware is the lack of unified, well maintained, and up-to-date documentation, but what keeps me coming back is the outstanding community. I see a lot of community contributions floating around on these forums, but they often get buried in all the questions and other posts people create. I know there's a search feature, but sometimes it's fun to browse an organized list of the community's work and see if I find anything fun or interesting.

Back when I used Arch Linux, one of my favorite stops at the forums was the Community Contributions section. The FreeBSD forums also have a section for user-contributed HOWTOse should have a section like this. Call it "Contributions" and place it by the "Installation" section at the top of this forum. It would provide a great place for users to check out what the other slackers have come up with without making a thread of their own to ask (which will probably result in many duplicate threads) or digging up an ancient thread.The only new threads allowed there could be a HOWTO, a new process or method a user discovered, or a user-made script/program/etc. Of course, other users should be able to comment with their replies for suggestions and/or improvements.

General :: Arch Does Not See Wlan0 Or Eth0

Aug 12, 2011

On a new Dell Lattitude e6400, I have installed both arch and Ubuntu. Ubuntu recognized wifi and ethernet right away and connected and is working fine, but in arch, I am having more problems then I usually do when using arch. From the output of lspci the ethernet is a intel device 1502, I have researched this and found it to need the e1000e module as its driver. I modprobed this module sucessfully, but no ethernet. With wlan, i have found that the card is a DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card that has a broadcom 4727 chip in it. I downloaded the windows driver for this chip and isntalled it with ndiswrapper but this did not help. What I think is the root of the problem is the error message that restarting networking creates.


Dell only supplies drivers for ubuntu, but it should still be possible to get this to work. I have tried booting various live distros that I had drives for and I found that the parted magic boot disk saw the ethernet port and was able to connect to ethernet, and that the ubuntu live disk was able to connect to both wifi and ethernet. Somehow they must be seeing the prescense of the hardware in a way that I have not tried with arch. Please help, I really need to get this computer workign with arch.

General :: $DISPLAY Not Set Error In ARCH

May 24, 2010

I'm having problems loading compiz-fusion or the settings with my nvidia driver, or driver itself. Basically, I installed Arch (in vmware) then ran: pacman -Syu, pacman -S libgl xorg mesa xf86-video-vesa hal xf86-input-evdev xf86-input-mouse xf86-input-keyboard compiz-fusion alsa alsa-util nvidia I've also added a user. I'm following the wiki guide but I'm not sure where to go from here. here's the error messages:


basically it says that my nvidia driver is incorrect or isn't configured properly. I have an Nvidia 7300gt btw, does anybody know which driver I should be using? [URL] This one should work, I'm not sure what I'm doing incorrectly. it still says $DISPLAY not set when I type startx/ccsm/fusion-icon. And alos when I run pacman -S nvidia, is it downloading version 195.36.24? [URL]

General :: Cannot Use The Arch Repository After Installing

Jan 10, 2010

The first problem is that I cannot use the Arch repository. Every time I try to, it brings up a "no address record" error. I have configured my network interface properly and can ping and receive a whole load of crap. Definitely working.
Whats wrong?

The second problem is that the boot-up process hangs for a very long time at "Starting Network." This make my boot of Arch just as slow as *buntu! WTF? Whats wrong there? Aside from that, I am unhappy that my Ethernet card is not detected but thats another question. The only ting I am pleased with right now is the speed of the system, and the fact that I used 4 different file systems on 7 different partitions without a hitch.

Software :: Very Low RAM Using KDE In Arch System / Make It Up?

Oct 3, 2010

Earlier today I was reading a webpage while installing an application when suddenly my harddrive starting reading/writing like crazy and my screen practically locked up. I went to tty1 and did "top" to see if there was a single application causing some horrible infinite loop or eating too much memory. Nothing stuck out, so I rebooted my machine. While it was rebooting (since it was still being slow), I looked at the "Mem:" line from "top" and saw that even the 4 GB of swap was exceeded by an entire GB. As of writing this, I only have 20MB of available cache, and it occasionally dips as low as 8MB.
I've done some searching online, and I'm seeing people complaining about X using 250MB of the available memory, and mine is far worse (mine is using a little over 1GB of memory). Some were saying that it is caused by KDE effects (mine are disabled). code...

Programming :: Use 32 Bit C Libraries On 64 Arch Sysem?

These are all the lib32 packages I have installed code...
