Title: bootstrap
Post by: kevin[bot] on February 02, 2011, 06:09:40 AM
hey Elmar:

I decided to use ploplinux as the bootstrap
os for a LFS-Like installation. After the process
I decided to just go with plopdevel instead.

After install, some kernel params were not to
where i needed them so i decided to upgrade
to linux-2.6.38-rc.

The install/modules for kern:38 are fine but there
are a few things that have me scratching my head.

One: myscripts/my does not seems to be loading leaving
       which is practically leaving the "rclocal" incomplete
        at boot.

Two: Alsa seems to be failing, but nmixer is working ok.

I know that the upgrade might violate the idea
of true "plop", but i am just wondering if there
was anything special you've done to the kernel
       = Maybe kernelcommandline options

-thanks [bot]

i don't understand. you are using the ploplinux development version and you updated the kernel and now some things are not working?

Hey, sorry about the delay:

anyhow, i wanted to build a kernel that would reflect
more hardware specific areas for my machine.

Oh, and the plopscripts are working, silly me was
confused by a simple radeon modeset=1 option
which made me believe the scripts were not working
but actually are.

Another thing is the gpmd mouse script i added to
media/ploplinux/bin seemed to not be loading but
in fact actually was. ( probably running too early in the
boot process ).

So in all i've managed to resolve most problems except
my alsa which i should probably check the wiki or kernel
wikis. The problem here is that nmixer detects my hardware
and allows sound and very low rates -- alsa identifies all
of my hardware but utilities/output fail. This must be
kernel specific, (maybe something to do with:
 hda_codec: ALC1200: SKU not ready 0x411111f0 ).
anyway -- that's my problem.

So in fact this all turned out to be a slight misunderstanding
based upon my half.

p.s. kinda funny with lilo though, building a huge kernel
raises error on mbr/boot install claiming 33 of MAX_31
will overwrite the kernel.
So i'm guessing i'll try extlinux.

Sorry about the short waste of time

no problem, you didn't waste my time.

does alsa work with my kernel?
did you load the sound modules with pciprobe?

hey again..

well it _did_ at once after pciprobe...

there must be something wrong with my hardware
because i even tried the usb version of plop and
still received errors about missing cards even when
running cat on /proc/sound/{cards,devices} shows
each hardware device.

So i've kinda tangled myself into something that's
gonna take awhile to get out of -- hopefully it turns
out ok.

Thanks again,
