General :: Kernel 3.0-ARCH VMWare Modules Wont Build

Aug 4, 2011

Since new kernel 3.0 update I cannot rebuild vmware modules


sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all Unable to initialize kernel module configuration

how to do that. Where do I insert the "CONFIG_LOCALVERSION" line.


Same here. This seems to be due to the kernel version being "3.0" instead of "3.0.0". Recompiling the Kernel (and all modules based on it, e.g. nvidia) with
CONFIG_LOCALVERSION=".0-ARCH" allows me to compile the modules and run VMware.

Fedora :: How To Build Kernel Headers Version Arch RPM

Oct 25, 2009

I'm building a Kernel on System A to use on System B. I've followed the walkthrough on [URL], and I get the following rpms:


What I don't get are any
Files. Don't I need them to rebuild modules and drivers on System B? Otherwise, how should I copy my new headers to System B? BTW, System B crashes when I try to build the Kernel on it, that's why I'm building debugger Kernels on System A.

Aug 4, 2011

System. fedora 15, fully updated Kernel 2.6.40-4.fc15.X86_64
64 bit. Gnome 3

The other day I installed VMware Player on the system when the Kernel was On running VMware player after installing the kernel-headers and gcc files the program ran fine (I did not try to install the VMware Tools). I also have not loaded the guess OS as yet.

toady I did and update in which the kernel was updated. I checked to ensure the Kernel-headers were also updated for the latest kernel.

After rebooting the machine the running kernel was then 2.6.40-4.fc15.x86_64. I then tried to start VMware Player. It indicated because the kernel was changed it needed to install new kernel modules, OK, It open the module screen and then crashed.

The log says it can not compile Vmmon which is the first module. it does not go any further.

Tried to installed a new copy of VMware Player over the old one but this only resulted in the same error messages.

Any ideas on how to fix this.

Slackware :: VirtualBox Failing To Build Kernel Modules

Jan 10, 2010

If others are have the problem of VirtualBox failing to build the kernel modules with kernel 2.6.32 try this :-

1. Install VirtualBox and watch as the kernel modules fail to compile.

2. Change the line

In the following files :-
Line 231 /opt/VirtualBox/src/vboxdrv/Makefile
Line 170 /opt/VirtualBox/src/vboxnetadp/Makefile
Line 174 /opt/VirtualBox/src/vboxnetflt/Makefile

3. Run /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv setup

You will now have a working VirtualBox setup. NB This is written purely from the standpoint of using the Closed source version of VB not the OSE version.

Fedora Installation :: Error - "Your System Does Not Seem To Be Set Up To Build Kernel Modules"

I'm trying to install Sun VirtualBox Additions into Fedora 12 which is installed in VirtualBox running on top of Windows 7. As the Fedora install was originally a live distro which was then installed to the HD, it may be missing some essential files for compiling.

My attempt to install the VBoxLinux additions is incomplete and I can't get the full range of video displays. The largest is This is the error message: "Your system does not seem to be set up to build kernel modules".

Should I update Fedora to install all the updates available? I did find one webpage which gave an accurate list of files to install for this purpose but can't find it now.

General :: Kernel Panic In 64bit Arch Linux After Kernel Recompile - 2.6.35-rc3

Jun 15, 2010

I have recompiled a few kernels, but all on 32bit systems so not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Running Arch Linux 64bit, most recent version.

Kernel Output:


My first thoughts was that it might be my grub bootloader configuration, so had a big play around with that but it didn't fix it. Also made sure support was built for filesystems. However almost all that Fstab mounts are ext3 anyway, and certainly the root and /boot are. Now thinking it may be a memory error so will run a check when I shutdown.

General :: Can't Install Kernel Headers In Arch / Sort It?

Mar 4, 2010

I'm trying to install the "kernel26-headers" package in Arch so I can (try to) compile the Intel 865G graphics drivers from off their website (I can't get H/W acceleration working with xf86-video-intel, but I know the thing has a GPU, because if I boot a Knoppix CD that I have, it enables Compiz by default, and it works damn well).

Any time I try "pacman -S kernel26-headers" I just get a bunch of errors spat back at me code...

Now, I have tried enabling all the US mirrors (HTTP and FTP), and I have even tried a couple of FTP servers in Canada and even Great Britain. None of them seem to work at all!

Is there any way I can get this package?

It has been years since I have need to compile the kernel or its modules. Here goes: I recently upgraded to ubuntu 10.10 and needed the kernel source and its modules source.

Is there a nice easy way, to remove all of the sources, there, and err "install" the ones for my latest kernel, in the correct places. Then I might have a chance at getting the two modules I need complied! Nvidia being one for the geforce 4 mx420 nv17

General :: Compiling New Kernel - List Of Current Modules

May 25, 2011

I'm trying to compile a kernel for my Crux Linux install. I figured I'd do a 'make defconfig' to setup a .config file with the default configuration and then try to add anything I will need for my specific system. I found a script that scans my system and prints out a list of any current modules I am using. That way I can make sure to add these to my new kernel. It looks something like this:


Is there a way to add these to my current configuration without having to go into 'make menuconfig' and search for each one? It's not too hard to search for many of them. But the ones with short names I'm not finding. Like ac.ko for example. 'ac.ko' returns 0 search results and 'ac' returns anything and everything with those 2 letters in it.

I use Debian 5.0.6 32-bit through VMware workstation installed on my Windows Server 2003. I just simply installed it from CD-1 and I use Directadmin on that.

I need a lot of iptables commands for blocking but I keep getting missing module errors on that one, I did lsmod | grep -i iptables to see there are no modules. It should have been installed by the disc image but I don't know why it didn't. So I now want to know how to get those modules required by iptables.
