The Kernel Of The Future

I had some ideas, here goes, please flame my gross inaccuracy. The Kernel Of The Future, John Tate. Currently we have hybrid-kernels, monokernels, and microkernels. We currently have at least one very good implementation of each of these and they all hold good ideas. The purpose of this short articl...

2.4.32-gentoo kernel sources; init problems(Sun Blade 100)

I have built the 2.4.32 kernel and it refuses to execute init however it mounts the root filesystem fine. However I have also built the normal 2.4.32 sources (not the -gentoo branch) and it works fine. I want to use the -gentoo sources because they have the grsecurity options and PaX and all that le...

I am thinking of trying Gentoo, the laptop ran Debian for a while but I just didn't like it at all. In fact, the whole distro really sucked in terms of stability.

The problem with running Gentoo is the laptop overheats pretty easily in the summer here in Australia from doing any cpu intensive tasks.

Its not Sony hardware smarty pants. Its pretty Generic hardware, that I am just finding recent 2.6 kernels are not liking one bit. If Linux is going to continue being this unstable on my laptop, its going to run a better operating system that supports my wifi card no matter what people think, unless...

Well, now it boots into a crash. I found something about Viao notebooks in the FAQ Some Sony VAIO® notebook systems may experience problems installing Fedora Core from CD-ROM. If this happens, restart the installation process and add the following option to the boot command line: pci=off ide1=0x180,...

Also, obviously if it ran FC3 for a long time, its NOT THE LINUX 2.6 KERNEL, but something SPECIFIC TO THE BUILD OF IT.

I just did a full mediacheck on the fscking disc, its not a bad burn for certain. Everything else boots on it, I was going to run FreeBSD (Installed it and everything last night) however I found it doesnt support my Wifi PCMCIA card.

Not a bad burn, it boots perfectly on other machines (I just tested it).

Everything else works fine on my laptop in regards to booting.

FC4 being quite odd on my lappy

I can't boot the Fedora Core 4 (i386) installer (DVD) because for some reason the kernel really dislikes my laptop. I get no error, as soon as vmlinuz (the kernel) and the ramdisk are loaded, it just reboots. This happens with no other Linux 2.6 kernel I have used before and I thought someone might ...

Bridgeing interfaces is an easy way to do it, I had heaps of trouble getting something very similar working a while back. Bridging on Linux is pretty simple, however I havn't done it in bloody ages. brctl or something is the tool for it. There is a howto on tldp I believe.

wth MATE

Here is something interesting that happened to me. I am sure anyone with Wifi, and even some without, know about channel overlapping. However I never knew how much they overlap. I was having problems with my laptop connecting to my wireless lan, it kept dropping out every few hours, and I found the ...
