I know I havnt posted a lot recently (been reading more so than posting). But I just wanted to thank you guys (shilo and DaOne plus anyone else thats ever posted advice here on compiling kernels) as I have just compiled my first successful kernel! I just recompiled 2.4.31, mainly just for learning though I guess it does make it more optimized for my system. Right now lsmod is showing this:
Module Size Used by Tainted: P
nvidia 3421612 6
agpgart 47108 3
and everything seems to be working! I'll probably do an upgrade to one of the newer fancier kernels for my next step. (I was thinking 2.6.5, since its in shilo's walk-through)
Anyway, Im just exited that I got it to boot correctly and startx and everything! I thought I would thank all the people that help out on this board cus without youguys I would never have learned this much.
BTW: is there anything you guys would recommend to do to make sure everything is running as smooth as it can? Tests or checks or something? Everything seems ok, but I would like to know for sure.
