Anyone got a pkgbuild for kernel 2.6.10?

It is just that i would rather get the latest kernel working as it probably has all the drivers I need in it patched rather than use patches on the surrent kernel which appears to be 2.6.9 rc1.

Or do I just hack the pkgbuild and remove references to the patches which presumably I do not need?


Kind regards

Re: Anyone got a pkgbuild for kernel 2.6.10?

OK, I made one, (I would say hacked, but it was more a case of banging it till it worked)

What I don't understand is which way we are supposed to be going on the devfs/udev issue.

2.6.10-rc3 does not have a menu option for devfs, so it is hidden away in the .config file I made as not set. so a couple of tries later and I fixed that by hand setting it, and the new /dev directory looks tidy, in fact very tidy compared to before.

What I want to know is what pseudo file system we should use going forward?

Or is this just a release candidate problem?

Or am I just going mad?

Incedently I am working on the bttv dvb problem, re my twinham dvb card if anyone is interested.

As a cautionary note, if you do make your own kernel and use grub I do recomend backing up your old kernel and setting a new startup option as it does save both time and ridicule from windows users.


Kind regards

Re: Anyone got a pkgbuild for kernel 2.6.10?

please, don't get mad b_w,

devfs is going to be taken out of the vanilla kernel sooner or later so udev is the future,

i don't understand if you used abs or menuconfig to do your kernel but i think it's best to use menuconfig and start from scratch, then you are just getting the default settings plus what you choose yourself, and you can use the same method on all distros,

good luck

I always build from vanilla+ CK patches... I'm new to Arch, so I have never used ABS before, just the good, old way- but I might do it now to get familiar with ABS.

I also build all my kernels from vanilla. No patches.. don't like this *g*
And the good old way works fine for me  smile

you can find all you need on arch ml
PKGBUILD + config
+ new hotplug build to avoid warning messages on bootup

Forgive me, but where?  I'd love to use these, and thank you for making them, but where do I get them.

Thank you.

Re: Anyone got a pkgbuild for kernel 2.6.10?

Doh!  2.6.10 is even worse than 2.6.9.  With both, my network cards do not work, and with .10 I also get "Lost Interrupt's" on my HighPoint IDE interface.  Oh well, maybe 2.6.11 will work...

Re: Anyone got a pkgbuild for kernel 2.6.10?

It works fine here (Con Kolivas patches added). It complained at boot time for "pciehp" module missing, and instead of scrutinizing I just added the module to /etc/hotplug/blacklist (and I do use the new hotplug version).
No idea if ACPI is working properly after that, it's a desktop computer.

pciehp is for pci express hotplugging
if you have such a hardware you can use it else it's save to add it to hotplugs blacklist

Thanks for the info. No, my mobos don't have PCI express slots.
