I've been trying to compile the 2.6.10 kernel and have a few question related to this. I'm currently running Slackware 10.0 with the stock 2.4.26 kernel. Here goes.
1. Is the 2.6.10 kernel a bad choice? Which, if any, patches do I need? (same goes for other kernels if any other is recomended)
2. I have a Creative SB Live sound card. I've noticed that in the kernel .confg that there is CONFIG_SND_AC97_CODEC=y and CONFIG_SND_EMU10K1=y, though I belive I only chose the emu10k1. Do I need both?
3. After my last compile, when reinstalling the nvidia driver, I got this error:
The string "(gcc" was not found in the /proc/version string: "Linux version 2.6.10 (root@master)
(GCC version 3.3.4) #3 Fri Jan 14 03:31:54 CET 2005"; please report this error to
If you know what you are doing and want to ignore the gcc version check, select "No" to
continue installation. Otherwise, select "Yes" to abort installation, set the CC environment
variable to the name of the compiler used to compile your kernel, and restart installation.
I have absolutely no idea what this is about. I also got an error about riva being loaded as a module or compiled into the kernel, and the the installer quits (maybe it's not remembered correctly), would compiling without riva/geforce support solve this issue?
