Config_highmeme


Hi all,

I am installing a camera driver, which was not provided by any company and the driver is almost 7 years old and it was developed by some user. It was working fine till now. Now as the computer in which Camera is installed is almost 9 years old, I am replacing it with a new one.

While installing the frame-grabber card driver, i got this error.

"Please do not use 64G option", I checked the config file, the corresponding section of the shell script says that

if "CONFIG_HIGHMEM64=y" then show that message.

Can anybody suggest something to sort-out this problem.

PC specs are as follows:

OS: Fedora 11 kernel 2.6.30.---
RAM:2 Gb
32 bit
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Raja

IIRC, there used to be three high memory .config settings:

CONFIG_HIGHMEM=y
CONFIG_HIGHMEM_4G=y
#CONFIG_HIGHMEM_64G is not set

Don't trust my spelling, but the above is the way you want them set. You're telling the kernel you need it to organise 64G of memory if you set CONFIG_HIGHMEM_64G :-/.

Hi, Thanks

I didn't set this, I found the following in /boot/config-2.6.30----PAE file.

Can I edit this file as you suggested.

/boot/config-2.6.30---PAE

#
# Automatically generated make config: don't edit
# Linux kernel version: 2.6.30.10-105.2.23.fc11.i686.PAE
# Thu Feb 11 07:03:28 2010
#
# CONFIG_64BIT is not set
CONFIG_X86_32=y
# CONFIG_X86_64 is not set
CONFIG_X86=y
.
.
.
.
# CONFIG_NOHIGHMEM is not set
# CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G is not set
CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G=y
CONFIG_PAGE_OFFSET=0xC0000000
CONFIG_HIGHMEM=y
.
.


my driver Config.sh

.
.
.
fgrep 'CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G=y' $KSRCDIR/.config > /dev/null
if [ $? -eq "0" ]; then
echo -n "Please don't use the 64G option,"
echo " this will not work proberly (32bit=4G)!"
exit 1
fi
.
.
.

Please suggest how to get rid of this.

Simply use a non-PAE kernel.

non PAE kernel such as ....

my device will work only with kernel 2.4 or 2.6, and 2.6.9. I understood that kernel 2.4 can be loaded into only IDE type PCs, whereas I am using SATA one.
