no prompt in Konsole or su in KDE on compiled 2.6.8.1


Hello all, I've successfully compiled and installed a new 2.6.8.1 kernel on my Mandrake 10 Official which installed with 2.6.3. The machine boots ok, with the exception of a few 'FAILURE's in red, (In work at present so I'll post them later) and KDE 3.2 starts fine. The only problem is when I run Konsole it just sits there with the block cursor at the top left of the Konsole window and I don't get a prompt, also when I try to run 'Configure your computer' and it asks for the root password I enter one and it says something like '/bin/su not found, check your path'.

This can't be a modules thing surely? When I do 'make modules' and 'make modules_install' where do they go? Do I need to set a symbolic like for /lib/modules/x.x.x?

BTW. I can get back to my 2.6.3 kernel and Konsole & 'Configure your computer' works fine there. Also once booted into 2.6.8.1 in KDE I do 'ALT-F1' to a terminal prompt that works.

Any ideas anybody, some help please!

This is the probably the problem:
Sep 6 22:53:46 earth mount: mount: fs type devpts not supported by kernel

Go back to configuring the kernel and enable devpts support. I think it is under filesystems. Recompile the kernel and reinstall it and see if it works.

AAAaaaahhh, I'm in work now, I'll have to wait a full 8 hours before I can try this.
The suspense is going to kill me.

Thank you very much for your post though quatsch.

If it fixes the problem do I click the affero button under your post?
What sort of awards system is the affero thingy?

i think quatsch is right:

Sep 6 22:53:46 earth mount: mount: fs type devpts not supported by kernel
Sep 6 22:53:46 earth mount: mount: fs type supermount not supported by kernel
Sep 6 22:53:46 earth mount: mount: fs type supermount not supported by kernel

Personally, i get a devfs error ... but nothing is really a problem because of it ... That said, how do you get supermount support in the kernel, isn't that an MDK specific thing?

Erm, pass, I don't know. It must be in one of the File Systems menus somewhere during make menuconfig.

Is it required?
Is it Mandrake specific (cause I don't really want to start down the route of making Distro specific kernel builds)?
Is it a 'super' version of automount?

God I can't wait to get home and try this.!!

supermount is a mandrake thing. You can get the patch somewhere if you really need it. I personally don't find it to be such a hassle to mount the occasional CD. My experience I've had with supermount was also not that great. Seemed to cause a lot of hangups. I don't know about automount but maybe it's worth trying. There's also a KDE tool that does a pretty good job mounting things automatically. I forget what it's called but it's probably somewhere in the menus.

The supermount errors are not much to worry about. If you don't want to see them, you can do
supermount disable
which changes the /etc/fstab entries (just to be sure, you should backup /etc/fstab before doing this) a little.

apropros devfs (not devpts). It's also something you can enable in the kernel but usually things work fine without it except that the /dev directory will look like a huge mess unless you run udev. It's probably better to enable devfs if the bootup complains about it. Some things might expect it to be there.

Ok, found devfs in Psuedo Filesystems and compiled it into the kernel (it wasn't selected for 2.6.8.1 but it was for 2.6.3) but I've just tried it now and I get:

mount: mount: mount point /dev/pts does not exist

in /var/log/messages, and still no shell prompt in Konsole and I can't run Harddrake because it says 'can't find program 'su', check you path' when I enter the root password.

Aaaarrrggh, I'm going to get a bottle of beer.

How is it over there in the big apple quatsch, my fiance and I were supposed to be there on Friday to stay with her cousin who is a nanny, but she got homesick and came back early leaving us with nowhere to stay. Luckily we hadn't booked the flights so we're going to Ireland instead to visit some other relatives.

hmm. what's your /dev directory look like after you boot up. Does it have symlinks called hda1, hda2 etc?

Also do you something like
'running devfs actions' when you boot up (very early on)?

comprookie2000, yes that's the menu I went into to enable devfs, but I
haven't compiled in or moduled 'Virtual memory file system support (former shm fs)'.
Do I need to?

quatsch, I didn't look last nite, but have looked before and my /dev/ did have hde1,
hdc1 etc. in it. Can't check my message at present (back at work) but I'm quite sure
I didn't see 'running devfs actions', just checked the old message file (prior to compiling
in devfs support and it isn't in that one either.

I just want to say thank you all for your help so far, I'd be lost otherwise.

We will sort this I'm sure.

I'm sure about the virtual memory thing but it probably doesn't hurt enabling it.

Also, you should enable 'automatically mount at boot'

Your /dev filesystem will contain things like hde1, hde2, etc. But if devfsd is running, these are symbolink links. you can check if they are symbolic links by checking their property. On a text terminal, the output of will give a trailing @ like: hda2@

BTW, you should be able to switch to a text terminal with
ctrl-alt-F1, thru ctrl-alt-f6 if you need to use the command line. You probably still can't su, though.

I do know that the kind of problem you have occurs when something goes wrong with mounting devpts to /dev/pts so I hope this is all on the right track, at least.

If I do 'alt-ctrl-F1' I get to my text terminal and I get the prompt and can login fine,
I can also su and that works fine there.

Do I have to mount devpts to /dev/pts (in fstab)?

yes, devpts should be mounted to /dev/pts using /etc/fstab. It's too late to do it after you login.

When you do
cat /etc/mtab
does it list a line with /dev/pts? It should if it was mounted properly.

and my /dev has a file (console / character c-r--r--r device?) called '.devfsd' and lots and lots of symbolic links in it.

I was also told by a visiting 'linux guru!?' that I didn't have 'Unix98 PTY' compiled in, it wasn't selected and I have left it alone so as not to interfere with the help your giving me.
