Whoops

sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x413c product=0x8137

This would be the correct command, forgot those values are hexadecimal.

I'm getting ready to install the new kernel. Do you know if the card support needs to be enabled seperately? I can't find a option to do that.

No, it's in there.

Great, thanks! Is there a website with info on kernels?

CrownAmbassador 02-10-2008 03:42 PM

The website I followed on how to install the kernel uses Lilo, but I use grub. As it didn't automaticly configure grub I had to do it myself.

The kernel didn't install a initrid file and I searched around about this and noticed that I only need it if the kernel only depends on modules or something like that. So what I did is the following:

Code:

title          Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic (recovery mode)
root            (hd0,4)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=97f69d92-ee47-41a7-92b6-c37e3a942561 ro single
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic

title          Ubuntu 7.10, memtest86+
root            (hd0,4)
kernel          /boot/memtest86+.bin
quiet

### END DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST

# This is a divider, added to separate the menu items below from the Debian
# ones.
title          Other operating systems:
root

title          Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.24.1
root            (hd0,4)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24.1

The last section being the part i added manually. But when I select it at start up I get a kernel panic saying "Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8.5)

Do you know what I'm doing wrong?

This should create at least one /dev/ttyUSBx device, possibly two or three. Do ls /dev/ttyUSB* before and after modprobe command to see what happened.

hi this card ( dell true mobile 5520) has GPS build in..but this GPS is activated only on Latitude D630 ATG (under windows) but under linux there are 2 data interfaces ( under win is one interface disabled except latitude D630 ATG there are two).
is there way to check if one is for GPS and one for modem?:)

rgds,

rgds,

GPS? Wow! I never knew that! I work for a company that sells them but nobody ever said anything about GPS.

yes, but it works only on D630 ATG...driver for Windows check by instalation
SystemID if something else then d630 ATG it blocks that GPS...

Your kernel has root filesystem support as module, all functions required to boot must be compiled into kernel, not as modules.

I do have the D630, but I don't know anything about it or how it works. Do you have one? I'm trying to figure out why I'm getting a kernel panic error. Driving my up the wall. I'm gonna start panicing!

D630 is not same like D630 ATG...i have D830 and TM 5520 is recognized under ubuntu 7.10 but i didn't try to use it like modem (i have PCMCIA Flarion card)...i'm just courtious about that gps, how to get it work..

CrownAmbassador 02-12-2008 01:53 PM

Emerson, I didn't even see the post about modprobe. The results are the same before and after running modprobe.

I can't find the root file system support in the kernel. Can it be calls something different?

Thanks.

Emerson 02-12-2008 02:18 PM

root filesystem - the partition and filesystem where / (root of system, not superuser) resides. Usually EXT3.

Edit: If you are using SATA or libata drivers make sure SCSI and SCSI disk support are compiled in, too.

If you are using make menuconfig go to file systems;
here they are;

the * means support is compiled into the kernel so you don't need an initrd, a m means you do.

CrownAmbassador 02-13-2008 04:46 AM

Thanks comprookie,

I tried that now, but still the same problem. I've got a other thread related to this here. Some guys just posted something there, so I'm gonna check that out. Will be nice if you can have a look at the thread. I need all the help I can get.
