2.4.0.?</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT><FONT
face=Arial size=2></FONT><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT><BR></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>1) There is a link in /lib/modules/2.4.0.11:
build-&gt;/usr/src/linux</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>created by the Makefile (make modules_install).
What for?</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT><FONT face=Arial
size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>2) Lines missing from
/usr/src/linux/include/asm/uaccess.h:<BR>&nbsp;&nbsp; #define
put_user_ret(x,ptr,ret) ({ if (put_user(x,ptr)) return ret; })<BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;
#define get_user_ret(x,ptr,ret) ({ if (get_user(x,ptr)) return ret;
})<BR>&nbsp;&nbsp; #define __put_user_ret(x,ptr,ret) ({ if (__put_user(x,ptr))
return ret; })<BR>&nbsp;&nbsp; #define __get_user_ret(x,ptr,ret) ({ if
(__get_user(x,ptr)) return ret; })</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>Some modules will not compile without these lines
included.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>3) Where are the drivers for bt878 (Video For
Linux)?</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>4) Some of the device special files are missing
when using devfs.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>devfsd is running (loaded at the beginning of
rc.S by init).</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>There was no /dev/lp0 on my system, even though
module lp was loaded.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>After creating this file explicitly with mknod,
the printer worked.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>5) This problem is probably the fault of X11 - it
doesn't repaint the screen properly</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>after coming out of console mode. I have to
switch back and forth several times</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>before I get a proper repaint. May be related to
using framebuffer with X.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>X crashes and locks completely when using sound.
Anyone know why?</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>6) When going through the bash command history
(using the arrow keys)</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>while in framebuffer mode, there will be a pause
for about 3 seconds - during this time,</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>the system is totally frozen until this pause has
expired. Any ideas on this?</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>7) How does one disable the display of the
penguin logo when booting in framebuffer</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>mode so that all video lines are available for
text? I know this can be removed with setfont</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>and possible fbset, but I would prefer the video
display be "normal" from the start. Thanks.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>

size=2>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>P.S. Ignore the ads that follow this line - this
is what happens when using free POP accounts.</FONT></DIV>
