Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

ok try this (as root)

cd /tmp
cp /boot/<whatever> initramfs.img.gz
gunzip initramfs.img.gz
mkdir initramfs
cd initramfs
cpio -H newc -i < ../initramfs.img

Now what modules you have in the lib folder ??

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

hmmm that should be normal:
1) do u use fbsplash?
2) what is ur hardware? ordinary IDE or raid, lvm encryption etc ... etc ... ??
3) do u have the folder /initrd ??
4) what do u see before the kernel panic ??

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

1) Yes.
2) Ordinary IDE.
3) Nope. Arch-ck seems to complain about that too but it boots just fine.
EDIT: Err, sorry, I do have /initrd after booting. It complains it can't umount it before it starts running init because it does not exist.
4) Hmm, pretty much nothing suspicious. It just says it failed to execute /init.

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

No there aren't and it's not very easy to get them unless u use kexec (needs kernel recompilation etc..)
anyway the failed to execute /init is a bit suspecious already, are you sure that you are passing the good root= to ur kernel?

5) what is your root and boot filesystem, i remember someone around the forum had issues with the kernel while using resierfs AFAIR...

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

honestly. I have no idea whatsoever.

That error means that it cannot execute the script in the initramfs. For what reasons? I have no idea. The script is copied in there, and made executable when the initramfs is made. I can't see how that's going wrong.

Could you update mkinitramfs and then try building a new initramfs?

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

Hey iphitus, I'm having some trobule with Beyond2. I decided to try it out, since I'm a fan of Archck and all. So after I was all setup, tried to compile this patched version of Stelian Pop's sony_acpi module, which includes support for function keys. But for some strange reason I can't compile it. I even tried compiling the original, but still failed. I don't have this problem with the 2.6.16 stock kernel nor with Archck.

Here are my outputs when I do make.
With Beyond

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.16-beyond/build SUBDIRS=/home/tebari/source/sony_acpi modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.16-beyond'
  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.16-beyond'

With the stock kernel:

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.16-ARCH/build SUBDIRS=/home/tebari/source/sony_acpi modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.16-ARCH'
  CC [M]  /home/tebari/source/sony_acpi/sony_acpi.o
  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST
  CC      /home/tebari/source/sony_acpi/sony_acpi.mod.o
  LD [M]  /home/tebari/source/sony_acpi/sony_acpi.ko
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.16-ARCH'

For some reason It doesn't want to compile under the Beyond kernel. Other than that, all is fine. Any thoughts?

Regards,
Tebari

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

Ok, update uploading, keep a lookout for -2 in [extra]

wait till you see the diff for the PKGBUILD to fix it

http://cvs.archlinux.org/cgi-bin/viewcv … root=Extra
..... doesnt make sense to me, but hey, it works now. i guess some funky character got added in there that messed it up. despite the fact I copy pasted that line exactly from the kernel26 PKGBUILD hmm

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

Well, this is my grub entry:

title  Arch Linux  [/boot/vmlinuz26beyond]
root   (hd0,4)
kernel (hd0,2)/vmlinuz26beyond root=/dev/hda5 ro apm=power-off video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1280x1024-24@75 splash=verbose,theme:darch console=tty1 resume2=swap:/dev/hda6
initrd (hd0,2)/initramfs-beyond.img
savedefault


title  Arch Linux  [/boot/vmlinuz26archck]
root   (hd0,4)
kernel (hd0,2)/vmlinuz26archck root=/dev/hda5 ro apm=power-off elevator=cfq video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1280x1024-24@75 splash=verbose,theme:darch console=tty1 resume2=swap:/dev/hda6
initrd (hd0,2)/initramfs-2.6.15-archck.img
savedefault

The archck version works just fine.

Can't think of any more useful information myself. In any case, thanks a lot for your efforts.

LOL, that's definitively strange and random. I'll try -2 when the package hits the repo, since I'm to lazy to compile the thing right now.

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

I decided to give a new try to boot from a reiser4 root partition without luck. It gives me an error of cannot find an ext2 filesystem in my / partition.

I really don't know if this is my problem, if it is related with the reiser4-recognition bug or something else.

All my other reiser4 partitions work like a charm, i just can't boot from it.

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

Hello again.
Looks like the problem I had is related to mkinitramfs. I created an image using mkinitrd and now it's working fine, except for the fbsplash part.

Downloaded and installed kernel26beyond-2.6.16 without a hitch and am posting from the first boot.

Thanks for the great work, Iphitus!
