kernel configuration question

Post by Martin Nova » Wed, 09 Sep 1998 04:00:00


I have a question about the proper entry for ne2000 pci cards in my
kernel file.
First I thought the "pseudo-device ether" would be enough for pci
ethernet cards, but they didn't work.
Then I added "device ed0 at isa? ......" and the cards started to work,
but i got a message saying something like "ed0 not found". Well this is
right, because there is no such device (the pci cards are probed as ed1
and ed2).
Then I changed the line into "device ed0" and the cards work and the
line "ed0 not found" disappeared, too.
Now my question is, whether this is the proper approach. I know I should
be happy that everything is working properly :) , but I'm still curious
whether my way is the right one.

Thanks for any suggestions, and bye

1. Yet another Kernel configuration question re: Redhat 5.1 . . .

I finally was able to make my way through what seemed to be a successfull
Unpacking, Compiling, and install.  However, when my system boots, it still
displays version 2.0.27 (Redhat 4.1) instead of what should be there,
2.0.34.   I thought maybe the rc.local file was wrong but of course it's
using uname -r to get the release version.  So 'aparently', all my efforts
to install the correct kernel have been for naught.  I would apreciate if
someone could take a look at the steps I've made and tell me if they can see
anything glaringly wrong.

1.    Obtained the new kernel from sunsite/unc   (linux-2.0.34.tar.gz)
2.    mv linux-2.0.34.tar.gz /usr/src
3.    mv /usr/src/linux /usr/src/linux.old
4.    tar zxvpf linux-2.0.34.tar.gz
5.    cd /usr/src/linux
6.    make mrproper
7.    make menuconfig
8.    make dep ; make clean
9.    make zImage
10.  mv /boot/vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz.old
11.  cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage /boot/vmlinuz
12.  make modules
13.  /etc/lilo.conf
14.  /sbin/lilo

Any suggestions would be greatly apreciated.
