[linrad] Svgalib 1.9.20 ; Re: [linrad] Re: SVGALIB 2.9.19 under Debian
SuSE/Gentoo/Knoppix: I have tried Linrad-installs under earlier
versions of these distributions during the last couple of years.
Yesterday I installed Debian-base with the rc3-installer through
the network, and it found the PCI-HomePNA-card automatically. The
(later) downloaded svgalib-bin package was referred to as 1.4.3-21
Next I will expand functionality by trying a linrad 01.33 install.
Last week I saw that there was a new svgalib 1.9.20 available.
So far I have seen posts only referring to 1.9.19 and earlier.
I have had my biggest battles with the 1.9.17 - 1.9.19 helper
modules, and indeed I have never succeeded under SuSE/Knoppix.
If I remember correctly Gentoo had a distro-matched 1.9.17-r2
svgalib package and it worked right away in Gentoo 2004.x
This is probably my first posting on the 'Linrad' list, but
I have seen most of the posts of the last few years. I have
a Delta-44 card as a new expansion, so I may put more serious
effort into the Linrad hardware from now on. Good luck to all!

I cannot compile svgalib 2.9.19 under Debian.
When I start the "make install" I get an error.
The command line is : make -C /lib/modules/18.104.22.168-386/build SUBDIRS=/usr/...
The sad news is that I have no folder 'build' in
the /lib/modules/22.214.171.124-386 folder.
Have I forgotten a package during Debian installation ???
Or should I try re-install Debian with a 2.4 kernel ?
Any idea welcome !
Well, I did not have that problem cause I use a home compiled kernel ;-)
The buid directory is indeed a simbolic link to the kernel source tree:
build -> /usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.6
As you do not have the source installed, you can not have that link.
In Debian, you have the following packages:
Before trying to install a custom kernel, install the kernel-headers
package and see if you can compile svgalib (I am not sure).
#apt-get install kernel-headers-2.6.8-2-386
Some useful searching tips:
The "apt-cache" program is very useful for searching packages.
"apt-cache search pattern" , searches for pattern in the package database:
For example, in my system:
#apt-cache search kernel-headers-2.6
kernel-headers-2.6-386 - Linux kernel headers 2.6 on 386
kernel-headers-2.6-686 - Linux kernel headers 2.6 on PPro/Celeron/PII/PIII/P4

This command, is useful to know what a package has:
"apt-cache show package_name"
ea1abz@debian-remix:~$ apt-cache show kernel-image-2.6.8-2-386
Maintainer: Debian kernel team <debian-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Provides: kernel-image, kernel-image-2.6
Depends: initrd-tools (>= 0.1.63), coreutils | fileutils (>= 4.0),
module-init-tools (>= 0.9.13)
Suggests: lilo (>= 19.1) | grub, fdutils, kernel-doc-2.6.8 |
Conflicts: hotplug (<< 0.0.20040105-1)
Description: Linux kernel image for version 2.6.8 on 386.
This package contains the Linux kernel image for version 2.6.8 on
the corresponding System.map file, and the modules built by the packager.
It also contains scripts that try to ensure that the system is not left in
a unbootable state after an update.
If you wish to update a bootdisk, or to use a bootloader to make
installing and using the image easier, we suggest you install the latest
fdutils (for formatting a floppy to be used as boot disk), and LILO, for a
powerful bootloader. Of course, both these are optional.
Kernel image packages are generally produced using kernel-package,
and it is suggested that you install that package if you wish to
create a custom kernel from the sources.
So, tell us the result.
We'll keep in touch.
