lsmod no longer works, says: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented.. couldn't find anything in the modules section that looked related.
I can't open up a terminal in x. I forgot to write down the error but it was something like.. no tty available or something.
This is what was selected in the kernel:
Support for consoles on virtual terminal
Unix98 PTY Support
256 Maxium connections available for Unix98
(I didn't try opening a terminal before recompiling so I'm not exactly sure that it's related)
Hey.. the error for the second problem is:
Xterm: Error32, Errno2: No such file or directory
Reason: get_pty: Not enough ptys
Fixed 2nd problem: didn't have devpts in fstab
Still dunno about first one though.. QM_MODULES: Function not implemented
Thanks for any help
Do you have module-init-tools installed?
Those newer kernels need that. It is backwards compatible as long as you install it correctly.
You can get em here http://his.luky.org/ftp/mirrors/linux/k … y/modules/
(get the latest 0.9.12)
Also see my post about this at http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=692&highlight=
I have also encountered the second problem.....what exactly did you add to your fstab?
whoa, i get to help someone!
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
(gid=5 is tty for me, might be different for someone else)
Hey.. I tried installing the module-init-tools and that didn't fix it. I'm in gnome and when I pressed CTRL-ALT-F1 and it said something like, QFILES Not found. Can't get it to say it anymore tho..
n/m.. installed 2.4.21 and the QM_MODULES problem went away..
Thanks, that did the trick.
I'd like to be able to help you with the module problem you were having but the module-initi-tools were my best guess.
