Re: kernel-image-2.6.6-1-generic problems

Thanks everyone.

The libc upgrade did work and I got a lot farther, but then I saw a "Kernel bug" scroll past on the screen and then later a continuous stream of "System error"s flew by somehow related to the ethernet setup.

So as Steve suggested I am now back to the kernel-images from http://people.debian.org/~vorlon/fixed-alpha-kernels/

however I am still getting a bunch of unaligned traps from depmod.modprobe and then an occasional "unresolved symbols" message.

any ideas?

Last night I tried to install kernel-image-2.6.6-1-generic, but ran

two problems...

1) While installing (apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.6-1-generic), I saw a handful of unaligned trap errors from depmod. However

completed just fine after that. (As far as I know). Is this even a problem?

2) While booting, I got a message such as "RAMDISK too large!", then

couldn't mount a root filesystem and then panic'ed.

I had this last problem with 2.6.5-1-generic too.

Any suggestions for what I'm screwing up? Or how I can resolve the problems?

If the libc problem isn't it, you may simply need to increase your
allowed initrd size on the kernel commandline.  This can be done with
the ramdisk_size=xxxxx option in your /etc/aboot.conf.

Should I just stick with the kernel images at: http://people.debian.org/~vorlon/fixed-alpha-kernels/ ?

This is on an LX164 system.

You may find that these kernels are necessary anyway on an LX164 system,
but this is unrelated to the problem you're currently fighting with.
