ACPI kernel for slackware-current


A week or so back I realised when I reinstalled my laptop to have slackware inplace of Debian, I used the bare.i image instead of the acpi one. I am using slackware-current. I will compile my 2.6 kernel soon, but I would also like to have a 2.4 kernel with acpi from slackware. Where will I find the package for it? I have downloaded the bareacpi.i directory but I dont just want to copy it, I would prefer a package. Any pointers?

there's no (official) package for that... just put the contents of the folder in your /boot (edit the names by appending the version) and do the lilo routine (unless you're using grub)... by the way, it's quite easy to make your own package of this using makepkg - but it's quite unnecessary...

Yes, you are right, not worth creating the package. I just copied the bzimage System-map and config files in /boot and renamed them accrodingly to vmlinuz-acpi-2.4.32, System.map-acpi-2.4.32 and config-acpi-2.4.32. Also created appropriate lilo entries, then lilo -v and reboot did the rest.

Perhaps the slackware installer creates a package dynamically during the installation.

i'm glad you got it working...

no, the cd only includes a package for the APM kernel, which is the default... that kernel package is used if you had it selected and you skip the kernel selection part... if on the other hand you choose the ACPI kernel during the kernel selection part, the installer does basically the same thing you just did - a package isn't used...

The 2.4.31 kernel with acpi enabled is called bareacpi.i and is available on your install cd in among all the other kernels.

yeah, i'm pretty sure he knows that... but he's on -current, so technically there isn't a CD (at least not an official one)...

BTW, if you were refering to my last post, i'm aware that there are kernel images for a bunch of different kernels in the /kernels dir on the release CDs, but i was just pointing-out that the only one with a *package* is the default APM kernel...
