jayTI'm trying to build a module, but everytime I get the error: ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid.03:28
jayThowever, I can build my kernel just fine03:28
jayTthe module is outside the kernel tree03:28
jayTjust a simple hello test module03:28
jayTmodules inside the kernel source tree are built fine03:28
jayTI have tried make oldconfig, make prepare, etc, and re-built the whole kernel,03:28
jayTbut always got that error when I tried to compile a module outside03:29
jayTcould anyone give a hint what's going wrong?03:29

philipballewHow do I put a the kernel time in my terminal when i issue comands?05:50
jk-philipballew: what do you mean by the kernel time?06:00
philipballewjk-, I have seen it by my kernal dev friends where on the side of the terminal the system time is there and shows next to each command and each line of output. 06:02
jk-so just the time of the day?06:02
jk-^ philipballew 06:03
amitkphilipballew: export PS1="[\d \t \u@\h:\w ] $ "06:03
jk-yep, what amitk said :)06:04
jk-but I'm a bit puzzled about the date appearing next to each line of output.06:04
amitkphilipballew: not really kernel related, but here are the keywords to google for: PS1 linux shell prompt time06:05
amitkjk-: you could remove the '06:06
amitk\d 06:06
jk-amitk: no, more that you're only setting the prompt, which won't affect terminal output.06:06
jk-philipballew mentioned "shows next to each command *and each line of output*"06:07
amitkjk-: PS2 is your friend for that trick06:07
amitkI suspect06:08
jk-PS2 is for the secondary prompt06:08
jk-not output06:08
jk-ie, continuations06:08
amitkaah, i see what you mean now. I doubt it is on every line of output06:08
jk-yeah, me too :)06:08
amitkmaybe he just saw dmesg with printk times06:08
amitkwhich might explain "kernel time"06:09
jk-philipballew: show us a screenshot if you can.06:09
amitktotally :)06:09
philipballewamitk, jk-  sorry, Had to step away06:24
philipballew export PS1="[\d \t \u@\h:\w ] $ " should be pasted where06:25
jk-philipballew: in to the terminal, and it will change the prompt temporarily06:27
philipballewalright, ill see what happenes06:27
jk-if you want to change it permanently, then add that line to ~/.bashrc06:27
philipballewoh, alright. Im ive seen it where it shows the system time. so you can see exactly when a partictular event happens06:29
amitkphilipballew: type dmesg and tell me if you saw that?06:29
jk-philipballew: I'm still not clear on what you mean by 'system time', and how that differs from the current "clock" time.06:30
philipballewdid like I would like when i tyoe dmesg i can have a system time stamp next to each line on the terminal output06:31
jk-that's what the numbers in square-brackets are - seconds since boot06:31
philipballewis that a common thing to have in your terminal?06:32
jk-no, it's specific to dmesg06:33
philipballewhum. haha. alright. Ill look around06:34
jk-you could add `| awk '{print strftime("%H:%M:%S")" "$0}'` after every command you type, but I don't think that's very convenient :D06:35
philipballewvery true. im trying to debug a possible kernel power management error to see if an error is the kernal or grub related. thought it might help06:36
philipballewmight be to much hassle06:37
jk-it's probably not a grub issue :)06:37
philipballewthe desktop will not restart06:38
philipballewive seen the issue be a boot loader issue, 06:38
jk-ok, that doesn't sound like a power management issue then06:38
philipballewhaha. it hangs on reboot, but shutdown -h now works fine. 06:39
philipballewseemes weird. but i think I have the wrong boot parameters myself06:40
* philipballew is now off topic06:40
jk-where does it hang? do you see the BIOS screen?06:40
jk-no, this is now *on* topic :)06:40
philipballewwhenever I type sudo reboot or just click reboot the comp shuts down all processes then says will now reboot and just sits there06:41
apwand what kernel command line options do you have07:15
philipballewwell easily07:18

* philipballew is doing this from sshing to his desktop (if that matters)07:21
jk-philipballew: yeah, that's cool. nothing unusual there.07:21
philipballewmaybe it needs something unusual to work?07:22
apwthere is a reboot=<letter> which switches reboot mode07:23
* apw finds the documentation07:23
philipballewit might be a bug for my hardware but the desktop is 6 years old so a big bug like this should mave been fixed07:24
apwphilipballew, not necessarily it may be unsusual h/w to have linx on07:25
apwphilipballew, ok i've pm'd you the documentation for the reboot=<x> command line option07:26
philipballewtrue. but i never had this problem with ubuntu and only xubuntu gives it. haha07:26
apwwell thats odd as i would expect those to have the same kernels, our kernels, and so to behave the same07:27
apwwhich ubuntu worked (version) and which of xubuntu does not07:27
philipballewi would to. i had ubuntu server on there and nothing07:27
philipballewboth 10.10 and 11.0407:27
philipballewbut ubuntu 10.10 didnt07:28
philipballewi ran ubuntu on it for years from 7.10 up to 10.10 and no problems ever07:28
apwso i can ignore the xubuntu thing07:28
apwas its a new version which doesn't work07:28
philipballewubuntu 10.10 reboot works. xubuntu 10.10 reboot = bad07:29
apwand which kernle does xubuntu 10.10 have in it07:29
apwcat /proc/version_signature tells you07:29
philipballewUbuntu 2.6.35-30.56-generic
apwand have you tested the same version in ubuntu 10.10 ?07:32
apwie. how are you comparing to vanilla 10.1007:32
philipballewi can run a live cd you think?07:33
sijiapw, goodafter noon07:37
apwwell you are telling me a fact about ubuntu 10.10 so i am assuming you have tested it, i am asking how and when you _did_ test it.  so i can work oout if that would have had a similar or different kernel07:37
sijiam trying here to fix the bug which we discussed yesterday07:37
sijican you pls tell  me whether this doc is capable of building kernel for beagle 07:38
sijiwhich is based on xdeb07:39
siji(till now i tried build the kernel directly in beagle , which consuming time) 07:39
philipballewapw it was 10.10 about 3 months ago. i tested it by knowing I restarted it and it worked just fine07:41
apwsiji, it looks viable07:41
apwphilipballew, ok so that had a lot older kernel so its entirly possible its an upstream stable change which has affected the kernel here ... you have a vanilla ubuntu kernel in your xubuntu image, so i suspect a real ubuntu install will also be affected the same way07:42
sijiinstead of linux-linaro have to use linux-omap3 right ?07:42
apwphilipballew, so the correct thing to do is now is to test those reboot= options.  as the kernel includes a table to select the appropriate reboot option.  let us know which if a07:42
apwany work for you07:42
apwsiji, i would guess so, i have obviously never actually tried it07:43
philipballewill do it right now07:43
sijiapw, ok will give a try07:43
amitksiji: you might find the author of the blogpost on #ubuntu-arm or #linaro as 'hrw'07:43
philipballewforce did not work. onto next07:51
sijiamitk, thanks i got him @ ubuntu-arm 07:52
amitksiji: I know, I'm there too :)07:54
sijiapw, amitk can you pls suggest some other method to cross compile the kernel 08:09
siji(am familiar with OE)08:10
apwsiji, i do all my cross-compiles in a regular chroot with the cross tools installed as in that post08:11
sijiregular chroot  = x86 chroot | Cross tools=xdeb & gcc-arm-linux-gnueabi ?08:13
amitksiji: I haven't used xdeb either08:15
amitkI probably should try again, it was broken last time I tried08:15
sijiamitk, i installed it with out any errors 08:16
amitksiji: it is the kernel compilation bit that was broken for xdeb08:16

tjaaltonhum, how to build an amd64.deb mainline kernel with mainline-build? it defaults to i38613:10
tgardnerapw, ^^13:12
tjaaltonlooks like it's hardcoded in mainline-build-one, I'll try creating one for amd6413:16
ogasawaratjaalton: I hand edit the mainline-build-one script to generate amd64 debs13:17
tjaaltonogasawara: heh, okay13:17
ogasawaratjaalton: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/664241/13:18
tjaaltonthanks, that saved me some time13:18
apwtjaalton, does it not make both by default13:19
tjaaltonapw: nope13:20
apwdon't understnad why not for you, it does normally13:20
tjaaltonthis is the -one script13:20
* apw thinks, is that something someone else added13:21
ogasawaraapw: or maybe changes didn't get checked into kteam-tools?13:21
tjaaltonmainline-build sends email to the list, so running that directly doesn't feel like a good idea :)13:21
apwogasawara, no whats used daily is whats in the tree13:21
apwmainline-build-one builds the amd64 first i think13:22
apwit does clean, binary-indep, clean, binary-generic (in <release>) and then binary-generic (in <release-i386>)13:23
apwso it defiantly makes both13:23
apwtjaalton, ogasawara, ^^13:23
tjaaltonwell it didn't here, though I did run it against linux.git HEAD13:24
apwwell ... it must have said something when it tried.  perhaps your chroots are not the right names13:25
apwtgardner, in case you hadn't noticed i've pushed up an empty LBM13:29
apwit even builds as of just now13:29

ogasawaraapw: was that the updated e1000e driver?13:31
apwthat and igp or something13:32
apwsomething like that13:32
tgardnerthat stuff should all be upstream by now13:32
ogasawaraapw: if I remember correctly, those were picked from upstream so O shouldn't need them13:32
apwok then off is correct for them13:32
ogasawaraapw: but let me double check to make sure13:32
apwgawd they have changed the login screen to be all mad and off centre, really jars in my OCD world13:33

brendandhi sconklin14:29
brendandsconklin - do you reckon we'll need to fully retest the respun kernel, or will the change be minor enough to make our results from the current valid?14:30
sconklinwell,  on one hand, since he tests didn't catch this, being a graphics issue and all, there's not much to be added by retesting. On the other hand, these are probably invasive changes so I think we'll have to completely retest.14:35
sconklinBut capping that off, we really don't have a fix yet, so we don't know what's required14:35
sconklinSo I think we'll probably have to recertify plus run some additional tests to see if the graphics work on those platforms14:35

kamal... along the way, the build yields warnings about "newt not found, disables TUI support" and "/usr/bin/python-config is not an executable".19:43
kamalapw, tgardner, ogasawara: is tangerine set up to build the binary-tools target?  am I doing it wrong?19:43
