Linux 2.6.6 Linus T Releases


Visit here -->>> Kernaeltrap. -- and read up on the new Version. For the Frame Buffer errors read there, that if you disable the 4K in, Kernel Hacking, 4th Optiion, say no, let it run at 8K, then the Framebuffer issue will not crash your system on 2.6.11.5. Go to this site and be sure you take a look, as I have been reading up on a lot here, to make sure that Ihave compiled the 2.6.11.5 correctly, found that I have not and many here have not also, and there they have some great answers to the problems related to out group issues.

also 2.6.6 FTP Site

Yes I will state, I have FTP'd the 2.6.11.6 and also 2.6.6 and will attempt the 2.6.116 for now. maybe later the 2.6.6, as stated on the other site linuxtrap, there has been reported problems with reisrejfs systems. Be sure you read all the "read me's" too. They are important.

Also the Kerneltrap is a nice resouce to review some of the things you may be needing to upgrade your kernel bug free.

Posted when I was falling asleep. Hurried to make it known.

I'm pretty sorry, but I didn't get what you wanted to say. This is no flaming, but please add some more dots, colons and things like that to your posting, so the sentence structuring gets clearer.

Greetings,

Ok, since getting this, one note, I have found the xconfig will break, along with the gconfig. Do I have to be in the XWindow To run these? Admits, this is the first time I have tried to run the "make xconfig", and got the error 2 "can not connect to the X Window Server"

Tanks a lot - this makes things much clearer. Since I use 2.6.11.6 this hopefully doesn't affect me. However, thanks a lot for the information (though you should give this thread a name which is pointing more to the solution you've found). I admire you contribution to the Slack community :-)

Greetings,

Seppel

Obviously you need to be in XWindows to run make xconfig and make gconfig
as the first use qt libs and the second gtk libs (both libs are libs that run in X session)

i always open a console in X and " su " to " root "
then:
-cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.11.5
-make xconfig
-make bzImage
-make modules
-make modules_install
-cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11.5
-cp System.map /boot/System.map-2.6.11.5
-cp .config /boot/config-2.6.11.5

( and i also copy the config-file to my home-dir. ).

allways works.

if you've edited lilo.conf ok. then just running lilo will do.

So.. what is the right way to do it..? I've been doing it the way it's been outlined by egag and it seems to work ok. Care to point anything extra that we all might have missed?

Thanks for the heads up

Well I must say. I tried it the way they posted it, the read me and for the first time, because I did not think I needed to, ran xconfig and it could not run. So I think it's a issue for the Xwindows, and not GNome or KDE. The GConfig is for Gnome I think, and I don't use that. the make menuconfig is the one for KDE. I think they need to post all that to make it more refined.

A few other things, Network information, I have used the IPv6 and Like it, but........forgot one essential thing. The network card setup. Well now I know to use the tulip settings and it will work. So next is the 2.6.6 and testing.

The site I sent everyone to is to get a better handle on how to.. and make the streamlining of the installs better.

Linux: 2.6.6 Released
Posted by Jeremy on Sunday, May 9, 2004 - 21:30

Sigh, I though we are having a dejavu and Linus Trovalds is revisiting the older release number to make it look more stable.


Note to myself: Must stop getting excited everytime seeing the word
released.

Ok, so asks what is the ACTUAL version? I have seen "Official 2.4.30rc typo" and 2.6.6. and 2.6.9 and 2.6.5 and so on. I have the 2.6.9 currnetly and am going to play with it. Is there going to be a 3.0.0? Just curious.

The Kernel Versioning is at best, very confusing. It's like the BC Calendar, it gets smaller by the version, not bigger? or ??? Still getting the hang on this. Setting up the initial Linux / X Desktop is not a problem, mouse, sound and display. These have come to me very easy. The Programming part is what I have trouble with. Versioning too. This is where a Linux Bible will come in very handy.
