camorri Posted November 11, 2010 Report Share Posted November 11, 2010 I have a APC UPS ES750. When I plug in the USB cable to my Mandirva 10.1 system a device never gets created in /dev for the ups. See this link for more details on the problem. I have determined that I have confirmed CONFIG_DYNAMIC_USB_MIRRORS is turned on in stock kernels, at least the ones I have installed. I want to know if it possible to recompile a stock kernel, and turn off CONFIG_DYNAMIC_USB_MIRRORS. I have figured out how to edit kernel source, and change this option. I am not at all sure if the Nvidia drivers, and drivers for Virtual Box will load into a reconfigured kernel. Your thoughts on how to proceed? Would I be better off getting the latest kernel source, and compiling it? If I go that route, I have very little experience, so I have no idea how to handle Nvidia or V-box stuff. I know if I get the latest source, the patching Mandriva does would be gone, and it would have an impact on the built in tools, not sure what else.
