<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>1) There is a link in /lib/modules/
build-&gt;/usr/src/linux</FONT><FONT face=Arial size=2>created by the Makefile
(make modules_install). What for?</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>2)&nbsp; (Answered)</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>3)&nbsp; (Answered)</FONT></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>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>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>I know this is a problem with bash - this problem doesn't occur when using
<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>
