When I do kernel switcher and it come to my wireless card this come up:
## SPM: setup phase
* Checking for suitable kernel configuration options...
* CONFIG_B43: should not be set. But it is.
* CONFIG_SSB: should not be set. But it is.
* CONFIG_MAC80211: should not be set. But it is.
* Please check to make sure these options are set correctly.
* Failure to do so may cause unexpected problems

What is this and what can I do about it?

Does kernel switcher run to completion, though? If it does, have the following two problems you reported been resolved, or are you still experiencing them?

Does your computer still hang after you install linux-sabayon-3.6-r3 using kernel switcher and follow the remainder of the procedure I listed in my previous post?

Do you still end up with a black screen after you install linux-sabayon-3.6-r3 using kernel switcher and follow the remainder of the procedure I listed in my previous post?

Yes it does, but if I boot in to Kernel 3.5.0 everything is just fine.

If you can, boot the linux-sabayon-3.6-r3 kernel and, when it stabilises and you see a blank screen, press Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get to the TTY1 console, log in a root user, and use following commands to redirect the output to the file temp<nn>.txt in your home directory. Then boot the linux-sabayon-3.5-r7 kernel and past the contents of those files here:

Code: Select all
uname -a > /home/amandus/temp01.txt
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf > /home/amandus/temp02.txt
cat /var/log/messages | grep -i --text error > /home/amandus/temp03.txt
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep II > /home/amandus/temp04.txt
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep WW > /home/amandus/temp05.txt
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE > /home/amandus/temp06.txt
ls -la /etc/X11/xorg.d/* > /home/amandus/temp07.txt
eselect opengl list > /home/amandus/temp08.txt
eselect opencl list > /home/amandus/temp09.txt
eselect kernel list > /home/amandus/temp10.txt
equo search ati-drivers > /home/amandus/temp11.txt
equo search ati-userspace > /home/amandus/temp12.txt
equo search xf86-video-ati > /home/amandus/temp13.txt
cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg > /home/amandus/temp14.txt
cat /etc/conf.d/modules > /home/amandus/temp15.txt
lsmod > /home/amandus/temp16.txt
lspci > /home/amandus/temp17.txt

But if you cannot get to a VT when you boot the linux-sabayon-3.6-r3 kernel, boot the linux-sabayon-3.5-r7 kernel and paste here the output of all the above commands anyway.

I´m satisfy with kernel linux-sabayon-3.5-r7 kernel I did a reinstallation so I do not want to try again, when I´m not sure how to do this upgrade. Thanks

If you have a more recent ATI/AMD video card, you might remove x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati (the opensource driver) before installing the ati-drivers package. There's a conflict which may be the cause of your issues (I have a recent 7750 ATI video card and had same crash/halt problem). Any kernel > 3.5 will have the same problem.

Another option is to place "radeon" in the modules blacklist file in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf which should also do the trick. It's a result (nvidia has done the same thing) ATI ceasing support of older cards with the closed source binary blob.

Good luck!

I too encountered this update issue. I was using Kernel 3.5, and i see a notice "Important AMD GPU related changes in Linux Kernel 3.6+", but i didn't follow it. I am using Interl I3-2330, and i thought that the driver i was using is Intel's driver.
