Hi,

Assuming you use a 2.6.37.X kernel and looking at your lspci output I do believe these should be activated in the kernel:

- AGP support for intel [855GM]:
Device Drivers -> Graphics support -> /dev/agpgart -> Intel 440LX/BX/GX, I8xx and E7x05 chipset support

- DRM/DRI suipport for intel [855GM]:
Device Drivers -> Graphics support -> Direct Rendering Manager -> Intel 830M, 845G, 852GM, 855GM, 865G

Also choose the i915 driver (this one is for the newer xorg version)

After you made the kernel changes, compiled and moved the appropriate files into place you do need to reboot for them to take effect. If all went well you should be able to use the intel driver instead of the vesa driver (xorg.conf file).

I first wanted to make sure you have a running X using vesa (the "easy one") that has a working keyboard and mouse, before going into this but my hand got forced

Anyway, hope this helps.

Hi,

I just checked, the options and location are the same for the 2.6.35 kernel.

Hi,

You have done this before

When building LFS, this chapter: 8.3. Linux-2.6.35.4.

If that is the only time you tinkered with the kernel I would suggest doing the following:

1) Unpack the kernel source at the proper location.
Code:
cd /usr/src
cp /path/to/the/kernel/source/file/linux-2.6.35.4.tar.bz2 .
tar jxf linux-2.6.35.4.tar.bz2
rm linux-2.6.35.4.tar.bz2
chown -R root:root linux-2.6.35.4
2) Safe the current kernel files. You can boot from these at the moment so they work and you can fall back on them if something goes wrong.
Code:
cd /boot
cp vmlinux-2.6.35.4-lfs-6.7 vmlinux-2.6.35.4-lfs-6.7.org
cp System.map-2.6.35.4 System.map-2.6.35.4.org
cp config-2.6.35.4 config-2.6.35.4.org
3) Edit kernel options and compile kernel.
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.35.4
# first clean the kernel tree
make mrproper
# as a side effect the .config file is also removed, get the one that is currently used
cp /boot/config-2.6.35.4 .config
# edit kernel options
make menuconfig

# Once the menuconfig menu is shown, go to the sections mentioned in post #16 and enable
# them (they should not be blank, a * or an M should be present)

# exit and safe when done.

# compile kernel
make
# compile modules
make modules_install

# copy files to /boot
cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinux-2.6.35.4-lfs-6.7
cp System.map /boot/System.map-2.6.35.4
cp .config /boot/config-2.6.35.4
At the next boot the newly configured kernel will be booted.

I created an extra entry in grub so I can always boot from a working kernel. The entry is almost identical to the LFS line that is present, but instead of vmlinux-2.6.35.4-lfs-6.7 the original vmlinux-2.6.35.4-lfs-6.7.org is used. Post your grub.conf if you want this and don't know how to add this.

All steps mentioned as root user.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: Steps 1 and 2 are only needed once. Step 3 is all you need from now on to (re)compile your kernel.

LOL

I still remember my first kernel compile, took a lot longer then it does nowadays (8-9 hours vs less then half an hour, depending on your hardware). Boy, was I nervous during that long wait.....

But if you have a working kernel (you do, the ".org" version) on the side, you can edit/try as much as you want. That is the main reason I have a second LFS entry in grub. If the new kernel does not boot: Start the original one and try again.

If you don't have the extra entry in grub you can always use a liveCD to copy the .org files over the new files and reboot (the long way around, but it is a valid option).

Hope this helps.

I have a thought I have a hard drive that I think boots this lappy with Ubuntu on, Is it worth getting information off the files that run that system?

Hi,

Without knowing which xorg.conf.new you are using at the moment I cannot comment.

I would start with the version I posted in post #11. Do change the Driver "vesa" into Driver "intel". Then run the X -retro -config ~/xorg.conf.new command.

Please post the output of the Xorg.0.log file after that (and possibly what is printed to screen by the X -retro ... command).

If you do get an X as prompt:
- does the mouse work?
- can you exit using ctrl-alt-bksp?

The Xorg.0.log file should give us enough information (for now).

In general: It is always good to know what hardware you are using. X and the kernel both benefit when having this information (other parts do as well, but those 2 benefit the most). Both can/should be tailored to your hardware. It also means you need to feel comfortable with editing and compiling the kernel options.
