  ubuntu 18.04 i5 5200U not booting
Posted by: gabboman - 20-06-2018, 08:07 AM - Forum: Bug Report - Replies (3)

When I try to boot xanmod on my laptop it reboots to grub.

How could I get some logs to figure out what's happening?

"The European Union is introducing some of the strictest online privacy rules in the world. The changes aim to give internet users more control over their information, but the long-term effects of the new law won’t be known for years."

Big Grin Xanmod Newbie
Posted by: wisemagic - 08-06-2018, 05:57 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

Hello to all !

I've recently come across the Xanmod Kernel and wanted to give it a try.
I use Debian. Left Windows shortly after the release of XP. ( Never looked )

I have been compiling my kernels for about  3 1/2 years now. I use the Zen kernel variation (4.17.0 ).

After a successful compile of Xanmod kernel, I fail to boot. I really haven't put much effort or time into the problem.

Am wondering what the major difference between these 2 are. I made no changes to the .config

I also opt to using xconfig rather than menuconfig simply because it's easier to work with. I made no changes.
Actually didn't even run it.

I'm going to be tinkering with this over the weekend, and just wondered if anyone might know if the scheduler could be the problem.
I'll post results in a few days.

Some Background......

My kernel is stripped down pretty much to the hardware I have. No pcmcia, isdn, nouveau driver ( or any of the video driver support ), none of the tons of laptop support or wireless/network support. I have 1 wireless and 1 ethernet, so I don't need the extra stuff, that will never get used.

This is a rough/quick link to my system.
In 2011 I spent big on an X79 system. 2100.00 The ASUS motherboard failed 4 months ago. I vowed not to spend like that again, so the cheapie China bundle was my choice, and I'm quite pleased. Performance was never an issue. I had been running Intel 6 Core I7-3930K. The Xeon E5-2690 is right along the same line. Added a Corsair H60 Liquid Cooler, and an Nvidia 960 graphics card, & with the 2 SSD's the box is virtually silent with temps at around 100 degrees.

Thanks  Smile

Can i make a suggestion to add enable_additional_cpu_optimizations_for_gcc_v8.1+_kernel_v4.13+.patch from Kernel patch for those of us that likes to compile ourselves? Smile

Works as-is with one -1 offset, so easily implemented for 4.17.

  cpufreq folder is missing?
Posted by: Pervin11111 - 25-05-2018, 07:17 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

Hello everyone, new to Xanmod forum, great community, love the information consuming here so far, thank you very much to developers, God bless you all!!!

My cpufreq folder is missing for some reason, was trying to set the governor to "performance", but it's not there for some reason. 

"Linux ubuntu 4.16.10-xanmod10 #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Apr 18 22:03:57 -03 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux"

I have already cpufreq-set utility installed and running in headless Ubuntu 18.04 server. I have 3 Cores assigned Xeon E3-1230 V5 to my Ubuntu Server in VM in Qemu/KVM hypervisor in Unraid/Slackware OS. Is it KVM/QEMU related limitations to avoid host CPU abuse by the guest OS?

I do apologize if my question has been posted before, still learning the forum layout and search functions.

Thank you!!!

  zfs support
Posted by: untoreh - 17-04-2018, 01:27 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Hello, how do you boot natively on zfs with the xanmod kernel? I installed zfs-dkms (ubuntu) which appears to rebuild the initiramfs to include the zfs but when I try to boot it still doesn't find the zfs module, is there some additional configuration needed or do I simply have to build the kernel myself to include zfs support without the module?
