Reboot and you shouldn't have any problem with your cdrom showing up as a SCSI device. You might have to change your /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 to point to /dev/sr0 but that's minimal.

You must NOT select anything under ATA/ATAP/MFM/RLL support ---> ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL but it seems you did. You should have
Code:
# CONFIG_IDE is not set


That's the post that led me on the path of trying to get DMA working. I originally had settings for ATA/ATAPI... but the system complained about the DVD drive not using DMA. The system was stable, but it took about 1.5 hours to burn a full DVD. I then read the post and disabled the ATA/ATAPI... stuff, and tried to mess around with hdparm for the HDD and the DVD. The system no longer complained about the DVD not using DMA, but it would lock up under heavy loads. I just copied the config from

I’ve had quite a few people ask me how I’m doing my system, since it has been a while since I published my configuration files and instructions on how to get it up. I really don’t have time to write a new updated instructions (graduating in less than week), but I have uploaded my latest xorg and conf files. Just to note that I am using Xorg version 6.8.2. I know I lot of people are using the cvs version, but I have found on all my computers when I try this that it eats up over 384 megs of RAM so I’ve decided not to go that direction. I am also using the dri modules from dri.sourceforge.net. The version I'm using is from mid-april because I found that versions later caused some major X lockups and wierdness. This is also for people that have the i915 video card and not the ATI or NVIDIA as those configurations will be different.

I also change the source code of the linux code before I compile it also so that my cdrom uses the SATA drivers. In /usr/src/linux/include/linux/libata.h change:
#undef ATA_ENABLE_ATAPI /* define to enable ATAPI support */
to
#define ATA_ENABLE_ATAPI /* define to enable ATAPI support */

config-2.6.11-gentoo-r8
xorg-20050602.conf

but I am at work right now and cannot test the settings. I will be heading to lunch in an hour and will try the new kernel config. I am just having a difficult time with the new kernel and just want to see how other people have their stuff configured.

UPDATE:
I tried the new kernel config and it killed my system. I started getting errors so I booted to the 2.6.11-r11 kernel and my normal username would not work. I logged on as root, which works fine, copied my user directory, deleted the username with userdel -r rbjohns then re-created the user with useradd -m -G users,audio,wheel -s /bin/bash rbjohns. I then tried to login as rbjohns and I got about 7 errors relating to X, Gnome, and Nautilus. I had no menu bars, and the desktop background was black. I just changed the /usr/src/linux symlink from kernel 2.6.12-r4 to 2.6.11-r11, recompiled my kernel with a make clean && make && make modules && make modules_install && make install, and rebooted. I am at work now and I only have SSH access to my laptop at home, so I cannot test too much right now. Any ideas as to what would cause that?


EDIT:
I just created a new user named rob and I was able to log on normally without any errors. What do I need to change so that the name rbjohns is not corrupt?

PostPosted: Fri Jul 15, 2005 7:10 am    Post subject: wireless: a clean way Reply with quote

well, i am wondering what is the best way to do this. here is what i want (by the way, i am almost there).

i have both a wired and wireless card (b44 and ipw2200).

all modules load and unload properly. here is what i want. let me know if this is the best way to do this.

i have a /etc/conf.d/net and /etc/conf.d/net.wlan0. i also have an /etc/init.d/net.eth0 and /etc/init.d/net.wlan0.

i got my /etc/conf.d/net.wlan0 by copying over /etc/conf.d/net. my /etc/conf.d/net.wlan0 looks like

iface_wlan0="dhcp"
dhcpcd_wlan0="-t -5"

preup(){
modprobe ipw2200;
echo "1" >> /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ipw2200/stuff/led
return 0
}

postdown(){
modprobe -r ipw2200
return 0
}

the preup and predown are to turn of the led (stuff should be replaced by the proper number, just being lazy).

anyways, i then copied my /etc/init.d/net.eth0 /etc/init.d/net.wlan0. i then did some basic editting of that file to point to /etc/conf.d/net.wlan0. but, keep in mind, i really don't know what the hell that file is doing.

my problem is that i can start my wireless setup with

/etc/init.d/net.wlan0 start

but

/etc/init.d/net.wlan0 stop

doesn't stop anything. it complains that net.wlan0 has not been started.

it could be that i am not in a wireless zone right now (so maybe that it is why it is complaining) but i don't think so.

i think it is because i don't know how to make a /etc/init.d/net.wlan0 script properly.

any hints?

by the way, where does the computer store which services have been started and which have not?

thanks.

I don't know why you are getting the error that the service cannot be started, and the only place that I know of the look for running things is in /var/run/. I'm sure there are other places, but I havn't found them yet. I hope that helps some.

Hi!

I have the NEC ND-6500A in my inspiron and I can't get it to work with the tricks I found in this forum.

I have:
Code:
# CONFIG_IDE is not set


and applied the lancealtar's hack but that didn't help...

dmesg tells me:

After reading your post and remembering the numerous problems you've run into, I think you might have experienced some corruption. DMA is very sensitive. Have you had some times to power off your machine because there was no other way? With a bit of luck only your previous profile has been damaged. Save your documents, recreate the user with the same ID and a blank profile.

I don't think you should unload ipw2200 before the init script ends. In fact you are removing the module before the "stopped" state is notified so when the script ends the interface has already been prematurely stopped - as if the interface never had been up - hence the message.

Most of all, removing ipw2200 will prevent eth1 or wlan0 to be defined (I mean the node). Function preup() will be called after the interface has been detected - it takes the interface name as an argument. And if the module is not loaded how could the kernel determine the interface name?

As a conclusion you should just light the led in the postup() function (not preup). It doesn't harm if it's still on even if the interface is stopped.

thanks for the help vinzc.

however, i seem to be having a new problem. i am trying to set up /etc/conf.d/wireless and /etc/init.d/net.wlan0 and having a lot of trouble. for one thing now even if i do it manually, i.e. i just modprobe ipw2200, my card never seems to be able to connect to an access point. i always get

[code[
wlan0 unassociated ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Channel=0 Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00
Bit Rate=0 kb/s Tx-Power=255 dBm
RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:off
Power Management:off
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
[/code]

and it never associates to an access point even though there is output to iwlist wlan0 scan.

i read the man pages and they said this is probably a config problem. is there a way to reset all my config stuff???

hopefully i am being clear. thanks.

Just re-emerge ipw2200 and blank your /etc/conf.d/wireless file. You should also remove any pre- and post- functions (comment them out with a # sign). But I'm surprised you have a wlan0 and not an eth1 although you have a Dell Inspiron 6000. This is what I have, with ipw2200-1.0.3 and ipw2200-firmware-2.2. I would have expected all i6k would show the same hardware names...

I have had a few times where the computer froze and the only thing that I could do was power it off. I am currently using another profile, and I have run into a few times when it locked up. I do have everything saved, I am pretty good about backups. I really hope that I don't have to go through another install. Is there anything that you know of that I could try?

As is? no, not really. I'd say if you got a working kernel, all you would have to do is emerge -ave world, and everything will be restored from scratch, especially security attributes aso. Backup your config files before doing that and dispatch-conf. The key is to have a working kernel, no lockups nor disk corruption.

This is the message that I get on both my work Gentoo box and my I6K Gentoo box - I'm at home right now for my lunch break:

The most likely cause of this problem is that the server is not currently running. Verify that the server is running and restart it if necessary.

Could you just send it to me in an email? Thanks.

Thanks, I'm trying that right now. Does it make any difference with my default FAT codepage? You have 850 but the USA setting is 437. Could you also send me a link to a copy of your xorg.conf?


EDIT

I know that I am asking for a lot of stuff that I SHOULD be doing myself, but right now I jsut want to get a working computer as I am about to start classes and I need it to work for me. Can you tell me what you have in your /etc/modules.autoload/kernel-2.6 and the output from rc-update show. I am wondering if I am not having the right things load, or if I am trying to load the wrong things. Thanks.

Yes, I think so. If you live in the USA, keep 437. As I live in (French speaking) Europe I selected 850.

There we go :) . Note my XOrg config has a bit more than required. Only devices connected to pipe B (e.g. DellLFP) are useful. I had made (unsuccessful) tests with dual head hence both screens and devices in the config file.

Damn! you're quite demanding ;) (kidding of course).
/etc/modules.autoload/kernel-2.6 is empty. Coldplug does all the stuff for me.

Look above. That's interactivity, isn't it :D
EDIT: huh? message dropped?

Thanks. I really do appreciate it. So if your .../kernel-2.6 is empty, coldplug must load the ipw2200 module. Did you have to configure coldplug or anything of that sort?

No. That worked right out the box. Apart from setting WiFi led in a postup() function, as I mentioned elsewhere. But this has no influence on loading ipw2200.

Wow, I always thought that I had to load the ipw2200 module. Well, I am at work right now and my laptop is re-compiling EVERYTHING so it will be a while before I get to try this new stuff. My system did lock-up a few times while using your kernel config - granted I removed a few things that I didn't need and I added some stuff that I did need. I am hoping that the freezing is due to a bad config file, but I will know more after it gets done and I can test the hell out of it. Thanks again.

One more thing. I don't know if it matters as I never experienced freezes but I've upgraded my lap's BIOS with A07.
EDIT: and of course, my config might not be valid with other kernel sources. I don't want to paraphrase myself but try it with suspend2 sources.

I was not reading all of the posts about the new BIOS, but from what I gathered, the new one killed the system and X. I am going to read the previous posts about the BIOS upgrades, but I am going to assume that you are running fine with A07, is that correct?

There was a problem with A06 only. A07 is fine, yes.
