I have compiled the Kernel on my
64-bit Debian XPS Studio 1340 Dell system.
srikanth@debian:~ - 05:40:52 PM - $ uname -a Linux debian 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Thu Mar 22 17:26:33 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Kernel version that I have used and compiled from kernel.org is
I have nvidia installed on old kernel. I got the old config and I used the same config to compile the new kernel.
Everything went well and I got two debian packages ( image and headers ) which I have installed on my system.
When I select the new kernel on the boot menu and I go into it, the X server is not starting up possibly because I have to "
rebuild" ( not sure how to do that ) according to this link:
- Can you suggest
how to do the rebuild on nvidia module so that I can start x( without seeing any blank screen or error saying nvidia module is missing ) ?
