I get an error during boot after i've compiled nitro-sources

Hello, i compiled nitro-sources so icould use fbsplash, and now i get an error when i boot (the computer still works fine dough):

error: 'kernel.sysrq' is an unknown key

what does it mean?

BTW i had other unknown keys, but i managed to fix the problems by saying 'Y' in the kernel .config file.

Thanks Advanced!

Re: I get an error during boot after i've compiled nitro-sources

That's actually do to settings in /etc/sysctl.conf

# Disable the magic-sysrq key
kernel.sysrq = 0

All the error means is that you do not have this key on your keyboard (AFAIK).  You can comment out that line to remove the error and it will not affect anything else

On a very similar note, I get an error with net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies during boot. I noticed that it is in /etc/sysctl.conf. Is it okay to remove that as well? Or should I set it to 0 instead of 1?[/code]

Can't be certain - you'll have to post a new thread and ask

Sorry about that. I searched the forums and found this which solved the problem:

Stupid me, I have been seeing this error for a while, but have been too lazy to fix it until I saw this thread. Guess, I got too excited and asked without searching first. :oops:
