    Hey

    I'm having some problems, because I'm going to USA soon, and I'm going to have a mobile phone connected to my mobile phone, while I'm overthere, so I can send smses to my friends and so on
    I have a Nokia 6230i, I will like to have connected to my computer
    Otherwise I'm searching for a precompiled kernel, where usb_serial.h is included

    I don't know where you can find such a kernel... Maybe it's easier to compile your own one?

    I have given it a try, but it wasn't successful
    I had a config-file, but it's failing everytime, so if someone can compile it for me, I will be very happy

    Can you copy any output why it is failing and what you are doing stepy by step maybe it is easier to help then...

    Is it failing while compiling or on reboot?

    Shall I also copy the whole config file in here or?

    It's failing on compiling

    Now I had compiled it with just this errors, who are written in the zipped log-file, I had attached.
    Now I can't remember, what I have to do, and the howto, I had followed isn't avaible more
    I had compiled the kernel with this commando:
    Code:
    make-kpkg --revision=custom.1.0 --initrd --rootcmd fakeroot binary-arch
    Shall I just use this commandoes:
    Code:
    dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.17.11_custom.1.0_i386.deb linux-headers-2.6.17.11_custom.1.0_i386.deb
    And then just reboot or what?

    Ah I thought of compiling the "real" source from kernel.org with "patching" or adding the dku2 sources....

    It was also my meaning, but I couldn't find out of how to do that, so I will make the DKU-2 driver as a module (as described on the http://www.gnokii.org/docs.shtml#dku2) when I can't find out of the other thing

    Well I would use this:

    For the first part I would download the actual kernel image from kernel.org,
    unzip it in e.g. /usr/local/src
    cd into the kernel dir
    if you already have a kernel config for that kernel tree (eihter 2.4 or 2.6) copy it into that dir
    run "make menuconfig" and change things which you need or do not need.
    then run the above steps till make (excluding make) and run
    "make bzImage modules modules_install"

    then follow the rest.

    at least do

    cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-2.X.XX.X
    cp System.map /boot/System.map-2.X.XX.X
    cp .config /boot/.config-2.X.XX.X

    the rest depends now on your bootloader config if it is lilo or grub...

    I have done that, but I had used /usr/src instead

    Wouldn't it mean, that I have to compile the kernel first to see, if
    Shouldn't I have installed the kernel first (the .deb-files)? I'm using grub

    Well the .deb are prceompiled packages I thought...
    It's now matter how you first got your kernel, if you take the one coming with debian or compile one for your self...

    I thought /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build is either a symlink, but did not check that....

    Don't you have a messenger? It's much easier in that way, I think, because I'm so confused

    I will do so
    Now I had download and extracted 'linux-2.6.17.13.tar.bz2'
    What shall I do now?

    Shall I compile the kernel and then edit the kernel again or what do I have to do :confused:

    Yes, but I thought, I should do something, before I had to configure the kernel

    No, you must compile a new kernel, and when you run
    Code:
    make menuconfig
    you must select all kernel modules you need.

    Does that mean, I have to compile the kernel first or what?

    It's easy, but when I run the command below, it says, that there aren't no rules to create the bzImage
    That's what I have done until now
