Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

I'm using a Lenovo Ideapad S12 (same as S10 just a larger Display). Is there any log or config file that would help to trace down the problem?

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

It has a Atom N270 32 bit. No support for 64 bit.

Well, my D260 has a Intel Atom N475 which actually supports 64 bits, and newer atoms are also including that support. I don't think is a bad idea including 64bit support.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Well it is not a new one and it has definitely no 64 Bit support. But I found the error today. Since 2.6.35 there seems to be something with the rfkill settings. I switched to a ipw5100 wifi card and there was the same problem.
After some google search I installed the rfkill package and turned the softkill to off some seconds later I got Wifi up and running. Same thing with the Broadcom card: rfkill softkill to off and finally it worked.
Thanks to everyone for helping!

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Guys i'm back smile Updated both AUR and google code...

@radiomist
i have a n550 and it supports 64 bit...But with only 1GB ram is disadvantageous the 64bit architecture...Can you try to add x86_64 in arch= array in PKGBUILD, then build with 32bit config and check if all is ok?

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Hi,

i just wanted to thank you for this project.
2 weeks ago i discovered the power of arch linux and the huge possibility's of AUR.
So now i tried to speed up my eee-900A a little bit with this netbook optimized kernel - It was already really fast because of the light philosophy of arch and xfce, but the kernel made my eee boot up much faster smile.
First i used the binary packages, but i noticed that the kernel wasn't compiled with touchscreen support.
Having a eGalax Touchkit in my eee i decided to compile the kernel using the tarball.
I removed all the hardware support which isn't needed for my eee during menuconfig (like wl, b43, ...) and added touchscreen support (evdev, usbtouchscreen module).
First i thought compiling would take very long but it was quite fast (maybe because i optimized it for  my hardware only) and the result is amazing xD.

So one suggestion: if there are many others out there having a touchscreen installed, maybe it would be good to include the usbtouchscreen module in the binary package.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Too slow wifi internet connection with kernel-netbook for me. I'm using a eeepc 1005p (Atheros). Maybe somebody knows how to resolve this problem. Thanks

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Hey,
Line 62 PKGBUILD:     "http://ck.kolivas.org/patches/bfs/bfs363-test2.patch"
This file doesn't exist. The only thing that it could possibly be referencing is the v363-v37x patches, which are updated weekly and would break the package if referenced directly.

Without removing this line and the links, the PKGBUILD fails because the package doesn't exist. Might want to remove it entirely or just utilize the 37x patch directly.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Hi,

Since the last 2.6.37 (and still with the .38) my touchpad left click isn't working(the button). Now with the update to the new 38 it still doesn't work and plus, after I start slim to login I can't input anything in the keyboard.. not even ctrl+alt+F[1-6] works.. so I guess slim is crashing... with the stock arch linux kernel everything works (both slim and left click).

Setup: Asus eeepc 1000h

best regards

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Hey, for anyone who would like it, this is a revised, working PKGBUILD with the 363-372 ck patches instead of the missing 363-test patch. An updated version could be made for those needing/wanting v0.373?

Im using C2D with intel 965GMA  chipset and ath5k, my hardware is well supported by this kernel.
i try the x86_64 flag, works fine, but needs edit broadcom driver to 64 bit (i dont need it, so i delete it). And add IA32 support to config

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Hi, just installed this on my new HP Mini with N570, works great.

Just had to modprobe the b43 module to get the wifi working. Other than that, no issues.

Thanks for the great kernel big_smile

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

I have an audio problem.  Namely, on a stock arch kernel when I insert headphone jack into my Samsung NC120 the sound immediately switches to the headphone. On a kernel-netbook it doesn't, I can hear sound from both headphones and computer speakers at the same time. I use pulseaudio, here is my snd-hda-intel module configuration:

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=samsung-nc10

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

It's probably because snd-hda-intel is compiled in the kernel in this package. I think you could just specify it on your kernel line in your boot-loader.

snd-hda-intel.model=samsung-nc10

Based on the AAO article on the wiki.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

May I suggest two changes to the default config?

CONFIG_UNIX=y

and

CONFIG_UEVENT_HELPER_PATH=""

udev needs those two options:

udev.readme wrote:

- These options are needed:
       CONFIG_HOTPLUG=y
       CONFIG_UEVENT_HELPER_PATH=""
       CONFIG_NET=y
       CONFIG_UNIX=y
       CONFIG_SYSFS=y
       CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED*=n
       CONFIG_PROC_FS=y
       CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER=y
       CONFIG_SIGNALFD=y

   - Unix domain sockets (CONFIG_UNIX) as a loadable kernel module may work,
     but it is not supported.

   - The deprecated hotplug helper /sbin/hotplug should be disabled in the
     kernel configuration, it is not needed today, and may render the system
     unusable because the kernel may create too many processes in parallel
     so that the system runs out-of-memory.

And systemd also needs the CONFIG_UEVENT_HELPER_PATH="" option.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Well, at first, I used the aurget method to install it on my COMPAQ mini (it's a HP mini disguised tongue ) and got a kernel panic without an initrd image and "can't load /lib/.../modules.dep" using an initrd.

cause: using UUIDs in grub.
solution: change to (recommended?) format of /dev/sdXX in grub's menu.lst

My question is: UUIDs are not supported on boot on this kernel build or something, or maybe I changed something that should not in menuconfig?
Tried with the precompiled packages and got the same behavior.

Other than that, everything's fine big_smile

Good work!

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Wish bluetooth was turned on at boot regardless of it's state on shutdown. Is this a kernel thing? eeepc1000.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

@RozenTensai
if you want wo use the UUID you have to create the initrd...And i don't think you want smile A feature of this kernel is don't have it wink

@cylverbak
mmh i don't use bluetooth, i disable it in the bios...If you can't to disable it on boot with yours desktop environment client, you can try to do it putting a line in rc.local usin the eeepc_laptop module...

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

My problem is that if I've disabled bluetooth and then reboot, if I don't specifically enter BIOS and re-Enable it, I can't start bluetooth with acpid.

Re: [Project] kernel-netbook

Thank dieghen89, looking now. It's been months since I've used the Arch kernel on the netbook smile
I guess not that big a deal. Just have to remember to always turn on bluetooth before shutting down.
