Solved smxi and kernel 4.0

for me the nice little tool  smxi fails on kernel 4.0 in usr.local/bin/sm-lib-kernel section on line 103 at character 56     I doubt that it will be a problem for long. 

For me - 4 kernels was too many, and when I went to prune one out via smxi it failed.  Solution for me was to reboot with older kernel and take out  the earlier 3.19 siduction kernel. 

I will mark this as solved soon. 

No other problems noted for me with kernel 4.0  YMMV

Re: Solved smxi and kernel 4.0

Where does smxi try to install it from? I've been checking experimental and the mailing lists and I haven't seen 4.0 as being marked accepted there yet.

Re: Solved smxi and kernel 4.0

I'm using 4.0 in my Arch [testing] system and it seems fine -- some improvements in processor overhead and memory usage.

You can compile your own very easily by using the config for your current kernel as a base; here is a nice guide:

Re: Solved smxi and kernel 4.0

^ that is a good guide and I will confirm it works with Slackware as well as Arch. I use this for Debian though -

compile a kernel for debian

You need a couple non-default packages:

sudo apt-get install kernel-package fakeroot build-essential

builds debian packages you can install with dpkg and remove with apt.

I just built kernel 4.0 for two systems with it, so the method is not deprecated.

Re: Solved smxi and kernel 4.0

Source for my kernel is

Siduction    4.0.0-towo.1-siduction-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT siduction 4.0-1 (2015-04-13) x86_64 GNU/Linux

I keep finding out more stuff about this version of Sid (Siduction) that I really like.  I have discovered Siduction actually has a program called kernel-remover so my most common usage of smxi is now moot.  kernel-remover is not present in a plain debian testing   

Of course things will get back to being crazy in Sid soon enough and I might get bit in the butt by Sid.  Still have the main box and hardrive on #! Will have to figure out something in the future, but it is stable still.

Re: Solved smxi and kernel 4.0

Get "apt-listbugs" in SID and when you see a critical bug put it on hold for a while then unhold it and try again - if still with a critical put it back on hold it again.

## SID = dist-upgrade for Stable = upgrade ##
alias ups='echo "alias ups = sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade --no-install-recommends" ; sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade --no-install-recommends'
alias sups='echo "alias sups = sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade --no-install-recommends --simulate" ; sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade --no-install-recommends --simulate'
### HOLD UNHOLD AUTO MANUAL ###
alias hld='echo "alias hld = sudo apt-mark hold app_name app_name" ; sudo apt-mark hold'
alias unhld='echo "alias unhld = sudo apt-mark unhold app_name app_name" ; sudo apt-mark unhold'
alias auto='echo "sudo apt-mark auto app_name app_name" ; sudo apt-mark auto'
alias manu='echo "sudo apt-mark manual app_name app_name" ; sudo apt-mark manual'
