I tried this kernel - from the test repo before it was in main v6 repo - it's the same?
Everything was running ok (reinstalled nvidia driver and alsa) except "vasm" didnt work.
So I went back to v2.6.30.

Any ideas why vasm didn't work?

Tried it again and got the same issue with freezing up at keyring password entry- starting vasmCC and su thunar (both ran ok as su from terminal). Also I couldn't get a connection on my zydas(zd1211rw) wifi.
Back on v2.6.30.

ok i did re-look in the repos

ndiswrapper 1.55 is there but its a .txz file instead of .tlz

i grabbed the ndiswrapper source 1.55 tryed to compile myself with the 2.6.31.6 kern and got the following error

*** WARNING: This kernel uses 4K stack size option
(CONFIG_4KSTACKS); many Windows drivers will not work
with this option enabled. Disable CONFIG_4KSTACKS
in kernel's .config file, recompile and install kernel

in my earlier experiment sound didnt work as i stated. i have found sound dose work.. but for some reason alsa seems to be "dumb" with the HDA VIA VT82xx sound card (sound card reads a analog and digital set. i have no idea why but it has given me issues on every *nix distro i have installed. sometimes it seems alsa wants to load the digital which never works resulting in me having to do 5 to 10 reboots just to get it to use analog so i can have sound but thats another topic)

In the past I have just downloaded and installed the 3 packages ( kernel,src & modules), changed lilo, rebooted, installed Nvidia driver and alsa. Voila! All was well. This time I get:

Do I need additional modules?

you should have all the modules needed in the kernel-modules pkg, I wish I knew what was causing your freeze, I have not seen or heard of that before with a kernel upgrade

I tried this last night, in a desperate attempt to save my original VL 6.0 install from problems caused by Xfce 4.6.1 (or something pulled in by the Xfce upgrade). Can't say I saw any freezes, but the machine did become very sluggish after a while. I'm going to have to rebuild that install anyway, so once I've done so and have it working, I'll try the new kernel again, see if it works any better on a clean install.

I have been running xfce 4.6.1 for ages. I must have got it from the "test" repo because I see it's just been added to the main one. Perhaps I need to install it regarding my keyring problems.

I see the latest stable kernel is now 2.6.32.

Thx t&n, awaiting the the new build.

 ??? Xfce 4.6.1 is still in testing ( :) and since its giving me all sorts of problems, I'm not moving it until those problems are resolved....)

:) I've yet to install 2.6.31.6 on my shiny new VL6.0 Standard install.  Tomorrow (or is that later today?) maybe.

Hi,
Up untill 2.6.30 upgrades from the complied kernel,modules,src seemed to work fine.
I have tried all the latest 2.6.31's and have had problems.

To compile my own if found these notes in the forum(below), but unfortunately it does'nt seem to work.
I would appreciate a definitive "vector" kernel/modules howto compile explanation.
Ty in advance.

First there is a copy of the kernel config in /boot
Start with that and then modify as needed. Then
make && make modules && make modules_install
&& cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot && cp
System.Map /Boot/System.map-<kernel name>
Then edit /etc/lilo add the kernel, use lilo -v to
add the entry and reboot.
I am sure others go about this in another way. This
is the process that has always worked for me.
If you are using the current kernel make sure you
have the kernel sources (It appears you know that).
