kernel-xxx.pkg.tar.gz & 'su' in konsole

hi there!

i have a problem when i update my kernel via pacman:
every kernel which was available via pacman -Syu gave me after a reboot (yes, i did a 'lilo' after that!) _MANY_ errors.
among other things something like 'als-xxx.o wasn't found'. the system itself boots but it really isn't normal. what do i have to do to get them working? or aren't the kernels in current not meant for installing them?

furthermore i have a problem in konsole:
when i type 'su' in konsole and try to execute an x program since a while (not from the beginning) it gives me an ":0 display not found" or so (you know what i mean wink. in gterm it is working but gterm is soooooo ugly...

thx for ur help!

Hmm, I have no als*.o files anywhere in my modules tree (for 2.4.19 or 2.4.20).  Were you running a custom-built kernel before you upgraded?

I don't use konsole, so I can't help you much there.  Check your $DISPLAY environment variable and see if it's still there when you su to root.

als*.o...aren't those alsa modules? you need to recompile/reinstall them every time you install a new modules tree

no, no, no...

the als-xx.o was just an exampel! wink i have it for at least 30 files or so. i don't know for which files exactly the messages came. sorry for the mistake... smile

and: yes, the DISPLAY-variable is set...

Re: kernel-xxx.pkg.tar.gz & 'su' in konsole

jk is right, als***.o are "drivers" for the Advanced Logic System (or something) based soundcards. Used to had one in the old days, when sound was just bleep bleep to me
*undusts his envy24 based soundcard* smile

Re: kernel-xxx.pkg.tar.gz & 'su' in konsole

Do you rebuild your custom modules after you installed a new Kernel?
If no, then this is the problem. So please rebuild them (like nvidia drivers, alsa, lm-sensors etc)

Re: kernel-xxx.pkg.tar.gz & 'su' in konsole

no, except the befs-filesystem driver and the nvidia-driver i haven't build any modules.
is it possible that i have to do some settings in lilo.conf? like a ramdisk or so? afaik i currently don't have a ramdisk and everything runs. but maybe the rebuilt kernels need one
