It's a Sunday, so there are only a few new sources. I've just uploaded .configs for 3.4.4-hardened-r1 and 3.2.21-hardened-r2 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

I haven't made it yet. I am going to do that seed, as well as many others here in a few minutes.

Cheers,

Thats quite normal. Gentoo provides the same .config file in the kernel as the kernel devs provide. There is a defualt .config that is used when the .config file you are looking for is missing. The default isn't very useful to anyone. Thats why pappys seeds exists.

It gives you a good starting .config file to which you need to add your hardware settings. Its all well documented at kernel-seeds.ord or one of the mirrors.
Look in Pappys sig for links.

john-doe,

Please note that there are times when there will be time gaps when releasing the .configs. It does take some time to set up the system to make the seeds. While I do my level best to be as timely as possible with the seeds, there are times when that just doesn't happen. Since I am one person, it follows that I can't hop on my system every time there's a new batch of sources.

Cheers,
Pappy

I don't think it would make a good movie. Who cares about a fat guy who makes it easier for Linux users to get their computers up and running?

hehehehehehe!

Sounds a lot more interesting than most of what Hollywood is putting out now days to me! :wink:

Besides, travelling from Texas to California is almost like John Steinbeck's "Grapes of Wrath", and they made a movie out of that a long time ago! :D

Well, there is that. I do have a journal about the trip. Perhaps I should get off my duff and start filling in the blanks in the story. Maybe someone out here would be interested in that.

Cheers,
Pappy

I like it when old friends visit, like tuxonice sources. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r117, 3.2.21-tuxonice, 3.2.23-hardened-r2, 3.3.8-tuxonice, 3.4.5-tuxonice, and 3.4.6-hardened in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

A new kernel family dominates today's selection. I've just uploaded .configs for 3.5.0, and 3.5.0-gentoo in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

I am building a gentoo system for my HP Compaq nw8240 laptop. I scarfed the 3.3.8-gentoo sources kernel and the seed to go with it, and it booted on the first try. :D

I use lvm on the root filesystem, so this kernel is build with an initramfs. I first built it from an *OLD* minimal 2010 livecd which named the 320 gb hard drive as /dev/hda instead of /dev/sda, but when it boots the new kernel, it shows the drive as /dev/sda. I did this a couple of years ago and learned a lesson that I had forgotten: when using lvm, it causes problems if you build with hda then boot and it becomes sda. I am fixing that now... :evil:

However, that is not the only problem. I cannot get the ethernet eth0 to show up. Apparently, I have the wrong driver, because the right driver is not available. The debian lspci -n decoder shows:
Code:

14e4167d   Yes   Broadcom Corporation   NetXtreme BCM5751M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express   tg3   v2.6.25-

but I cannot find a "tg3" driver anywhere in make menuconfig. :?

Does anybody here know what driver I should be using, and how I find it in make menuconfig? :?:

Hey guys and gals...

It's Pappy, now coming to you from the sleepy burg of Pomona, California. I just moved again, and hopefully, for the last time. I love my new place, and I still really, really like California. I'm finally feeling a bit more settled, so it's time to do some updating. I should be able to get things done in about an hour or so. We just got back from San Diego, and I drank a big coffee on the way. That means, I should be able to get the site updated in a relatively rapid fashion.

So, I'm going to go do that. Hold tight, Pappy's burning the midnight Cali oil for my friends and users.

Cheers,
Pappy in Pomona.

Interesting how well that trips off the keyboard... :)

Moriah,
regarding your network driver have a look at
Device Driver -> Network Device Support -> Ethernet device support ->
Broadcom devices -> Broadcom Tigon3 support

That took a lot longer than expected. There were lots of old sources and some new that needed to be turned into seeds. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r119, 3.0.39, 3.0.39-gentoo, 3.2.23, 3.2.24, 3.2.24-hardened, 3.2.25, 3.4.7, and 3.4.7-hardened in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Now, off to bed.

Cheers,
Pappy

Hi pappy,

I'm quickly going through your kernel configuring guide. And I have a comment for the device driver section (page 8 ):

Code:
<*> SCSI generic support

This is an essential setting if you want SCSI support of any kind. This setting defaults to on.


And here is the help for this option, that, if I understand it correctly, does not mean exactly the same thing:
Code:
CONFIG_CHR_DEV_SG:

If you want to use SCSI scanners, synthesizers or CD-writers or just
about anything having "SCSI" in its name other than hard disks,
CD-ROMs or tapes, say Y here. These won't be supported by the kernel
directly, so you need some additional software which knows how to
talk to these devices using the SCSI protocol:


So I'd reformulate your description by simply quoting the first sentence here.

What do you think?

Looks like another thing I need to add to my list of things to do. Thanks for the heads up.

Cheers,

It's a good thing the hardened-sources are so good at their art. It keeps me busy. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r120, 3.2.26, 3.2.26-hardened, 3.5.0-hardened, and 3.5.0-hardened-r1 in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy
