Welcome to LQ.

Your post has nothing to do with this thread. You should post in 'newbie' or in the 'ubuntu' forum.

Software RAID 1 + Custom kernel for HIGHMEM?

So, ok I have followed these steps to successfully create and load the custom kernel needed for HIGHMEM pretty easy and straightforward, however, in my current setup I run a software RAID 1 with `dmraid`, so when I load the new custom kernel I get a kernel panic regarding the md0 node. This is (md0) set in lilo.conf correctly as root= etc.., is there something I must do with the initrd?

than 700MB of memory, or to use a pae-kernel ? to be more
specific, is there stability issues related to PAE ?

2/ if i use a pae-kernel, is there some packages that
must be recompiled (except the nvidia and all packages
which are kernel dependent) ?

3/ is there more issues related to the nvidia driver when
used with a pae-kernel than when used with the generic-
kernel ?


I'm using slackware 12.2 and rebuilt several versions of the
kernel (the one I'm running now is linux- and I enabled
the PAE, so my 4GB RAM are displayed
# cat /proc/meminfo | head -n1
MemTotal: 4143788 kB

I don't have any problem with any installed package

I kept the 32-bit architecture in the kernel (CONFIG_X86_32=y)
perhaps, what you had in mind wad:
to have PAE is it necessary to have 64-bit as well
and my answer is no


can, data, get, help, how, installing, ubuntu
