How do you rebuild the kernel on a Debian 3.1 system? I'm running on an AMD Turion ML-32 64-bit processor. I'm trying to hibernate my system, but it complains because there is no support for ACPI.

Also, how do you install XFree86-DRI? I've got a "SiS M760GX integrated 3D graphics accelerator". 3D graphics do work, but not very fast. FGFS runs at about .2 FPS.

Thanks.

I can't help you with rebuilding your kernel, but these links may help you install your 3D drivers:

Mesa3D install: http://www.mesa3d.org/install.html
DRI install: http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/Building

You could probably skip the hassle of DRI drivers if you card vendor already issues DRI-enabled Linux drivers.

Rebuilding the kernel is pretty easy actually....
the process is basically this...
download a kernel
untar it
cd into that directory
now, 'make menuconfig' #this is where you configure your kernel DO NOT SKIP
next, 'make'
then, 'make install'
and then copy the kernel image to the corect directory

for details go to

DO NOT FORGET TO RECONFIGURE YOUR BOOT LOADER
