I was getting the partial upgrade, can't guess meta package error. So, I did a fresh install of Beta 3, was still getting the error. I then follewed this thread to success. Here is a list of my steps. $ sudo apt-get install kernel-package $ sudo cp /usr/share/doc/kernel-package/examples/sample.kernel-img.conf /etc/kernel-img.conf $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 I didn't get the Sub-process error. I copied my backup back to /etc. $ sudo cp kernel-img.conf /etc/kernel-img.conf $ sudo apt-get upgrade $ sudo update-grub brian@64studio:~$ dpkg -l |grep 2.6.29 ii linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 2.6.29-8 Linux 2.6.29 image on PPro/Celeron/PII/PIII/ ii linux-libc-dev 2.6.29-8 Linux support headers for userspace developm

Hi Guido, From the other threads we've linked I think we're just about ready for more testing, If you've installed 2.6.26 RT kernel as a second kernel option then you're certainly making great progress. Here's where I'm up to: The testing kernel now moves to version 2.6.29-5. $ dpkg -l |grep 2.6.29 ii linux-doc-2.6.29 2.6.29-5 ii linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 2.6.29-5 ii linux-kbuild-2.6.29 2.6.29-1~hardy1 ii linux-libc-dev 2.6.29-5 ii linux-manual-2.6.29 2.6.29-5 ii linux-rt 2.6.29-5 ii linux-support-2.6.29-1 2.6.29-5 Kernel Notes: config2629-2 (beta3 default config) config2629-5-default (testing default config) $ sdiff --suppress-common-lines config2629-2 config2629-5-default > sdiff-2629-2-5-def-diffs sdiff-2629-2-5-def-diffs file in ~/ ediff shows 93 diffs between 2.6.29-2 and 2.6.29-5 kernel configs. More to follow... Cheers! Dave.

I'm on line too

Hi dave I just have red your last post. So you think it's better make a clean install of distro with new sound card already installed into system . First I solve video card problem , maybe tomorrow if a basic model gefroce 9500 or 9600 max price 100€ , I'm not a gamer, and then install new sound card in pc and after make clean install. Only after do this I can think qhat do with kernel.ùIs it right ? bye Guido

Hi Guido, Sad to hear about the video card problems, hope you get fixed up soon. Call me old fashioned but I don't think you'll get a true idea of the new sound card performance until you have a clean install with the cards being detected by the new install. I could be wrong but I think old config files laying around are problems waiting to happen. Some new schools state that you don't have to be reinstalling all the time. I find that it doesn't take long to do, and if you've got everything backed up I don't see a problem. I actually enjoy installing and setting up the system, which is a good job because my 64studio testing here sees many reinstalls. The testing of the (2.6.29-2) upgrade to (2.6.29-4) continues here. The beta3 default kernel (2.6.29-2) is one of the best kernels I've used and you can find very positive testing reports in this thread where the kernel has been put through its paces good style by Alex: 64studio 3.0 observations: The kernel upgrade bug is a continuation from the beta2 install only now I'm starting to understand a bit more about the problems involved. $ sudo find / -name 'sample.kernel-img.conf*' /usr/share/doc/kernel-package/examples/sample.kernel-img.conf You need to have *kernel-package* installed to access *sample.kernel-img.conf* $ sudo apt-get install kernel-package Now when ready we can use: $ sudo cp /usr/share/doc/kernel-package/examples/sample.kernel-img.conf /etc/kernel-img.conf Or a variation. Here's a copy of sample.kernel-img.conf If you don't have this package installed I've put the contents below so you can create the fix yourself. The contents of *kernel-img-conf-fix*. First Notes. update-grub is missing from the fix version so we'll run that after the kernel is upgraded. You don't have the fix file yet so we'll create it now. run: $ gedit kernel-img-conf-fix Copy the 11 details below into the file and save it link_in_boot = NO do_symlink = Yes no_symlink = No reverse_symlink = NO image_dest = / \#move_image = NO \#clobber_modules = NO do_boot_enable = Yes. do_bootfloppy = YES do_bootloader = YES relative_links = NO Then run: $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 You will get: E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) *You should have a backup of the default.conf if you've followed the post above 64studio 3.0 beta3 (PC2 nVidia snd_ice1712)* You can check with: $ h cp $ sudo cp kernel-img-conf-fix /etc/kernel-img.conf $ sudo apt-get upgrade (The kernel now completes installing) $ sudo update-grub $ h dpkg $ dpkg -l |grep 2.6.29 ii linux-image-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 2.6.29-4 ii linux-libc-dev 2.6.29-4 The new testing kernel is installed. (2.6.29-4)... On one of the test-installs I carried on to try and install the nVidia binary driver. It failed, so even though the fix sees the kernel install ok, the source and headers don't play nice with the new kernel *this could be related to the "fix" itself, and needs more testing*. The next installable 64studio image will be fine with the nvidia install but unless Quentin comes up with a fix with his backport packages don't upgrade the kernel if you have nvidia binary drivers already installed. Unless you're a tester, in which case your reports will be valuable to kernel testing. From Quentins HowTo linux-kbuild-2.6.29 - backport your own NOW *nVidia testers* will need the above howto to install source & headers. $ cp /boot/config-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686 backup-64studio30b3/**config-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686-4** Now I have two sets of config files for comparison: kernel-img.conf (2.6.29-2) kernel-img-conf-fix (2.6.29-4) & the kernel config (for "make") config-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686-2 config-2.6.29-1-multimedia-686-4 Ediff or sdiff shows me 90 changes between the kernel config files but I'm not sure if the "fix" is giving me a true comparison here. If any users have queries e.g. firewire, network cards, please post your queries and I'll check the config of the new kernel to see if the changes have been made for your hardware. Cheers! Dave.

video card crash

Hi Dave and all other First Happy Easter: my video card Asus 8600 GT silent unforfunately suddenly crashed then at this time it's impossible continue to modify system. Video card is not recognized by bios with audio advise from motherboard . I'm very unterested to your last suggests but I can't try them. I'm very disappointed for this , video card is just out of warranty and I had modify it by substitution of his heat sink . Tomorrow all shop are close so I take time to try to solve problem, but if I can't on Tuesday I msut buy another video card. About new audio card I can tell only that is was recognized by both OS xp and 64 studio , but it's noy this cause of accident.. Sorry I'll continue to fllow this thread by my small Asus eeepc with ubuntu8.10. I hope see you later with good news. bye Guido

Create other projects in the software you use to use as benchmarks. e.g. Hydrogen, Rosegarden. Make notes of how your new Sound card works with the present kernel. Cheers! Dave.
