Just installed the GTK interface to see how different it is, but is just the same as the Qt one (but uglyer :P )

where you select sumting with a dash is going to be compiled as module, a check is IN the kernel.

I could give you a copy of my ".config" file if you want.

.config would be great

I did manage to get xconfig to work as well... so something accomplished. Yes I would love to have a look at your .config file. I've tried many different options but still no luck.

I expect that .config files are hardware specific and what I don't know is if something is suficiently unusual on mine to cause problems. It is a stock HP notebook and originally mdk installed fine, Knoppix also finds everything and starts perfectly so I don't think there is anything particularly unusual.

Thanks for your help.

Jim

I just sent a copy to you of my .config file.

Consider the following:
It is a simple plain text file (natural state)
You can open it with your 'gconfig' interface.
This is a desktop PC.
The kernel have a couple HP specific features.

You will need to customize it acording to your hardware.
Is not intended for you to compile it, is just for you to ONLY 'look' at it to give you an idea.

Hi Qucho,

Thanks for this and it was a big help. The machine boots quite well except I don't have a mouse or keyboard. In previous kernels I had an option something like ps/aux and it worked very well for both the touchpad on the notebook and the usb logictech mouse/keyboard when it was attached. I don't see this option in this version of .config. Where do these different options in the .config setup come from and is it possible to add this ps/aux options somehow?

Thanks to anyone who can suggest.

Jim

Well.. if you used 'my' .config without througfully modifications acording to your hardware, could be the reson of your mouse not working, but here is some hints.


My USB is: UHCI (this is in the USB section of the kernel)

You need to see what yours is (UHCI or OHCI) if any.

USB HID Boot Protocol drivers (NONE checked)

What about the BIOS support ? did you modify acordly to your hardware ?

This is in: Device Drivers > Mapping drivers... > Intel....

G... the list can be long

You have intel or AMD ?

If I had full specs from your comp, I coul prolly tell you the necesary modifications.

right on !

Thanks again,

Noticed the AMD choice, and mine is Intel.

I got the mouse and keyboard sorted out, and as you say it prefers ohci.

The disk I'm still working on, is an external HDD with both USB and 1394 connection. I would prefer to get 1394 working but no luck so far.

It also doesn't find my sound card so will have to wrestle with that one a little.


I think I did change the bios and turned off a few things that were not sensible for my hardware. It works much better now.

I must deal with other work crises right now but will get back to it tonight.

Help is very much appreciated.

Jim
