Welcome to LQ
Before starting tux, you should configure it first. Read this manual for instructions about the various parameters you should define and this howto for more details.

Thanks for the help ...

I was able to install the tux rpm in my box.but got stuck in the following.

** how to apply patch to kernel.I was getting the following error

[root@\]# patch -p7 < /tmp//tux3-2.6.18-rc6-A0
missing header for unified diff at line 5 of patch
can't find file to patch at input line 5
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
--------------------------
|Index: linux-tux.q/arch/alpha/kernel/systbls.S
|===================================================================
|--- linux-tux.q.orig/arch/alpha/kernel/systbls.S
|+++ linux-tux.q/arch/alpha/kernel/systbls.S
--------------------------
File to patch: /tmp/asd//tux3-2.6.18-rc6-A0

** In kernel recompilation were to enable the tux support


Thanks in advance...

Are you sure you need to patch your kernel? I guess the rpm you've installed takes care of everything needed and you just need to configure the various kernel and system parameters according to the 2 links I gave you.

I tried to start the tux after installing(by rpm),but it through the error..stating that "TUX not implemented in this kernel"
Thats'y went for recompiling kernel after applying patch.

But dono how to apply the patch.

I suggest you to use tux3-2.6.18-1 since the one you're trying to use, is a release candidate (rc6). Now to apply the patch go into /usr/src and run:
Code:
patch -p0 < tux3-2.6.18-1
Then recompile your kernel starting with
Code:
make oldconfig
as stated in the patch instructions.
Search LQ for guides about kernel recompilation since patching and recompiling kernel is not an easy task.

Hi,
Finally got TUx to work,

Thanks bathory, for all your help.
The thing which i found was ...
I have two kernels in my system,
**Linux 2.6.20-1.2320.FC5
**Linux 2.6.15-1.2054.FC5
when i started TUx, the kernel-2.6.20 throwed some error.But i was able to start with the kernel-2.6.15 kernel.

Need to make the tux work in kernel-2.6.20,help on this will be more appreciated .....

Regards.

Glad to see you've made it.

Now regarding the 2.6.20 kernel, that is not working, did you patch and recompile it? Because looking at the patch code, it applies to the default /usr/src/linux directory. Run:
Code:
ls -l /usr/src
to see where the symlink /usr/src/linux points. Most likely it points to the 2.6.15 kernel, so you've patched that and that's why tux is working with this kernel. You can change the symlink and patch/recompile the 2.6.20 kernel as you've already done previously.
