2.2.18 and 4.0.2 compatible?

2.2.18 and 4.0.2 compatible?

Post by News » Thu, 21 Dec 2000 03:57:10

I had 2.2.18 compiled and working but the keymapping for x was all messed
up.  After reading through the posts it seemed that upgrading from XFree86
3.x.x to 4.0.2 might help with the problem.  Now I get error 111, unable to
load fonts error when typing startx.  It seems to be unable to get a socket
connection to the font server.  Is 4.0.2 uncompatible with 2.2.18?

Thanks for any help.



1. Ooops on 2.2.18...


I misconfigured my Linux 2.2.18 kernel: forgot to include the network
device, which is kind of essential for a machine with nfs-root.....
So it just sat there waiting for the root floppy... Then I recompiled
my kernel, but when I came back to the console I saw:

Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M
FDC 0 is a post-1991 82077
scsi : 0 hosts.
scsi : detected total.
IP-Config: No network devices available
Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.
VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
(Warning, this kernel has no ramdisk support)
VFS: Insert root floppy and press ENTER
end_request: I/O error, dev 02:00 (floppy), sector 0
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000008
current->tss.cr3 = 00101000, %cr3 = 00101000

If someone has some desire to fix something, you can try to find/fix

The recompile of course overwrote the symbol table from the kernel
that I was running...
