Smile New problems lol

Hi, i have followed this guide (which was supurb btw thankyu so much ) and have succesfully installed kernel-2.6.17.4 on my debian system. But now am wondering how one goes about instaling the kernel headers for it.
My problems all start when i bought a Netgear WG311 Wireless PCI Card, im following a guide for it i found

http://acx100.sourceforge.net/wiki/D...on_list/Debian

Found out in the sys requriments page you need at least a kernel of 2.6.10 which i had 2.6.8,

http://acx100.sourceforge.net/wiki/A...m_requirements

so i followed this guide and installed the latest kernel at the time. But it also says it needs the kernel header files installed which i cant find out how to compile or install. Ive tried installing the module-assistant and using the "prepare" feature which should install the correct kernel headers, but its unable to find any for the kenerl.
Does anyone know what to do or where to go on from here lol
Many thanks dan

If you compiled your kernel from the sources, then all header files are already on the system. If you installed a Debian kernel image, then you need to install the appropriate kernel-header package with apt-get. You can search for the appropriate package with
Code:
apt-cache search kernel

I'm not able to install a new xen kernel on debian sarge.
This maschine I have:
Quote:
vendor_id : AuthenticAMD
cpu family : 15
model : 47
model name : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+
stepping : 2
I've downloaded with apt this files and xen xen-tools etc.

With this xen-kerneln I've tried to boot:
linux-image-2.6.17-2-xen-k7 - Linux 2.6.17 image on AMD K7
linux-image-2.6.16-2-xen-k7 - Linux kernel 2.6.16 image on AMD K7 machines
linux-image-2.6.16-1-xen-k7 - Linux kernel 2.6.16 image on AMD K7 machines



But


After the grub bootpromt grub is boot in xen but nearly 10 secounds later the bootpromt is arising again. Now I can see nothing after the bootpromt because it's no console there while booting dom0. I don't know why the bootprozess is interrupted and I cant see any hints because it is nothing to see.

What should I do?

I've had this problem once myself. All I could do was to compile another kernel.
What's the output of
Code:
uname -m
?

I thoght i686 is standing for intel prozessors???
What have you changed in your kernel?
Do you still have your config file?
I've use this:http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_xen3_debian_p3 to compile an new kernel. But make oldconfig and make menuconfig does'nt work:

Quote:
x:/usr/src/xen-3.0.2-2/linux-2.6.16.23-xen# make oldconfig
Makefile:439: /usr/src/xen-3.0.2-2/linux-2.6.16.23-xen/arch/xen/Makefile: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/xen-3.0.2-2/linux-2.6.16.23-xen/arch/xen/Makefile'. Stop.


Do you have a hint to get the seriell console showing something during the boot prozess?

Even I'm using software raid (raid1). Do you thing it could depence on it. Maybe xen does'nt support software raid.

Another prob while installing the linux-image-2.6.17-2-xen-k7 arrised. An script configured grubs menue.list during the installations prozess. After rebooting grub could'nt boot anything and even was'nt able to show the bootmenu.

Now I can't boot anyting even not the usual kernel. The only way to boot is booting external. Grub is installed on both raid devices and both raid devices are working well. I've no idea how I can fix that.

The Xen tutorial was written for Xen 3.0.1, not 3.0.2. Things have changed in 3.0.2...
