Kernel panic while trying to play video

Hi. I tried compile kernel 4.19.133 myself with some CONFIG modifications and kernel works fine too. However, I have found that when transferring data over a network, the data counter (visible via ifconfig eth0) is reset every 4 GB. I don't know if it's a kernel, computer or NetworkManager error. I ...

Kernel panic while trying to play video

Thank you for the kernel. The video can be played without crashing the system. There are no error messages in syslog and dmesg. CPU usage is within the expected limits. Now I will try to use this kernel. Thanks and what <"All patches" patching was done> really mean? Is it some Porteus patches for th...

Thank you for the kernel. However system is now slow, when playing video and Xorg take a lot of CPU %. In syslog are a lot of similar error messages: Jul 15 12:17:41 porteus kernel: [ 76.773860] WARN_ON(!(atomic_read(&old->bits) & frontbuffer_bits)) Jul 15 12:17:41 porteus kernel: [ 76.773903] WARNI...

Kernel panic while trying to play video

So with custom compiled kernel 4.9.192-porteus is possible to play video without crash, but in syslog is still repeating this message while playing video: Jul 15 10:16:15 porteus kernel: [ 131.836425] WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 1319 at drivers/gpu/drm/drm_gem.c:854 0xc12f3bfb Jul 15 10:16:15 porteus kerne...

Kernel panic while trying to play video

Thanks for reply. Try Porteus 4 is planned. When trying to use the kernel parameter 'nomodeset', the video can be opened without crashing the system, but the image is not displayed, only the sound is playing. lspci -v output: 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82865G/PE/P DRAM Controller/Host-Hu...

I ended up patching the kernel by hand and was able to get a combination that worked. I found the best way was to apply the minimum number of patches needed to work. I also used only the base patches, nothing else.

By hand do you mean manually edit c and h kernel files (add patch diffs)?

Problem with activating XZM in changes directory

So, in dmesg is too:

Code: Select all

[83378.170165] aufs au_warn_loopback:123:loop96[18623]: you may want to try another patch 
for loopback file on ext4(0xef53) branch
For kernel compilation I used mkKernel-20-02-10-xz-noarch.xzm and proceed with default options without any user patches.

Problem with activating XZM in changes directory

Hi all. I have this problem: When I use kernel from distribution iso (4.9.0 from 3.2.2 version and 4.16.3 from 4.0 version), I can activate XZMs which is located anywhere. If I compile custom kernel (eg. 4.9.162 and 4.9.216) using mkKernel, then I can activate only XZMs which is located out of AUFS ...

init=/bin/bash resistance?

Hi. I tried to find out if bootchartd (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bootchart) works in Porteus. It looks like it works, but the bootchard is started using init=/sbin/bootchartd . The system starts normally. And now my findings. If I boot with init=/bin/bash parameter, the terminal (bash) do...
