ArchCK & new Udev

I am aware of the issues with the new udev and ArchCK regarding CD/DVD drives, and am currently preparing a package which ought to rectify these.

ArchCK4 ought to be uploaded by the end of the night, and should hit your mirrors whenever they sync.

Re: ArchCK & new Udev

New package uploaded, changes:

Enabled ipw2200 monitor mode, sorry it took so long smile
Fixed udev stuff.

Also reccomended, but not required is the updated mkinitramfs package. It doesnt add anything new, except being cleaner, removes some of those harmless errors on boot and removes some more references to initrd.

Make sure you are running kernel26archck4 and mkinitramfs 1.2.

Please ensure that when you create a mkinitramfs, that a new initramfs is created, and the the path in your bootloader is to the correct one.

If you are running a self compiled kernel, please use the patches made available here:

Re: ArchCK & new Udev

I'm having an issue with 2.6.15.archck4-1 (well all archck versions since it started using initramfs) where it does not recognise my DVD burner.

Linux archie 2.6.15-archck

dmesg shows:

ata1: dev 0 cfg 49:2b00 82:346b 83:5b29 84:6003 85:3469 86:9a09 87:6003 88:203f

and lsmod shows:

Now if I reboot into the standard kernel or kernel26ck 2.6.15.ck3-3 it detects my DVD burner fine.

Re: ArchCK & new Udev

Update to latest mkinitramfs, and rebuild your initramfs image. Ensure that the new initramfs is built by removing any old ones, and the correct one is referenced in your bootloader.

edit: Dibble, sorry, I forgot entirely about them! I'll find the patch and upload another update.

Re: ArchCK & new Udev

Hi Iph thanks for your help. Yeah i was still using an old initramfs. I didn't realise the name has chages. It works great now.

Re: ArchCK & new Udev

Upgrade to 4.2 archck gives kernel panic with /sbin/lilo OK.

Arch is OK:archck=kernel panic

EDIT:  Pacman -R kernel26archck.....pacman  -S kernel26archck..../sbin/lilo...

Back in business!!!!

Re: ArchCK & new Udev

Well yesterday afternoon I installed  kernel26archck-2.6.15.archck4-2 and now my DVD drive works. I did not change anything else so I assume the issue I was having with earlier versions of archck have been fixed....

Anyway thanks iphitus for the great work on this kernel build.

Re: ArchCK & new Udev

Maybe I'm just having trouble reading the documentation or something, but I was wondering how you go about using mkinitramfs to create an image?   I'm so used to it automatically generating on the kernel installation from Community.

Thanks.
