Fedora :: Compile A Vanilla Kernel On The Easy/lazy Way?

Apr 29, 2010

I thought I would give some instructions on how I compile my kernels. My long-time windows user parts trader recently asked me how to compile a kernel on Fedora. He was confused with all the tutorials requiring you to build an RPM, so I showed him how I do it, the standard/easy/lazy way. Before I start, here are a couple things I assume. I assume you are a Fedora user and that you are NOT in text mode, but in GNOME. I also assume you realize that this can take up to SIX HOURS on an old Pentium 3 1.3Ghz. Remember that some proprietary drivers as well as some free ones are not included in the kernel, so make sure you don't delete your existing one.

First get the dependencies you need.
su -c "yum -y install gcc ncurses-devel"

Next get the kernel source. I use as an example. To download it, click here.Extract it by right-clicking on the file and then choosing extract here. This will take about five minutes. Now open a terminal, become root, and cd to the directory linux- It is important to cd here and not to the kernel directory inside of there, even though make has an extra variable that specifies there.

Now we need to configure the kernel before we build it with make O=kernel menuconfig. It will take a couple minutes to set up, then you will be presented with a cheap psuedo-gui in your terminal. Just select exit and yes to save your config. You usually don't need to change anything here.

Ready to compile and install? Remember this can take up to six hours, and your machine may become VERY slow. It is not recommended that you attempt to use your machine with this in progress. OK then. As root, in the same directory, type:

make O=kernel && make O=kernel modules_install install. This will compile the kernel and install the kernel and it's modules. Done? Now change the kernel and initrd in your bootloader to match the new kernel. If you ever want to reuse the same source code folder, use make mrproper to clean things up and build it again.

Fedora :: Compiling A Vanilla Kernel?

Apr 9, 2010

I am trying to compile a vanilla kernel that I got from git in a VirtualBox VM running Fedora 12. With RHEL (albeit on real hardware, not a VM), I am able to do a make; make modules_install; make install and simply able to boot up the kernel. The make install step, in particular, creates the initrd using /sbin/installkernel, which also updates the grub configuration.

Under Fedora 12, my new kernel does not boot. I see no messages on the screen, not even if I change the boot command line to remove quiet bootup. I see disk usage on the VM and the CPU gets pegged at 100%. Strangely enough, if I change the initrd to refer to an existing, Fedora-provided kernel, I can boot my new kernel without any problems. I started with a Fedora kernel config and used it to generate the config for my new 2.6.33 kernel, so it couldn't be the case that I missed something in the config either.

Does anybody have an idea about what could be going on? Is there some specific patch that Fedora kernels use that are essential for booting up?

Also, the guest Fedora OS is 64-bit, if that is relevant.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Boot From A Vanilla Kernel Without Initrd?

Oct 17, 2010

I've downloaded 2.6.36-rc8 vanilla kernel, then I copied .config file from my current working kernel, then I've configured, compiled and installed kernel like this:

make gconfig
make -j4 all (or make all)
make modules_all
make install
The last command edits my grub.conf file and writes this:

I checked my .config and ACPI, and File Systems are built into kernel and not loaded as modules... And, I have LVM but my /boot partition isn't in it, so I don't HAVE to use initrd, right? How can I boot from a vanilla kernel without initrd ?

Installation :: Install Vanilla Kernel To Other Ubuntu Server?

Jun 13, 2010

I am trying to compile a new vanilla kernel on to my Ubuntu server system which has been freshly installed with Ubuntu 10.04 server 32bits. As this will run on a VIA epia-px5000eg mainboard with USB stick I want compile this kernel on a different machine on which is also ubuntu 10.04 installed. Unfortunately currently I experience difficulties when I boot kernel 2.6.34; it says "Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown block" while if I load to original kernel that comes with Ubuntu 10.04 all works perfectly well. BTW reason I want to build a custom vanilla kernel is to trim down kernel to the necessary services I need as I am running a server that requires just the essentials. And it needs to support the VIA Epia CPU processor family ( C3, C7 or generic setting which is another hurdle which I won't discuss here ).

Hopefully one out there is able to guide me further as I type step by step what I executed. Thanks for your replies in advance:

Yet I hook up the VIA epia-px5000g with 2gb usb stick, a dvd drive and keyboard ( all usb ). Boot from CDrom and install a minimal system (<f4>) to usb stick. Partitioning part I set it to EXT4 and used full size thus no SWAP. Also mount option " noatime " has been set all to save writes to usb stick.
When the base system has been installed a user has been added, as well apt is being configured to install only security updates automatically. As services I want to run definitely openSSH-server so I can access remotely. Grub gets configured and system will be rebooted.

At this stage I configure the network interface to a static address so I do not need to check my router all the time which dhcp address Ubuntu is using if I want to access remotely.

Now the compile part starts, the ubuntu way. I log in to my other system and execute following commands accordingly code...

Red Hat :: Yum Install Kernel Doesn't Show In BUILD Or SPEC?

Mar 12, 2011

This is from Centos 5.5 so I apologize to anyone who may be offended.I installed my system and it came with kernel 2.6.18-194.el5. I installed the src.rpm of this kernel with rpm, patched, and built it. Then I did a yum -y install kernel.i686 which installed kernel-2.6.18-194.32.1.el5.centos.plus.src.rpm. Since this was a yum install, why doesn't this new kernel version show in the BUILD and SPEC directory?

Ubuntu :: Make-kpkg Strange Vanilla Kernel Build Errors: Found 60 Section Mismatch(es) ?

I'm getting the following build errors:

Debian Configuration :: Change The Driver File And Compile Custom Kernel

May 3, 2011

When I only change a driver file manually, for example /newkernel/linux-source-.6.32/drivers/gpu/drm/i915_drv.h, do I need to run "make config" or similar like "make menuconfig" or can I just skip? I mean these steps:

1.) apt-get install linux-source-2.6.32
2.) mkdir ~/newkernel/
3.) cp /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2 ~/newkernel/
4.) cd /newkernel/
5.) tar xjf linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2
6.) cd linux-source-2.6.32
7.) cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) ./.config yes "" | make oldconfig
8.) change the driver file /newkernel/linux-source-2.6.32/drivers/gpu/drm/i915_drv.h manually
8.) make-kpkg clean
9.) make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd --revision=custom.001 kernel_image kernel_headers
10.) dpkg -i *.deb

Is this way OK or do I miss something?

Fedora :: Use Rpmbuild To Compile Kernel Without Re-compiling Unchanged Module?
