FEATURE: Recompiling the kernel for Compaq Presario 7xx Notebooks ACPI solution
Posted on Monday, September 1st @ 12:04 by PCLinux (Netherlands)
Recompiling the kernel
The proper steps for recompiling the kernel on Mandrake cooker are the following:
1) Install the package "kernel-source"
2) Make yourself root and go to /usr/src/linux
3) type: "make mrproper"
4) type: "make xconfig" (if you are in an X environment)
A window will pop up, which has all the configuration options of the kernel.
Here is what I changed from the defaults:
Processor type and features
Processor family: from 'i586' to 'athlon/duron/k7'
AMD mobile Athlon/Duron Powernow!: from 'm' to 'y'
Local APIC support on uniprocessors: from 'y' to 'n'
PCI hotplug support
Support for PCI hotplug (EXPERIMENTAL): from 'm' to 'n'
Advanced power management BIOS support: from 'm' to 'n'
AC adapter: from 'm' to 'y'
Battery: from 'm' to 'y'
Button: from 'm' to 'y'
Fan: from 'm' to 'y'
Processor: from 'm' to 'y'
Thermal Zone: from 'm' to 'y'
Toshiba laptop extras: from 'm' to 'n'
5) type: "make dep && make clean && make bzImage && make modules"
This took aproximately 2 hours to compile.
6) type: "make modules_install"
7) type: "make install"
This will install the correct references into the boot-loader (at least it did in grub)
Works perfect. (Was from an article where I can not find the source from!)
