Here is what I am going to try. I installed AntiX8.5 Upgrade Full Iso in Virtual Box 3.2 Oracle in my Asus dual core 64bit Ubuntu 10.04. I created a AntiX drive and installed AntiX 8.5. I am doing this because I want to remaster 8.5 with a Custom kernel supplied by oldhogshead.

I already installed the kerenl

Installing AntiX in VB would not let me use demo as a user name on installation. So I opted for user. Everything else is default setup.

No password saved in browser or update or upgrades done either. No mail accounts set up either. Just a kernel install and user name change to "user". passwords are stock live cd.

What I am trying to figure out is. Should I worry about this? From

http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/debian.html

Quote:
How do you use it?

There are some pre-requisites for the debian version that aren't there for the Ubuntu version.

You should install squashfs-modules for your kernel and either aufs-modules or unionfs-modules before you install remastersys. On initial testing from a net-inst lenny cd I had not installed these prior and something very bad happened to my install - it was unable to boot and the livecd created was also unusable. I feel it had something to do with building the initramfs. As another safeguard, its recommended to reboot your system after the modules are installed just to ensure it boots properly. If all that goes well, you are fully prepared to install and run remastersys for debian.


2nd. For the repository for debain squeeze (or should I install Lenny?)

Quote:


Quote:


where should either one of those lines go in /et/apt/sources.list and do I need to change anything else in /etc/apt/sources.list.

I will make a backup of /etc/apt/sources.list so after I install remastersys. I will bring /etc/apt.sources.list back to stock configuration. The next part of my plan is to make a live Iso of said install in VM with the new Kernel (2.6.32-1 mepis smp will still be there. I am not removing it).

If succesful. I will use Unetbootin to make a live Pendrive of new Iso. Slap it into my 701SD. Watch the Fireworks. :shock:

Any tips are welcome. Of course. As Usual. I have never done anything like this before.

Happy Trails, Rok

rok,

Code:
mm. There is a symbolic link /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1/build
However, I can not read it: No such file or directory
Therefore, I am deleting /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1/build


Hmm. The package shipped with a symbolic link /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1/source
However, I can not read the target: No such file or directory
Therefore, I am deleting /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1/source


After installing the kernel and rebooting to it, check in /lib/modules/(kernel_version) that you have the symlinks build and source linked to /usr/src/linux-headers-(kernel_version). If not, the following commands in a root terminal will fix it:

Code:
cd /lib/modules/$(uname -r)
rm build
rm source
ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) build
ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) source



If not running the new kernel, replace the string $(uname-r) with the actual kernel version, such as

ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.33-custom build

cheers,
oldhoghead

Booted into the new kernel in VM OHH. I couldn't connect to the internet with it. Using landline. Posting now in VM with 2.6.32 mepis smp kernel which connects up fine.

Went into ceni on new kernel. No interface found. Exit was only option. So I can't post using the new kernel yet (to show screenshots or termianl readouts). Kinda the Catch-22 syndrome here.

I just copied down on paper the fix it commands and ran em.

Quote:
cd /lib/modules/$(uname -r)
rm build
rm source
ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) build
ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) source


Figured it couldn't hurt. Rebooted. Ceni still couldn't find a interface.

Below shot is what is shown in Ceni with stock 2.6.32-1 mepis smp kernel.

Attachment:

screenshot.jpg [ 40.52 KiB | Viewed 3129 times ]


Nothing found under Hardware Interface is what shows in Ceni with 2.6.35 rok1 kernel.

It's a wonderment. Edit. Just hit me. is there a space between ")" and build/source or should build/source not have a space after "("

Quote:
ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) build
ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) source




since I can't copy and paste. My eyes are not like they used to be.

rok,

looks like the syntax is ok, of course this is new territory for me too. Did you try to as root

I compiled the kernel with the rtl8187se to be in the kernel, maybe something is amiss there,
could you check the /boot/(config of new kernel) and use the search function for rtl8187se and see if it finds it, if not then the build went amiss, maybe I needed to compile it as a module?

but anyway you could try as root


modprobe rtl8187se

iwconfig

ifconfig (wlan0, eth1, etc, whatever you iface is, exclude the parenthesis ) up

cheers,
ohh

I ran as root. Used the space bar in build and source entries also after ")".

What is confusing you is I am running VM ware in Desktop. Not The Netbook (I haven't wiped windows yet or installed any Linux yet to internal SSD 8gig drive Yet.) So rtl8187se don't apply to this hardwired IBM M57 Ubuntu Desktop running AntiX in VM.

I am guessing you just put the rtl8187se module in the kernel 2.6.35 rok1 and left everything else out. Hence why the stock 2.6.32-1 mepis smp works but custom kernel does not for land line. Just a guess. Thing is. If I just go ahead and abandon this VM ware remastersys (ever watch lost on TV?) project.

Install AntiX 8.5 normal like EXT2 File system to 8gig internal SSD ("/" 4gig. "/home" 4gig. No swap.)
I won't do the ndiswrapper trick.
Install the 2.6.35 Kernel .deb and upgrade grub. Boot into it. Will land line connection work in it or not (being lazy and not trying it to see yet).

(ducks for cover, don't rat pack/kick my ass OHH/guys ) I am looking today at Easy Peasy 1.6 (ubuntu 10.04). Just looking so far. Run Easy Peasy 1.1 on Acer Aspire One ZG5s internal 120gig sata drive dualbooting with Windows XP.

ok,

rok, all I can say is to try and see if it connects. I actually just used a stock kernel and only added a few tweaks, if it does not work, then let me know and I will compile another kernel, using Warren's config as the template and add the rtl8187se to that one, then I know it will at least work ootb for landline and hopefully for the wireless.

cheers,
ohh

Ok. Will go for the old Fashioned Install method later. Thanks for all the help OHH. I am going to give up on the remasterysys idea and VM and just go with what I know. It's only time (my wife like yours looks at me cross eyed :D)

I will also ndiswapper (edit: Just realized doing ndiswrapper may confict with your rtl8187 module so scratch that til I install everything and test) the mepis kernel so I get wireless. I guess AntiX 701SD users are gonna hafta be on their own without my help I guess. They can just go over my threads.

Happy Trails, Rok

After 3 reinstalls and editing /boot/grub/menu.lst and getting out of a frozen Desktop after inserting pendrive at reboot.
I FINALLY am posting wirelessly in AntiX 8.5 with

Whew. I tried installing with seperate root and home partition. First I get grub error 21. I edited grub till I got to slim. Slim fails to log in. I drop down to ini3 to see what is up. I start slim as root. Log in. Log in to default Icewm from root (kinda useless)
So I drop back down into init3 and try slim as user. I get a xinit file error.
Try reinstall again. Same stuff.
So I delete all Partitions and give the whole drive over as Ext2 file system "root" no /home. No Swap.

Reinstall. Have to edit grub at the boot screen again to load. This time I have ohh kernel on pendrive inserted. Slim Logs me in. Yay. Greeted by a frozen mouse and frozen Icewm Desktop.

At least I am getting closer. Pull Pendrive and reboot, Edit grub. Log Into slim. Got a working Desktop. Insert Pendrive. Use AntiXCC>Disks>Mount a connected Drive. Type in /dev/sdb1 and hit mount tab. Pendrive is now in /media/flash folder.

Hit run on menu and open pccmanfm as root. Go and grab ohhkernel and move to /home/ohhkernel folder. While in ohhkernel folder select tools/open terminal here.
sux
password
dpkg -i l (tab for the rest)

Got those
Code:
mm. There is a symbolic link /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1/build
However, I can not read it: No such file or directory
Therefore, I am deleting /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1/build


Hmm. The package shipped with a symbolic link /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1/source
However, I can not read the target: No such file or directory
Therefore, I am deleting /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1/source


while installing kernel again.

so I did

Code:
harry@antiX1:~$ sux
Password:
root@antiX1:/home/harry# cd /lib/modules/$(uname -r)
root@antiX1:/lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1# rm build
root@antiX1:/lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1# rm source
rm: cannot remove `source': No such file or directory
root@antiX1:/lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1# ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) build
root@antiX1:/lib/modules/2.6.35.3-rok1# ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) source


in terminal as root still
Code:
update-grub

let iit do it's thing.

Close pcmanfm as root. Open it back up again with run from menu as root.
Go to /boot/grub/menu.lst
Now kernel= shows uid address instead of sdb1 so I leave that alone (I left the top sdb1 mepis kernel alone to show what I mean. I had to change it to sda1 to boot)

On root=
everything was showing as (hd0,1) which would not boot. I had to change every entry to {hd0,0)

Fun and games. Wife is looking at me like "why are you always on the computer" :shock:

The top entry kernel line is wrong. I haven't edited it yet permanent yet. Instead of sdb1. It should say sda1. Will do it later. Whats funny is that mepis installer calls the live AntiX pendrive sda1 and gparted calls the internal SSD drive sdb1. So you install grub to sdb and it installs ok. It just puts in the wrong entries. for booting. Hence the grub error 21.

Your kernel OHH loads wireless just fine in Wicd. No problems other than the before HMMMM errors. Tired now. Will investigate later. Have not tried landline yet. But I got this half licked. Tomorrow I will check back here before I do a apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. Don't want to screw the pooch yet till I check back here.

Working AntiX 8.5 install on Asus 701SD with kernel supplied by my bro OHH with wireless working out oof the box after new kernel install and some grub/partition editing and a few reinstalls. Still have to figure out why alsa and sound is missing. Plus whatever else I don't know is working yet.

Happy Traills, Rok

Well at least we know the wireless does work, so If needed I'll use Warren''s config and roll a kernel and enable the wireless and everything should work then, Mepis Magic + a tweak should solve any problems

cheers,
ohh

OHH and I have been talking in PM. Just a update.

I downloaded

https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B3t2qHbasjtBMjJiNDIxMDItYTc3OS00ZWZjLWJmODAtMmNlN2Q2ZWE5Mjc5&hl=en&pli=1

Edited /boot/grub/menu.lst again after update-grub in terminal again.
Booted Kernel. "Everything" works but mic in alsamixer. All other sound works though.
Something to sort out later I guess.

Uninstalled 2.6.32-1 mepis smp
Uninstalled 2.6.35 rok1
Edited /boot/grub/menu.lst again to just show stevo kernel as normal boot and init3 boot and memtest.

New stevo kernel boots fast (about 20 seconds) shutsdown in 17 seconds. Cameram Touch/tap, Camera, Sound (except for mic), Screen resolution. All work. So we decided (OHH and I) that things are sorted.

Happy Trails, Rok

I tried smxi Anti when I had OHH hand rolled Kernel 2..6.35 rok1. Smxi reported no kernel update available. I guess when it saw I already had a 2.6.35 kernel. That it decided to leave well
enough alone. Just a guess though.

That was why I went the other route with stevos kernel. Just got done doing a

Code:
# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade


Leaving stock repos in place. Told Halevt default No. Nothing else was asked to be changed by
maintainers script. Was pretty painless. Installed jreu6-21 also before update and upgrade.

Do you want me to test and see what happens running smxi and see if the Liqourix 2.6.35 kernel
will Boot on this Netbook. You know me. I am always game. My history with Liquorix Kernels leave much to be desired though. :mrgreen:

For liquorix kernel, you don't actually need to use the smxi script.

The latest I'm using is 2.6.35-3

Liquorix Kernel Killed tap on mouse pad. I fixed it by making a text file in

/etc/modprobe.d

Named it

psmouse.conf

whiich left me

/etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf

typed in it

Code:
options psmouse proto=imps


Now tap works in Liqourix Kernel on EEEPC 701SD.
