vorrei farti partecipe di una cosa strana che ho notato installando il nuovo kernel: download e primo avvio tutto ok, al secondo avvio non mi parte più il server X, nè con il 2.6.38.8 nè con il x.x.x.6... avvio in safe mode, riconfiguro xorg ma niente... provo in questa modalità a far partire X e finalmente parte, quindi tolgo il login X automatico, riavvio in mod normale e faccio startx e vedo che il server si avvia normalmente, perciò riprovo con il login automatico e si ripresenta lo stesso problema O.O...
Può darsi che ci sono problemi di temporizzazioni e che il server X non riesca a partire per colpa dello SpeedBoot:
prova a disabilitare lo Speed Boot, si risolvono spesso tanti problemi togliendolo, io li notavo anche con vmware.

Ciao, NicCo

Con i Kernel 2.6.38.8 NRJ - Kernel 2.6.38.6 NRJ per Mandriva 2010.2 64bit, quando abilito da root raw1394 con il comando --> chmod 666 /dev/raw1394 mi da il seguente errore:

chmod: impossibile accedere a "/dev/raw1394": No such file or directory.

Con i Kernel 2.6.33.7 NRJ - Kernel 2.6.35.8 NRJ dando il comando suddetto, tutto funziona regolarmente.


Ciao da Salvo.

Il problema esiste ma non dipende dalla preparazione e build del kernel.

Lo stack del firewire è cambiato, infatti se provi a chiamare il modulo:

Code: Select all

# modprobe raw1394
FATAL: Module raw1394 not found.
Il cambio è avvenuto a partire dal kernel 2.6.37
https://ieee1394.wiki.kernel.org/index. ... ease_Notes
dv1394, eth1394, ieee1394, ohci1394, pcilynx, raw1394, sbp2, video1394

These drivers, a.k.a. the Linux1394 driver stack, have been removed.
firewire-ohci replaces ohci1394.
firewire-core replaces ieee1394, raw1394, video1394.
firewire-net replaces eth1394.
firewire-sbp2 replaces sbp2.
There is no replacement for dv1394 and pcilynx.
The drivers firedtv, init_ohci1394_dma, and nosy are not affected by these replacements.
Per la soluzione al problema, essendo che i programmi esistenti su 2010.2 cercano il firewire nel posto sbagliato
potresti provare questo se risolve con kino e dvgrab

Code: Select all

# ln /dev/fw0 /dev/raw1394
qui ci sono questo ed altri suggerimenti specifici che possono tornare utili a trovare un workaround al problema

installato 2.6.38.8 nrj X86_64 e nuovi driver nvidia.
nessun problema per il kernel
nessun problema coi driver (anche se ho una scheda grafica del paleolitico e quindi non ne sfrutto le innovazioni)
grandiosi come sempre

Well, unfortunately my first experience with this 2.6.38 kernel series wasn't as exciting as other users, as I experienced various issues:

1) booting with all defaults: normal boot time, but it ends with a blurry screen, it can be seen only a giant squared mouse cursor (only mouse movements active); trying to access any console (CTRL+ALT+F*) freezes the system, as it does with CTRL+ALT+Backspace
2) booting in "init 3" mode: boot time approximately 2 minutes (!!!), then it normally gives access to tty1; giving "startx" gives the same blurry screen as in 1)
3) booting in safe mode: same as 1)

Notably, at first boot, when the broadcom-wl module should be compiled, the process ends with an error, so the wlan remains "out of service"...

At the present time I did only these tries, anyway I can try next days with something different, but I fear I'll have to say goodbye to this 2.6.38.8. version.
Anyway, thank you NicCo for your hard job.

Oh, only for the sake of completeness, here's my hardware configuration: HP Pavilion DV2-1020, with Athlon Neo 1.6GHz (64bit), ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3410 (r600 family), the wireless card is a Broadcom 4318

Cheers,
Valerio

if in your pc you already used 2.6.36.2, and all hw worked fine, you can try instead kernel 2.6.36.4

Kernel 2.6.36.4 + -NRJ -NRJ-PAE for 2009.1, 2010.0, 2010.2

Hi,
I don't know about the broadcom module, 'cause some months ago I decided to change the broadcomm wifi card in my laptop with an intel module, that revealed to be much more compatible with linux, but I had a similar experience with an ATI card on my desktop. The solution that worked for me was:
- Boot in safe mode
- type su [CR] at the prompt to get root priviledges
- Launch drakconf and select the Vesa driver
- set the monitor to a low resolution, 1024 x 768 worked well in my case
- save the changes and reboot in normal mode
- Now you should be able to see your KDE environment
- go to MCC (Configure your computer), select the Hardware Menu -> Setup the graphical server
- choose the correct driver for your card and let the system load the proprietary driver
- set the correct resolution for your monitor, then save your changes and reboot

You're done.
An incompatibility among the new kernel and the last fglrx driver may be concerned (I assume you have already enabled the MIB repos), but I don't have the skills to deepen the matter. About the Broadcomm module, I remember that I had to wait a new release of the driver to have mine working with kernel .36.

I hope that the above will solve your problem

Scusami NicCo, mi ero appunto dimenticato di scrivere che la versione "stabile" da cui partivo era appunto la 2.6.36.4-nrj...È l'unica di cui ormai mi fido al 100% :-D assieme alla vecchia release ufficiale 2.6.33.7 ;-)

Sorry NicCo, I just forgot to write that I was already working with your 2.6.36.4-nrj, an absolutely stable release...It is the only one that I completely trust :-D together with the "old" official release 2.6.33.7

Saluti,
Valerio
Post Edit:
Hi, Andreas.
I will try your workaround as soon as possible, still I'm not using fglrx yet, because I'm used to check that everything runs right, before installing VGA proprietary drivers.
