Getting a 1.3.x Slackware kernel

Getting a 1.3.x Slackware kernel

Post by Chris Oli » Tue, 15 Aug 1995 04:00:00



I recently downloaded a Slackware release (v2.3.0) from ftp.cdrom.com
which ended up containing the 1.2.8 kernel rev.  I understand there exists
a 1.3.x rev.  I have scoured over several well-advertised Linux ftp sites
(and read many FAQs) and can't seem to find a 1.3.x rev anywhere.  Since
I'm taking the trouble to install Linux from scratch, I'd rather have the
highest stable rev. possible.  My main desires/objectives are:

1) [For those of you following the "Intel EtherExpress Pro (NOT)"
thread]:  Much to my chagrin, I am offically stuck with an Intel
EtherExpress Pro NIC.  Therefore, above all else, I require the very best
support for this card possible.  The author of the driver for this NIC
(someone named "Bao" -- I have his e-mail address) states the installation
of a v1.3.x kernel carries the proper driver.  Now I just need to find a
1.3.x kernel release...

2) I want to run CAP or netatalk.

3) I like to be able to run a Netware requester.

If someone could point me to a definitive site in which I could achieve
all the above or most of the above in order of priority, I'd appreciate
it.

Thanks,
Chris

Try sunsite.unc.edu in the /pub/Linux/kernel/v1.3

Good luck.

(BTW, if you get netatalk to work, let me know.  I have CAP running, but
can't get netatalk to startup.)

Thanx,

Ron

Be aware that the 1.3 kernels are experimental.  The author(s)
(including of course linus) have specified that it is for testing only
and the stable versions remain 1.2x (1.2.11 latest).  No 1.3 kernels
will be considered stable (if I understand their explanation
correctly) but the stable kernels will start with 1.4's.

At any rate I understand your trouble with your ethernet card.  There
are many MIRROR sites to sunsite which carry 1.3 kernels and many that
do not.  Here is a list of MIRROR sites in United States (I know for
sure the Salt Lake City has v1.3 kernel --  latest 1.3.18 - August 13:
 United States
   Atlanta, GA...  ftp.cc.gatech.edu  /pub/linux/
   Chapel Hill, NC...  sunsite.unc.edu  /pub/Linux/
   Concord, CA...  ftp.cdrom.com  /pub/linux/sunsite/
   Dallas, TX...  ftp.siriuscc.com  /pub/Linux/Sunsite/

1.3 kernel, you could find at
hydra.cs.helsinki.fi/pub/Software/Linux/Kernel/v1.3, or its mirror at
nic.funet.fi, or hamsterix.funet.fi. I believe 1.3.19 just came out today too.
A lot of neat changes in the compiling as well! So.. have fun!!

The main stable release (as of two days ago when I last checked) is
1.2.13.  The 1.3.x kernels are developer kernels and not necessarily
(sp) stable.

Thanks Brad.  You're right.  I'm on helsinki's machine now and the gz-tar
is pouring in.  I'm not real sure what to do with it.  Will it patch my
1.2.8 kernel to 1.3.18?  I'll play with it.  I haven't checked any FAQs on
how to apply a 1.3.x kernel, so I'll do that first.  (If someone wants to
volunteer any information in case I don't figure this out, go ahead --
make my day...)

Forget it.  Been there, done that -- the 1.3.18 is installed and working.
But my network still isn't working!  See the "Almost but no cigar on
EtherExpress Pro install.  Help!" thread in this group for the latest.
I'm almost there.

1. Slackware 3.0/Kernel 1.3.x and X-Inside Motif?

I just received X-Inside Motif and am having problems getting it working on my
Slackware 3.0 system (ELF) with 1.3.35 kernel. The default .xinitrc starts up fine but
mwm (the Motif window manager) seg-faults immediately (you see the window borders
form, then they go away).

Has anyone managed to get X-Inside MWM working in a ELF Linux environment?
