Infomagic Aug 95-Slakware K1.2.8 and 1.3.15 questions

Post by Dele » Sat, 30 Sep 1995 04:00:00


I have recently taken the Linux plunge.  I purchased the Infomagic Aug
4CD develper set and tried to install the Slakware 1.2.x series kernel
on my system.  Unfortunately I could never get my Adaptec 2940 card
working with that kernel series.  I could boot off the floppy but was
unable to boot off my hard disk.  Someone mentioned a patch for the
2940 included in the disk set but I was unable to find it.  Anyone
have any idea how to patch 1.2.8 to include 2940 support?  Or, where
to get a 1.2.x series with 2940 support built in?

In the meantime after some frustration with the above and dying to get
into Linux  I decided to try the 1.3.x series which I was told did
support the Adaptec 2940.   I followed the instructions closely and
everything seemed to compile fine with the 1.3.15 kernel.  I am now
able to get Linux running off my hard drive using loadlin.  Yeah!

I have two problems now:

1)  I keep getting the following error if I try to access the man

Error executing formatting or display command
System command exited with status 35584
No manual entry for ls

2)  I need to install some of the packages I didn't initially install
off the slakware set (like X).  What is the best way to go about this?
Should I do a complete reinstallation of everything I want and then do
the kernel upgrade again?  Or, is there an easier way.

Thanks for any assistance.

1. upgrade from 1.3.15 to 2.1.26

I have been using Linux Ft , I succesfully upgraded the kernel from
1.2.13 to 1.3.15 quite a while ago. I recently downloaded the kernel
2.1.26. I can do make mrproper, make config, make dep with no problem.
With the final Make all goes well until near the end and I get:
(Standard Input) :578:Error:Unknown pseudop:'.rept'
(       ""             ) :580:Error:         " "              :'.endr'

Do I need to update some libraries or something, any help gratefully
