I did it manually. My buddy Rob is helping me out a lot here: http://jlug.bihlertech.com/viewtopic.php?t=193 still having problems but I imagine I will get it going soon (hopefully). I can boot from the gentoo install cd. I even tried the 2.6.5 kernel (it worked with fedora, so probably some little mistake that is causing me so much trouble). thanks though!

instead of wasting a bunch of space here i thought I would just post a link to my query http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?p=1...1578389#1578389

I just cannot figure out what's wrong, am I doing something wrong or is it a bug in the kernel or something? if it is a bug do you know what other information I will need to provide to submit a bug? Thanks, it's really getting on my nerves, I was so psyched to get it going and then it does not boot and I do not see anything wrong, very dissappointing. please help. nobody seems to know.

*edit: It looks like at least one other person is having what looks like a similar problem http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3352 I am going to try to figure out how to emerge like the 2.6.5 kernel or something and see if it works, if it does then it is a bug in the kernel.

*edit 2: I have been told the first link did not work, try this out http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=2...8015&highlight=

looks like it is something funky going on, many others have problems too http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=223355

yes it is weird that it just vanished but it did. I was basically trying to get the 2.6test5 kernel setup. I did not even get passed unpacking the bz2, it told me it was corrupt. It is strange and no I never typed rm -rf /var/lib/rpm I think I am going to try gentoo. anyone know where I can get a network install disk for that? I do not have a burner. You are right though, generally it is user error that is at fault but I know it was not because i did not do anything, any logs that might let me retrace the steps to see what went wrong?

the /var/lib/rpm directory disappeared. I am not sure how it
happened but it did. this looked very similar to my problem but it was for Red Hat and they concluded that you have to reinstall using anaconda. I use Mandrake 9.1, would I also have to reinstall pretty much? I don't want to lose all of my files (I have lots of papers the I wrote for school and such). I would not lose any files right? thanks.

I started out with around 250 MB, I got the 2.6 test5 kernel. I untared it in /usr/src it gave me some error about the .bz2 being corrupt (I ran some program it reccomended to fix it and it created a million little .bz2 files which I want to get rid of, I could not do rm -rf /usr/src and I not want to go through getting rid of a million little .bz2 files with rm filename.bz2, it would take forever), it uncompressed some of the files into the linux-2.6.0-test5 directory, I ran Kdiskfree and it now says I have 10 MB left so I go into konqueror and go to /usr/src (in terminal I type su, then konqueror) and I see the directory linux-2.6.0test5 so I delete it and I see the .bz2 file's and I delete them, but I leave my current kernel intact. I check to see how much space I now have and it's still 10 MB! I go into the command line and check whats in /usr/src and the files really are not there. Where do you think the files went? please help I am a desperate noob!

yeah I just have about the same experience as you. I have a Dell Inspiron 2500 and it has some intel sound card. Well I startup and play around with it and its perfect. I go and start gaim and suddenly sound dies for everything except xmms. guess I won't be using gaim anymore. heh

got it now but when I go to boot it says:
uncompressing Linux, Ok booting the kernel


and it just sits there. any idea what I can do? thanks again

found this: http://www.spinics.net/lists/kernel/msg196770.html looks like I have to recompile again. 'Solution: By default, the display is not enabled. (Weird!!!)
So use 'make menuconfig' to enable them.'

so i am going to remove it all and wait a bit till the final release. nice to see that all the bugs i ran into were already in bugzilla. bye

I looked up isicom on google and only has rpms with no descriptions. Thanks for helping me before, yes I am going to file a report on both of these errors, i am not a programmer so i don't know what to do. Please help again. thanks

btw. i just found both these in bugzilla, http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153
and http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=283

i opened them up but i have no idea what i am doing (defineing a variable???) i will leave it to the pros like Linus

i am using this guide to help me get the 2.6 kernel up and running. i got to make modules and it goes for abit and tells me:

CODE
In file included from drivers/char/riscom8.c:51:
drivers/char/riscom8.h:84: field `tqueue' has incomplete type
drivers/char/riscom8.h:85: field `tqueue_hangup' has incomplete type

make[2]: *** [drivers/char/riscom8.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [drivers/char] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2


any idea on what i can/should do? Should I file this in the 2.6 kernel bugzilla thingy? thanks!

well thanks michaelk, I will check out www.linux-usb.org
I am running Red Hat 9. I do not see anything that says anything about USB in dmesg. I try lsmod and it says 'bash: lsmod: command not found'. so I don't really know what to do there. I found the man page for it on google but that is all. like I said its not urgent so if I can't get it its no big deal. Thanks again though, and I am going to check that site out now. I will try to keep you posted.
*edit: looks like I am going to recompile my kernel for scsi support, I thought the default kernel pretty much included everything (yes I know it wastes ram) like scsi support. I still do not know why lsmod won't work.

Here is the Hardware compat. list I would just give it a shot and if it works great if it won't well, at least you tried. If you have space in your case you should just get another drive (you can get some pretty cheap yet nice ones today) and put that nice RAID controller to work laugh.gif good luck and if you need anything else don't hesitate to post (after searching of course).

Hi, this is not urgent but if someone could please help me out with getting my External (USB) CD-R drive to work. I have looked up a lot of stuff on Google and can't find anything that helps. I have tried the command 'cdrecord -scanbus' and it does not even see the device. Yes it is plugged it via usb and connected to the power. I was talking to someone before about it and they said try to get it to read as a SCSI device. I am not really sure what to do, but like I said it is not making me lose any sleep at night so if you don't know either, don't worry. Thanks a lot. and also if you need any more information on my system let me know what and how to find that information out for you.

I also reccomend messing with hdparm like: http://linux.oreillynet.com/pub/a/linux/20.../29/hdparm.html says. I tried it and I am loving the results, much speedier, although I hear you have to be carefull or your system will hang.

Well I don't really know where xine went, um, it should work the way you did it. I reccomend you try apt-get, I am assuming your using Red Hat so you can go to www.freshrpms.net and click on your distro, go download apt-get install (as root) rpm -ivh then run apt-get updat then apt-get -f install then apt-get install synaptic then type synaptic and find xine, worked like a charm for me, way to go debian people with apt-get! hope that helped and worked.

yeah I had this happen some time back too (only with 8.0) Um, I never found a solution but you could try to login with a different account (I think when you have the save setting thing when you logout, it messes stuff up) and just copying all your files to the new user you just logged in as. Thats the only thing I did, never was able to fix it. hope that helps.

this might sound stupid and you I know are smart but did you try remounting the partitions? ex. unmount /home then mount /home ? hope that sorta helps. if not luckily some other nice guy make a howto http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/mini/Quota.html good luck!

ps. I love Zim, JTHM and all that too!
