kernel 2.6.8.1....


Hi all,

After compiling my slack10 to kernel 2.6.8.1 I have a problem with console. I can't boot at 1024x768x256 and the little penguin at top has disappeared. I re-install lilo with no results.

Here is my .config file
#
# Graphics support
#
CONFIG_FB=y
CONFIG_FB_VESA=y
#
# Console display driver support
#
CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE=y
# CONFIG_MDA_CONSOLE is not set
CONFIG_DUMMY_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FONTS=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y

In addition I have installed write access to my NTFS partition but the partition remains read only. Any idea?

Thanks in advance...

From http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...461#post660461

Code:
# Graphics support
#
CONFIG_FB=y
CONFIG_FB_VESA=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y
#
# Console display driver support
#
CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_DUMMY_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_PCI_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y

#
# Logo configuration
#
CONFIG_LOGO=y
CONFIG_LOGO_LINUX_MONO=y
CONFIG_LOGO_LINUX_VGA16=y
CONFIG_LOGO_LINUX_CLUT224=y
About the NTFS stuff, well, the write support is limited even on 2.6.X kernels (you can write but you can't resize a file, delete, create, nothing, and be sure that if you write one it doesn't exceds it's current size). I'd suggest you NOT to use this, but well, if you really need it try removing "ro" in /etc/fstab in the ntfs line.

Thanks for your quick response....

Solution is to line:

CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y

After recompiling with this option console is perfect.

Now I faced up another problem... I can't write with my cd-recorder...could someone tell me the configuration of 2.6.8.1 kernel in order to have cd recording capabilities? I think that scsi-emulator is not neseccary.

X-CD-Roast can't find any cd recorder...

With previous kernel X-CD-Roast worked fine.

This is a very common problem in 2.6.8.1, there is a fix floating somewhere out there I believe, but I have not come across it. Until 2.6.9 Im sticking with 2.4.27 for cdwriting purposes.

If you have an IDE CD burner then you will have to put ATAPI: infront of the device node number for your cdrw when you go to use it. They no longer use scsi emulation to enable cdburning.

Can you explain me how to do this?

Thanks.

I have always used the command line cdrecord program.

If you type "cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATAPI" you should get a list like this:

Code:
scsibus0:
        0,0,0     0) 'SONY    ' 'CD-RW  CRX220E1 ' '6YS1' Removable CD-ROM
        0,1,0     1) 'TOSHIBA ' 'DVD-ROM SD-M1212' '1R14' Removable CD-ROM
        0,2,0     2) *
        0,3,0     3) *
        0,4,0     4) *
        0,5,0     5) *
        0,6,0     6) *
        0,7,0     7) *
To burn an iso image id then type "cdrecord -v speed=40 dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 file.iso".

scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
Warning: Using ATA Packet interface.
Warning: The related libscg interface code is in pre alpha.

Are you assigning your IDE cdrom as a scsi emulated device?

revert to 2.6.7 kernel as I did, cd burning will work automagically as before
