After a 3/4 year i have compiled another kernel !
Runs nicely with boot logo enabled . Two cores , two penguins !
I used a working older 2.6.34 .config because my first attempt without an old config had failed . I had enabled nearly everything and selecting AMD-ELAN processor disabled the cpu family menu . I had missed that but had thought , that there would have been changes to the kernel not to need this menu anymore . There had been a new cpu family menu and i had thought selecting intel would be fine enough .
The kernel booted up fine but failed to load any additional modules with
#define EOVERFLOW 75 /* Value too large for defined data type */
I had read some few on the net and one said that this happens if not compiled with the appropriate 32/64 BIT support .
I actually have a 64BIT capable machine and it needs some adjustments to
/linux-2.6.39/arch/x86/Kconfig file to enable 64BIT .
The syntax there is quite new to me but as can figure it out i could enable the 64BIT choice .
`# Select 32 or 64 bit
menu "*NEW* 32 64 BIT MENU *NEW*"
bool "64BIT 64-bit kernel" #if ARCH = "x86"
default y #ARCH = "x86_64"
Say yes to build a 64-bit kernel - formerly known as x86_64
Say no to build a 32-bit kernel - formerly known as i386
def_bool !64BIT if !64BIT
def_bool 64BIT if 64BIT
I really would like to know if someone had already linux kernel 64BIT compiled and what selection should be made , left empty or have to watched out for .
I am also stuck that there are no version patches anymore on
The last one to get there seems to be
patch-126.96.36.199.gz 10-Sep-2005 02:52 4.1K
but not patch-188.8.131.52.gz or patch-184.108.40.206.bz2
Does anyone know where i could find them ?
