Runlevel5 services failing after updating to 2.6.4
Suse 9 on p350/256MB/8GBhdd
I just downloaded, configured, and installed the 2.6.4 on Suse9, and during the bootup process runlevel 5, many services are failing-
failed services in runlevel 5:
syslog hotplug resmgr portmap sshd cups xinetd nscd cron xdm
skipped services in runlevel 5:
pcmcia smbfs acpid splash
If I boot to the old kernel (2.4.21.... -default suse9 kernel) everything works fine.
I have compiled kernels numerous times in the 2.4.x series, but this was my first attempt at 2.6.x- makes me feel like a newb again.
I don't really care about this, but I would also like to know why the blue splash screen went away on my new kernel but is still there with the old one. I duplicated the grub entry (I'm used to lilo) to look just like the old grub entry, but with the updated kernel.
A big reason for going for the upgraded kernel (besides experimentation) was because I was having dma problems with my IDE hdd. I did alot of googling and figured out that it was something to do with the way the 2.4.21-up kernels dealt with UDMA. Still getting the same problem with the new kernel as well, so I added to grub ide=nodma to kill the long timeouts and error messages- something about:
dma timeout error: status=0x58
dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x61
Drive works fine under 2kpro, and is on the same controller as another IDE drive that has no DMA problems.
