Slackware :: Compile 2.6.37 Kernel Patched With The Autogroup Patch On A Slackware 13.1 System?

Jan 13, 2011

it's possible to compile the 2.6.37 kernel patched with the autogroup patch on a Slackware 13.1 system running with headers? I just compiled and installed the 2.6.37-autogroup kernel from AUR on my ARCH setup and I like it especially when using firefox with lots of tabs open and other background apps also running. I did notice a speed and smothness difference in my ARCH testing setup with this kernel patch and I can get same results in 13.1??

Slackware :: Performance Tweak /Kernel Patch Running Anyone?

Nov 19, 2010

[URL]... Anyone got this going on slackware? I've a single cpu and twincore here and the videos of the original patch were impressive. I tried it and I don't have /sys/fs/cgroup anything. So I added the cgroup scheduler in 2.6.35, but no dice. Do I have to go to git or 2.6.37??

Jul 30, 2010

after upgrading to make 3.82, I can not compile the newest kernel: 2.6.35-rc6-git5´╝îit failed with:

GEN /home/aaa/tools/kernel/output/35/Makefile

CHK include/generated/utsrelease.h


Maybe 3.82 has some backward-incompatibility that breaks kernel compilation.

Slackware :: Custom Kernel, Now System Is Unbootable?

Jun 26, 2011

I compiled my own custom kernel for the first time. I tinkered with different options, nothing to difficult. I actually didn't expect it to work the first time.

I had kept the original lilo boot config just in case something was to go wrong. Now when I try to boot the system, I always get a "VFS: cannot mount root system on (8,3)". I googled this and found that my kernel did not support my root filesystem (btrfs). So I made an initrd with btrfs kernel module, but it didn't help. I then got a string of errors about how /dev could not be mounted.

My question is two-fold. First, how come when I configure the system back to when it was first installed, it still won't boot? Im using the same kernel ( Second, how can I get myself out of this rut without reinstalling?


append=" vt.default_utf8=0"
vga = normal
# Linux - Slackware
image = /boot/vmlinuz-huge-smp-
root = /dev/sda3
label = Linux

BTW, I have been maintenancing the system by chrooting into the device off of my slackware boot disk. Im on slack 13.37

Slackware :: Mousepad Patch Available For Find Button?

May 19, 2010

Mousepad in xfce seems to have a problem when compiled with the latest libraries. In Slackware Current (13.1 RC1?) the "Find" button stays disabled the SECOND time you try to do a "find". Because of this, you can only do one "find" without closing Mousepad and opening it again.I found a bug report for this problem in a forumr a different distribution:[URL]I have applied this patch to the current xfce source code on my local machine and it seemed to solve the problem.It would be nice if this patch could make its way into the 13.1 release.

Slackware :: Recent Openssl Patch Broke Encfs?

Mar 8, 2010

I started up my machine this morning and entered my password to encfs as I do each day and was greeted with a message telling me my password was incorrect. I tried several times, checked caps lock but no joy.

The message (which I didn't copy and paste unfortunately) mentioned ssl and I remembered that openssl was one of the security patches I applied at the weekend. So I removepkg'd the two openssl packages (v0.9.8m) and then installpkg'd the original ones that came with slackware 13.0 (v0.9.8k).

Server :: Mounting Ext3 File System As Ext2 On Slackware With Custom Build Kernel?

May 16, 2010

I just rebuild the kernel for slackware 13, everything works, but root file system which is ext3 is mounted as ext2. Normally I've build ext3, ext4 and so on as modules, not in the kernel... but if I do this, then the kernel mounts the file system as ext2, which is build in the kernel. I also modified rc.modules so I can make sure that ext3,ext4,jbd are loaded, but it doesnt work.
