Install Guide

There is a german install guide here.

In short:

  • hardy kernel crashes into busybox, so you have to
  • dowload latest or 2.6.26-rc4 (tested) kernel quellcode
  • first install minimal gutsy (network is broken)
  • get my .config from

  • compile und install kernel
    • mkdir ~/kernel && cd ~/kernel

    • cp /media/stick/linux- .
    • /media/stick/.config .
    • tar xjf linux- && cd linux-

    • cp ../.config .
    • make -j2 && sudo make install && make modules_install

  • change /boot/grub/menu.lst (don't use UUID but root=/dev/sdaX resume=/dev/sdaY ro vga=791) sdaX is your root and sdaY is your swap partition
  • deactivate /usr/sbin/update-grub (include exit 0 at the top)
  • reboot
  • now you have working ethernet, upgrade to hardy
  • reboot
  • compile und install the 2.6.26-rc4 kernel again (make mrproper && cp ../.config .) and don't delete this kernel directory!

  • optional make a sym-link in /lib/firmware/ to allow external devices load firmware (ln -s 2.6.24-17-generic uname -r)


  • svn checkout svn:// uvc-trunk
  • cd uvc-trunk
  • make
  • sudo cp uvcvideo.ko /lib/modules/<kernelname> ( = uname -r )

  • sudo depmod
  • sudo modprobe uvcvideo
  • sudo aptitude install luvcview
  • luvcview -s 640x480 -f yuv


Not supported soft modem.


The latest vanilla kernel fixes all bugs (reported by LaptopTestingTeam/ToshibaSatelliteL40-14N) The only thing still not working is the built-in USB Realtek RTL8187B WLAN adapter.
