Start the week with some fresh seeds. I've just uploaded .configs for 3.0.40, 3.2.27, 3.4.8, 3.5.1, 3.5.1-gentoo, and 3.5.1-hardened in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

Hiya Pappy

I am wondering if you can help a master kernel messier upper :p

I have recently bout a DSLR camera and no longer require the XD stuff you helped adding and get working to my kernel. So what with that and the laptop requiring a new HDD i thought i would try and strip it out and update to latest kerenl from the old .config you did me, and to say things went bad is an under statement :(

Any chance you could help me out?

Code:
lspci -n

Dark Foo,

Its time you learned to fish a little ...

Go to http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/index.rhtmlx and paste your lspci -n into the window.

It will give you the drivers you need for your PCI hardware.
In the column titled Driver is the briver name as used by the kernel. You can search for this in
Code:
make menuconfig
if you press the / key.

We know nothing about your usb hardware, partition types or filesystems but if all that stuff works in your old kernel, it will still work in yur new kernel.

no it doesnt as i had to "fish" in order to get a lot of it in there to begin with, Pappy helped me to fill in the missing pieces, and as stated above i have tried to remove what i thought was un-needed and the whole thing went wrong, but i guess i should have expected the typical "Linux" response

Dark Foo,

I'm not about to set up a seed for your hardware. I can do that but you will learn nothing. However, I'll spend as long as it takes to help you to help yourself.
First things first though.

is not a useful error report. Post the error report verbatim.
If verbatim error reports are an issue, we can help with that too - thats part of the learning prcess.

In fixing problems, we need to work on wone at a time to keep the problems space small. Often, the first problem is the cause of many others, so in fixing that the others vanish.

seemed to have it sorted, found a version of the .config file before Pappy did the addons, did a diff of the files and saw where the error was - so guess i have learnt something :)

Damn! Sorry I missed all the fun. :)

It is definitely a good thing to move on and get one's feet wet in the mire of kernel configuration. When fortune smiles on me, my time will become a bit more limited.

I keep a copy of every .config file I generate. It's one of those resume things I have yet to use since I have yet to get my foot trapped in the door.

Cheers,
Pappy

It seems that once again, hitting the "POST REPLY" button from this thread sends people, specifically me, back to the main forum page. I have to hit the "QUOTE" button to post. Please fix again. Thanks.

On another note, I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r124, 3.2.28-hardened-r1, 3.5.2-hardened-r4, and 3.5.3-gentoo in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

It's kernel-seeds.org's four year anniversary. It really is. Look at the dates in the page footer at the site.

What a good thing it is that the hardened-sources folks let some source out today. I just uploadded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r127, 3.2.28-hardened-r4, and 3.5.3-hardened-r2 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

pappy_mcfae,

Happy fourth anaversary.

I'm just about to deploy my Gentoo on Raspberry Pi webserver to replace the Sun U10 that I used to host kernel seeds on, which in turn replaced the k6-2 that kernel seeds started out on.
It will have an old seeds site when it comes up. I'll send you more info by PM.

I just have a few security things to fix, like disabling root logins over ssh.

NeddySeagoon,

I wish to publicly thank you for your efforts in making my site happen. There's a lot of yammering about how we don't do it alone, and in the case of kernel-seeds.org, I didn't do it alone. I've learned a lot about the kernel, Linux, and myself. The fact that my first successful business venture is a site such as I have is reward that carries more satisfaction than pretty much anything else I have ever done as a person. I'd love to do it professionally, and I think I can get the job done.

I also want to thank the users who continue to follow my site through its myriad migrations. I'd say I've done pretty good keeping it up and stable on so many different networks. Who knew Time Warner was so welcoming to amateur web hosts, like me.

Thanks to everyone. Here's to another four years!

Cheers,
Pappy

CONGRATULATIONS PAPPY & KERNEL SEEDS!!!

2008, huh? I was working on satellite communications cryptography that year in the DC area. It's truly an honor to host a mirror of your site on my server, as it was configured with your seeds. :D

However, I am seting up gentoo on an old laptop this evening, and it has a Radeon Mobility X700 video adapter in it, and it wants firmware. This is new to me. How do I do it? I know you set up a lot of older machines, so I thought you might have some advice. :?:

I know this is not really a seeds question, but the laptop is a 2007 vintage HP nw8240, with a 32 bit intel processor and 2 GB or ram and an IDE hard drive. My wife's sister needs it for her work, and it won't run win7 because the chipsets are too old, so I decided to set it up on gentoo and then run vmware and run win7 32-bit inside the vmware. :twisted:

But first I need to get the display working. My sister in law also has 3 grandsons, and they need decent video performance for netflix and games, etc.

I have always used vnc and so I have not set up very many machines with video hardware drivers, as for servers, vnc works fine, and the video hardware is only used as a boot console, and even that goes thru a kvm switch and an ipeps for remote control. I then run a vnc viewer on my laptop -- wherever I may be located at the time -- and I see the desired machine's screen on my laptop. This is really handy when I am 1000 miles away from my servers, especially when combined with an ibootbar for remote power control to force a reboot if needed. I travel a lot in my work 8)

Moriah,

The grpahics card will work without firmware but there will be no 3D hardware acceleration.

Graphics cards with firmware are like wireless cards with firmware. There are four combinations, only two of which work.
Firmware and driver built into the kernel is good.
Firmware in /lib/firmware and kernel drivers as <M> works.
Driver built into the kernel and firmare in /lib/firmware fails as /lib is not mounted when the kernel tries to laod the fitmware.
draibve as <M> and firmware in the kernel fails as the module has no way of reading the firmware from the kernel. Its also been disgarded in the xxxK init RAM freed.

For Xorg, you need the radeon driver. VIDEO_CARDS="radeon"
In te kernel you need
Code:
   │ │    --- /dev/agpgart (AGP Support)                                    │ │ 
  │ │    < >   AMD Opteron/Athlon64 on-CPU GART support                    │ │ 
  │ │    < >   Intel 440LX/BX/GX, I8xx and E7x05 chipset support           │ │ 
  │ │    < >   SiS chipset support                                         │ │ 
  │ │    < >   VIA chipset support
choose your motherboard chpset - not your graphics card and
Code:
│    --- Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support│ │ 
  │ │    [ ]   Allow to specify an EDID data set instead of probing for it │ │ 
  │ │    < >   3dfx Banshee/Voodoo3+ (NEW)                                 │ │ 
  │ │    < >   ATI Rage 128 (NEW)                                          │ │ 
  │ │    <M>   ATI Radeon                                                  │ │ 
  │ │    [*]     Enable modesetting on radeon by default - NEW DRIVER      │ │ 
  │ │    < >   Nouveau (nVidia) cards (NEW)                                │ │ 
  │ │          I2C encoder or helper chips  --->                           │ │ 
  │ │    < >   Matrox g200/g400 (NEW)                                      │ │ 
  │ │    < >   SiS video cards (NEW)                                       │ │ 
  │ │    < >   Via unichrome video cards (NEW)                             │ │ 
  │ │    < >   Savage video cards (NEW)                                    │ │ 
  │ │    < >   DRM driver for VMware Virtual GPU (NEW)                     │ │ 
  │ │    < >   Intel GMA5/600 KMS Framebuffer (NEW)                        │ │ 
  │ │    < >   DisplayLink (NEW)                                           │ │ 
  │ │    < >   AST server chips (NEW)                                      │ │ 
  │ │    < >   Kernel modesetting driver for MGA G200 server engines (NEW) │ │ 
  │ │    < >   Cirrus driver for QEMU emulated device (NEW)     

Make the AGPGART and ATI Radeon <M> and put the firmware in /lib/firmware.
Code:
 emerge linux-firmware
probably does that for you.

The difference between built in and modules.
a) built in is harder - make it work first
b) your free framebuffer starts earlier with built in as it does not need to wait for root to be mounted to load the module.

While I remember, you must make sure that *ALL* framebuffer drivers are off.

My van no longer overheats. It's a good thing that brass radiators are rebuildable. On another good note, the dam broke at kernel.org. More new sources means more new seeds. I've just uploaded .configs for 3.0.43, 3.2.29, 3.4.11, and 3.5.4 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

Neddy:

I followed your instructions and the display driver worked fine. I did it as a module, as you suggested. This laptop has no AGP, but the Radeon display works. The console is now 1920x1200 pixels super hi-res, instead of 80x25 chars. :D

I then emerged xorg and the X DISPLAY works too, with xterm coming right up, and the mouse doing its thing -- x and y motion, copy, paste, etc., but the keyboard is dead. :evil:

Any ideas?

Keyboard dead on X: Xserver rule Ok?

my keyboard section is as following

Code:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier  "keyboard-all"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver      "evdev"
        Option      "xkb_rules" "xorg"
        Option      "xkb_model" "evdev"
        Option      "xkb_layout" "de"
        Option      "xkb_xariant" "nodeadkeys"
EndSection


If a genkernel kernel works, you may have forgotten to add the option
CONFIG_HID_SUPPORT=y
CONFIG_HID=y
CONFIG_USB_HID=m
+ your appropiate keyboard driver

Input device support --->
<*> Event interface

[*] HID Devices --->
-*- Generic HID support
<*> USB Human Interface Device (full HID) support

To jump in, by no keyboard, you mean the built in one? If so, does it work before boot? If yes, then you need to enable ps/2 support for it. It seems as if that's a kernel default. If it's an external, then I'd vote for a USB driver not set up properly.

Cheers,
Pappy
