The box is dual boot Dell Inspiron 3800 and I needed to have ntfs module
(why ohhh why you don't include it with the regular kernel, I always have
to compile my own kernel to have it on every desktop i have), so I've
decided to compile my own kernel
After unpacking, compiling, installing the kernel from your rpm, i
discovered that pcmcia part (modules) wasn't installed, so I went to
/usr/src/linux-2.2.16/pcmcia-cs-3.1.19, did "make clean", make config, make
install. Still no pcmcia in /lib/modules/linux-2.2.16-mine.
Then after downloading pcmcia-3.1.20 and doing make config I've discovered
that config.mk and config.out are different from the ones in pcmcia-3.1.19.
Because your pcmcia's has PREFIX=/var/tmp/kernel-linux...... (smth like
that) in the config.mk and config.out, it never got copied into
/lib/modules/lernel-2.2.16-mine and was still left intact in the
So after deleting PREFIX=/var/.. from config.out and config.mk the problem
went away and was installed successfully
Please fix it and put ntfs module with write support into the regular
kernel (you even have minix and OS/2 fs support, but no ntfs) or tell me
why you don't want it to be in the regular kernel rpm.
We don't believe the kernel NTFS is a supportable option. Nor does it work with
(Left open because the pcmcia thing does look like a bug)
NTFS write is known to corrupt and destroy filesystems, and is hence not
The PCMCIA problem: the path in the config files is correct if you attempt to
build a new
kernel RPM with PCMCIA. Since you are attempting to build it "non-RPM", the path
