    For those of you running woody, this is a quick warning that the gcc in unstable does not compile kernel 2.4-test11 corectly. You have been warned.

    2.4.0-test11 locked up starting X 4.01 everytime after compiling under woody. Text mode operation appeared OK. I tried two differenent video cards, Voodoo3 & G400. I also tried the VESA and VGA drivers from dexter. The machine was not completely hung because I could launch a delayed shutdown script before running startx.

    Does anyone know a good How-To on debugging? I need to learn how to determine if a problem is 3rd party like this one or my own creation.

    I run woody with the current XFree debs and 2.4.0-test11 and a G400.
    No problems here. I used dexter to configure X. It worked perfectly.

    Do not use Dexter, X4 locked up for me too.
    I am running Woody with 2.4.0-test11, and Xfree 4.01
    with an ATI agp card, with very little problems.
    Try using XF86Config, you may have to tweak the mouse
    options a little.

    Uhm sorry about the lack of verbosity. This post was based on what someone put in #debian’s topic, at the time of the post. It is probably of little value now.

    mmm I compiled 2.4-test11 the other day on my woody box to get hpt66 support.
    Everything seems to be working fine. What does it not compile correctly?
    My gcc is version 2.95.2.

    Perhaps a few details would be nice. How does it not complile correctly? Your post implies that it _does_ compile, so if there is some subtly that occurs post-compilation it may not effect everyone. If it doesn’t compile, please confirm.

    I’m about to compile it, and would like to know.

    I am using gcc version 2.95.2 20000220 (Debian GNU/Linux) and compiled Linux 2.4-test-11 with no problems at all.

    However, I sent in a bug report last night after test-11 munged a FAT partition I had. I got frequent soft-lockups while trying to fix that partition. After a lot of messing about, I established that it was all test-11’s fault (it worked fine in 2.2.14 and 2.4-test10).

    I am not entirely sure what went wrong, but I’m not very willing to go back and try and find out. So, it is possible that I was a victim of this gcc/test-11 bug.

    okay, but do you mean the gcc272 package, or gcc 2.95.2?

    From what i heard from the kernel mailing list there would be problems with the old one. Normally if you install both packages, it compiles the kernel with 272… so i guess that means uninstalling gcc272, or adjusting the makefile. What about 2.2 kernels?

    Question: did anyone try 2.4 in debian? What problems are there? Esp. wrt devfs: is one forced to use the devfs daemon with debian?

    I’m running 2.4.0test11 atm, compiles with the latest woody gcc package. (2.95.2) It runs very well.. I’m using devfs, but still run the devfsd so that my programs don’t barf at me when they are looking for the old device files. If I was willing to put up with specifying the device every time I started up these progreams, I wouldn’t need to use devfsd, and didn’t for a while.

    I’m running 2.4-test10 with no problems….and didn’t have to do anything extraordanary to get it to run…just compiled it and tossed it into boot…modified lilo….the usual.

    It does not appear that I am running a devfs daemon.
