My laptop would'nt boot after installing 2005.0... I found out that i'd have to use "genkernel --udev all" to compile. Now it boot's fine byt my surecom nic dos'nt work! I know it's because I miss a module i my kernel but every time I do a "genkernel --menuconfig all" and ad the modul, my lap dos'nt boot. Is there another way to add a singel modul to the kernel without messing up the rest of the configuration :?:

I don't know if it's related, but do you use BOTH options to genkernel??
Code:
genkernel --menuconfig --udev all

It's important to keep the --udev switch.

I've tryed out the "genkernel --menuconfig --udev all" and it seems that the modul all ready is loaded.... So thats not the problem...

When i boot it look's like this:

* PCMCIA support detected.
* Starting pcmcia...
cardmgr[8012]: no sockets found!
* cardmgr failed to start. Make sure that you have PCMCIA
* modules built or support compiled into the kernel [!!]

* Bringing eth0 up via DHCP [!!]

* ERROR: Problem starting needed services
* "netmount" was not started.

And my coldpluging is running ok!

Are you sure that you enabled the right module for your card? What is the output of
Code:
lspci | grep -i ethernet
? Have you tried to compile support for your card directly into the kernel (choosing Y instead of M)?
And do you really need PCMCIA?
[EDIT] I mean lspci, not lsmod![/EDIT]

I don't get any output doing:
Code:
lspci | grep - ethernet


And yes i tried both as a modul and directly into the kernel....

I'm pretty sure I need PCMCIA! My card is a Surecom 32bit PCMCIA card and i works perfektly with the live CD.

But what about the "No sockets found!" could it be some thing about my IBM Laptop?

Please do not forget the 'i' after the '-'! Or simply post the output of
Code:
lspci

You can also try to identify the proper module corresponding to your card when you are using the livecd by trying
Code:
lsmod
.
Which kernel are you using, and what driver are you choosing for your card? It should be the same than the one given by the lsmod command.
Can you post the output of
Code:
rc-update -s
please?
I don't think you have a big problem with your laptop, it's just a matter of finding the right config!:wink:

Thanx nichocouk!!!

Problem solved.... I used the liveCD to identyfi the problem as you posted. I found out that I was missing the "Yenta_socket" modul.
I added this modul to my kernel! And it worked!

Thanx again!
All you guys rules!!!
