Kernel 2.6.11 on a Compaq Deskpro Pentium II.
Installed X11 and Gnome, if I start HALD I get the error:

* Starting D-BUS system messagebus... [ ok ]
* CONFIG_HOTPLUG not enabled for this kernel!
* ERROR: Problem starting needed services.
* "hald" was not started.

So, I installed hotplug. I did:
- emerge hotlpug
- emerge coldplug
- emerge udev

Start hotplug, error:
* CONFIG_HOTPLUG not enabled for this kernel!

But I can't select hot-plug in "Make menuconfig - General setup - Support for hot-pluggable devices"
It is not selectable, only '---'

Please help I am out of options.... :(

Do this and tell me what the output of the command is:
Code:
grep -i hotplug /usr/src/linux/.confg

My General Support > Support for hot-pluggable devices also has dashes beside it and all my stuff works great. It might be easiest to open up the kernel .config using a text editor and compile from there, assuming it is actually there. If this is a udev bug, somebody speak up as I haven't gone that way yet (I strongly doubt that has anything to do with it). You may want to go through menuconfig --> Device Drivers and browse through things like PNP and whatnot to make sure things are turned on.

CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_FAKE=m
# CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_COMPAQ is not set
# CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_CPCI is not set
# CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_SHPC is not set


I use 'make menuconfig' and 'make' for the kernel.
How do I use the .config?

[edit]
menuconfig --> Device Drivers - Plug and play support
isn't selectable also....

This is bizarre. Post the output of emerge --info. If you don't have a GUI set up yet, see if you can "emerge links" and use links to email it to yourself by doing "emerge --info > info.txt" and attaching that to your email. (The only reason I say this is that I heard of someone typing all that out!! eek!)

Edit: what's HALD?

I'm starting to wonder if this has to do with the processor -- the current Linux kernel may have problems on the pentium II that simply aren't identified very well.

Also, I'm not altogether sure what we can do about this, but this line kinda sticks out:
Code:
# CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_COMPAQ is not set
You can always open your kernel config in VIM or Nano or what have you and edit away. The menuconfig is nothing more than a menu frontend for setting these things instead of doing so with a text editor. After you've changed things the new kernel may not compile.

I'm not sure why PNP isn't selectable. It probably has something to do with General Support but I don't know.

My friend has the same problem. This might be a clue for fixing it from /usr/src/linux/init/Kconfig:
Code:

config HOTPLUG
        bool "Support for hot-pluggable devices" if !ARCH_S390
        default ARCH_S390


Try doing
Code:
make clean distclean mrproper
and try again. Also, make sure you selected the right subarchitecture (pc-compatible) and the right CPU.

If you find some packges is not selectable(unselectable,in make menuconfig the package is <---> and can't be changed.) and you want to compile the ipk files of this package,the just modify target/linux/<your platform>/<board name>/config-<uname -r> in the OpenWrt home build directory..Find the package name in the config-<uname -r>file and change something like "CONFIG_CRYPTO_ARC4=y" into "CONFIG_CRYPTO_ARC4=m",recompile,and you'll get the ipk package.

I think you are lost. First, the OP was not talking about OpenWrt or any ipk file. Second, your advice is flat out wrong. You should never manually edit a kernel configuration file, because that bypasses the dependency checks enforced by the configuration system. Third, you responded to a thread that was last updated 8.5 years ago.
