Some general problems

some PCMCIA WLAN cards don't work out of the box

  • Deprecated pcmcia-cs was removed starting with grml 0.6. Now pcmcia­utils is state-of-the-art. Some kernel drivers (like for example PCMCIA WLAN cards) are not autoloaded by default anymore. They should work anyway by loading the module manually. Run for example 'hwinfo –netcard' to figure out which network module has to be loaded. (Some more information regarding the device is available via for example 'udevinfo -a -p /sys/class/net/eth0/'). [mika]


  • Due to several changes in the bluetooth corner the bt-net scripts (grml-btnet, grml-btnets, grml-btnetc) don't work yet. An updated package will be available via the grml-repository as soon as the scripts are working again. [mika]


  • installation on software raid devices does not work as the /dev/md* devices are not listed in the partition selection dialog due to use of fdisk instead of /proc/partitions (reported by Gregor Perner), please upgrade to grml2hd >=0.9.2 which fixes the issue. [mika]


  • running rebuildfstab (which happens automatically by default during booting sequence) creates tmp-files in /tmp/ which aren't removed automatically anymore then (unless you reboot of course). It is just a cosmetic problem but if you want to fix it just upgrade to grml-rebuildfstab >=0.3-20. [mika]

rt2x00 modules

  • To avoid conflicts with the other rt2x00-drivers the package rt2x00 (which includes beta-version drivers) is not installed by default. If you want to use the kernel modules rt2400pci, rt2500pci, rt2500usb, rt61pci and/or rt73usb please install the package manually running 'dpkg -i /usr/src/rt2*.deb'. [mika]
