APM support in kernel?
Or, I suppose, default debian kernel configuration.
After being away from Debian for quite a while, deceded to give the
apt-get system a try. Loaded it onto my Toshiba (Sattelite something,
266 mhz). Downloaded boot(rescue) and root disks, plugged in PCMCIA
ethernet card, plugged into DSL and booted up.
<sound of gigantic slurping as it sucked the wires dry>
Excellent! Clean install, and 'apt-get install' is great for the
overlooked things. No more 'install it just in case' -- leave it off and
install it only if you need it!! Looks like a minimal system will grow
over time to be comfortable. -- now if there was only a pruning function
that would deinstall packages I haven't used in 6 months...
The kernel comes without APM support. OK -- compile one in. Trivial,
Compiled kernels (multiple tries from Debian 2.2.17 source package) all
seem to fail on boot -- seems like it can't find disk /dev/hda !!!
Haven't tried one without APM, but have tried compiling file system
support in kernel and in modules. (several combinations)
Has anyone had this problem?
More important, has anyone a suggestion or solution?
