Slackware :: Make 3.82 Can't Compile Newest Kernel With Firmware Built-in

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/linux/version.h
CHK include/generated/utsrelease.h


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

Slackware :: Custom Built 2.6.37 Kernel And ACPI

Feb 12, 2011

I have a custom built 2.6.37 kernel where I have most of my devices compiled into the kernel. The only modules are related to nouveau (in case I want to go back to proprietary nvidia) and sound drivers. Everything seems to be running fine. However, in /proc/acpi, I'm missing a number of entries, such as thermal_zone/, dsdt, etc. I do have ac_adapter/, battery/, button/, event, processor/ and wakeup. I've gone through what I think is a very detailed review of my kernel config, and I can't find where I've missed something ACPI related. Here is my kernel config with the ACPI section.

# Power management and ACPI options
# CONFIG_PM_DEBUG is not set

Slackware :: BigDesktop ATI AGP WITHOUT Driver (just Kernel Mod Built In)

Jan 23, 2010

I read over the X11 acceleration in this forum but I'm not having issues with acceleration - running slackware 13 with built in ATI AGP stuff in kernel. Glxgears is putting out what I would expect for a 9600 pro (2500 FPS in the little window). I haven't needed you guys for a very long time but I just formatted Ubuntu (was getting on my nerves) and installed slack 12 on my hp netbook and 13 on my old desktop without a hitch - except this

I NEED BIG DESKTOP! I've searched, I've read, I've wondered! What's the normal setup in xorg.conf for bigdesktop WITHOUT the ATI driver (I ran the driver after building a custom kernel and the installer crashed with "Error: ./ does not support version" - I think I should of renamed my kernel path and setup differently or something)? Is BigDesktop ONLY supported with the driver? I know now that the driver wont work for my system - How do I enable bigdesktop with the open source driver I built in?

Slackware :: DSL Modem Firmware Is Not Loaded After Kernel Upgrade

May 24, 2010

I have a zyxel dsl (usb) moden, which needs a firmware portion to work, called cxacru-fw.bin.

I have been using this modem using with at least two different slackware distributions, even when the atm drivers were not included in the kernel.

Presently I am using slackware 13.0, with the vmlinuz-huge-smp- kernel.

I downlowded the 2.6.34 kernel, because I need it for a new webcam, compiled and installed it, and oops! the modem does not work anymore.

I am pretty sure I have configured the kernel correctly; dmesg tells me the modem is recognized by the kernel, as it is with the previous one, but the firmware is not loaded, because the DSL led remains off.

I attach the kernel configuration lines:

I have tried forcing the kernel to load the firmware, using but it didn't work either.

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??

Ubuntu :: Grub 2 Not Loading Newest Kernel

Mar 20, 2010

I have been running Ubuntu 9.10 ever since it was released, on my HTPC. However, for some reason when a new kernel comes out and I upgrade to it GRUB 2 doesn't load the newest kernel but just loads the old original kernel that came with it when I originally installed 9.10. I have confirmed that the newer kernels are installed by editing the GRUB 2 command line at startup (just a temporary fix) and all worked well with the newer kernels. How can I make GRUB 2 load the newest kernel by default. On my laptop running 9.10 it has loaded the newest kernel by default ever since I installed it but my HTPC just won't cooperate.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Won't Boot With Newest Kernel?

Nov 18, 2010

I had done the upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 online and couldn't boot to newest kernel and had to select the previous one in GRUB. From what I have read it may be because of NVIDIA drivers or some conflict. Anyways,I did a fresh install of 10.10 from the Live CD overriding my 10.04-to-10.10-online-updated partition so I do not have an option to boot older Linux kernels now. I was wondering if the Live CD could be used to install any previous linux kernels for the new installed Ubuntu 10.10 system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Newest Kernel Cannot Detect Disks

Aug 8, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, and the latest kernel upgrade (xxxx.22) won't start the system because it can't find the hard disks. It ends up with a prompt from (initramfs).The computer has an MSI board with Intel P4 Dual CPU, and a Phoenix Award BIOS marked W7037 IMS V1.2, dated 091604 (Sep16/04). I doubt that a newer BIOS that will fix the problem, but if anyone knows I could try to find a floppy drive and a diskette, because they require that to install the newer BIOS (ver 1.3). Does any one have a better method? Is it still possible to get the previous kernel version until they fix this bug (if they ever will)?

Is there a way to change the boot sequence in GRUB2 so the original kernel would be the default even if the rest of the software has been updated? Since 10.04 has several bugs and annoyances, may be it's time to change to another distribution (I've tried Mint 9, but it has much of the same, like having to enter the password if I take a short break from the computer). Many questions at once, but less and less things are functioning with each new revision. For instance to use the scanner I must go back to 8.04, or use WINDOWS! (The scanner is the only reason why I have Windows on the computer).

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot Into Newest Kernel After Upgrades

May 14, 2011

this is a new problem with issues that started when I upgraded to 10.10. Originally, GRUB wouldn't load after that upgrade, but that was fixed here. Once GRUB was working properly, there was a problem with the 2.6.35-28 generic kernel. When I tried to boot through it, I would only get an ubuntu command line.

Luckily the older 2.6.32-22 generic kernel worked just fine and I could log in and load my ubuntu desktop with no issues. I decided to upgrade to 11.04 to see if that would correct whatever was going on. The installation was completed without any apparent issues, GRUB works, XP Pro works, and the older 2.6.32-22 generic kernel allows me to boot into 11.04.

Unfortunately, another new kernel, 2.6.38-8 generic, is not working properly. I snaped some pictures of what happens when I try to use this kernel:


The first is GRUB/ The selection The second is the loading graphic The third is a command line where it freezes (note: this is not the same command line screen/environment that I was referring to with the 10.10 new kernel)

Software :: Slackware 12.2 - And The Newest Firefox?

Jan 14, 2011

I would like to upgrade to the newest firefox. It is 3.6.somewhat. My official Slackware (12.2 - upgrade supported the latest version , which was 3.0.19. Via GUI i could update this, and i did it.

So, now , I installed a new kernel (2.6.35-stable, and modules ). I saw, that I can download the firefox paket from their page, and I did this already some months ago, whith the experience, that this package is some kind of portable executable, means, just unpack it, and run it. It seems, as i do not need to install it ( what interferes in some kind with plugin directories , flashplayer for example. )

But, I would like to build it again, using their old config as mine ( via make oldconfig) and then converting it all to an tgz. My question now is : will this work ? because, I updated my kernel, and went to 2.6.35 but not my glibc, my kernelheaders nor my gcc. Will I still be able to compile this new ff from source and .tgz it ?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Newest Real Time Kernel To Show Up In Grub 2 (Karmic)?

Apr 26, 2010

I want to try out the realtime kernel to get my audio latency down. I have installed the realtime kernel packages according to the Ubuntu Studio preparation documentation here - I have also run sudo update-grubHowever, when I boot up, the realtime kernel option does not show up in grub2. The current kernel I am using is 2.6.31-17, but the only options in grub for it are -386 and -generic.

There is a previous entry of 2.6.31-9-rt which I had attempted to use previously (sometime last year) but if I select it, it doesn't even boot at all.I checked my /boot directory and there is no vmlinuz-2.6.31-17-rt file .... Which I am assuming is why it doesn't show up or add when I run update-grub ... But I am currently at a loss for how to actually get the 2.6.31-17 realtime kernel file and add it to grub2.

Software :: Installing The Newest Valgrind From Source Using Slackware?

Jun 23, 2010

I downloaded the source for the latest valgrind and ran ./configure. It quits saying:


checking the GLIBC_VERSION version... unsupported version
configure: error: Valgrind requires glibc version 2.2 - 2.10

I've seen a slackbuild package for it. I'd like to have valgrind installed, but I'd prefer installing from source. Are unofficial packages the only way to go for the newest or newer release? EDIT: I meant to ask also, very important, what problems could arise from installing a slightly older version? I don't need a long, complex answer. Just off the top of your head, if it would be real stupid to do, let me know. I can google some time.

Ubuntu :: Any Option To Built Solution To Make Backup

Apr 20, 2011

As I checked some online backup solutions I have found information that all of this which I checked have only clients for Win or Mac. But I'm looking for solution with Linux client.As I have read some info on one of the Googled page Linux probably is ready for being an online backup solution as is.So my idea is to create automatic (in the background) backup of my files (photos and docs) with my outside hosting server. I have unlimited shared hosting server with ftp access. Is there any option to built such solution to make backup synchronisation between my Linux comp and shared hosting? What should I get to know to start with such option?
