I opted to install my Linux Fedora distribution, in a SUN VM (Virtualbox). [URL] I have 2 questions:
My current max res available to select is 1024x768. Can I run at 1920x1200? My display indicated that it is 'Unknown'. I don't know if that is in on the deal, or not...
Second question: When installing VBOXADDITIONS_3.1.2_56127, I am getting the error: Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules [FAILED]
If I am displaying the log correctly, it indicates: Makefile:23: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again.. Stop Pictures are located here, in the EVGA Linux forum: [URL] I am new to both Linux, and Fedora.
My mission statement: To run Linux using the Fedora distribution, in a VM window under Windows 7 64bit Ultimate, with the ability for scripting using Bash, with the Perl programming language installed, and use Apache Tomcat to monitor both apps, and various VM installs, on numerous Servers via the internet.
I have installed VMware (VMware-Player-3.0.1-227600.x86_64.bundle) on my laptop. When I open Vmware from Applications/System Tools/VMware Player.I get a window that says: VMware Kernel Module Updater Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel.When I click on install and after putting in my passwd.a window comes up with a list:
But it just try the first one and show an error (window) that says.unable to build kernel module see log file /tmp/vmware-root/setup-9572.log for details.I cannot even go into the folder vmware-root because it says I do not have permissions even though am an administrator.
I am trying to setup Slacware 13.1 x86_64 to a encrypted partition. I used the README_CRYPT.TXT howto : [URL] At the step when I create an initrd.gz I get this error: Quote: ERROR: No /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-smp kernel modules tree found for kernel "18.104.22.168-smp"
I tried to look into the directory and there was only modules under 22.214.171.124. So I tried to change the command into: Quote: mkinitrd -c -k 126.96.36.199 -m ext3 -f ext3 -r cryptroot -C /dev/sda2
This command was successful, but I don't know if this is alright. I made the changes in lilo.conf, add initrd = initrd.gz. This is all on unencrypted /boot partition. The boot=/dev/sda1 I also set for the unencrypted boot partition. When I boot the system I get a kernel panic:
I am writing a kernel module which need to do something at some interval. Now this problem can be solved by using a user process, which will send signal to the kernel and the kernel would do accordingly. But it would be nice, i could do it within the kernel module itself. Is there any way to use SIGNALs inside the kernel module?
I was trying to install VirtualBox through the YaST > Software Management but it is not working, someone in the forum told me that I have to download the OSE version and do it manual way. Finally I am able to start up VB but not able to use the network connection. Thus I am trying to do this:
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup. I get this error:
When I type dmesg, it shows me a bunch of info which I don't know what should look for. When I type modprobe vboxnetflt, I get the error: FATAL: Error inserting vboxnetflt (/lib/modules/188.8.131.52-1.2-default/updates/vboxnetflt.ko): Invalid module format. what should I do in order to get my VB to be able to connect to the internet?
I need to debug "ls". I downloaded coreutils and compiled them in debug mode."ls" uses readdir() kernel API to fetch files/directories from a file system. readdir() fetch data from any file system (suppose FAT or ext3).I have debug version of FAT/ext3 and installed, I also have debug version of coreutils (ls) as well.Now I want to debug from "ls" to "FAT/ext3 readdir()".How to do that?
I'm trying to build the kernel module for dvbhdhomerun. The problem is the linux kernel headers provided by Debian do not have the dvb header files. Trying to set up my own kernel source tree to use is not working out so well.
I'm following the instructions in the Debian section here: [URL] ....
My first try compiled, but the modules ender up under /lib/modules/3.2.51/extra instead of /lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/extra. Why?
I tried to start over, but noticed this while running apt-get source linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64:
Code: Select allReading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Picking 'linux' as source package instead of 'linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64' NOTICE: 'linux' packaging is maintained in the 'Svn' version control system at: svn://svn.debian.org/svn/kernel/dists/trunk/linux/
The failure to verify the signature has me concerned, but beyond that, what do I do about the different version number when compiling and installing the kernel modules?
I have two modules A and B in the kernel which i am trying to hack by introducing a variable in A which is of type 'extern' (and using EXPORT_SYMBOL) and then calling it in B. Now the problem is how to introduce that variable in module A. Currently i have made a global variable and it works fine but global variable in kernel is a bad bad thing.
I tried having an 'extern' function in A which have that variable and calling that function in module B, but then again how would module A use my variable unless the variable is available outside the scope of that function and that again means a global variable.
ubuntu could delay kernel module installation until device is inserted?Take my usb ath9271 wifi adapter as an example: when kernel boot up, no ath modules are installed until usb wifi apdapter is inserted, ath related modules are insmod.Could anybody how to achieve this? udev or something else?
i am trying learn to program linux kernel modules and smoothly transition in device driver programming. I have a year and a half worth of programming in C and have been using linux for years!! But my question is how do i compile a module? I got as far as coding it but am stuck as of now.
I've done a clean install of Slackware 13.37 64-bit and am having trouble with building the Perl modules for Bugzilla 4.x.x (downloaded yesterday with bzr). This same problem exists with both Bugzilla stable and 4.1.2+.Executing checksetup.pl results in
Code: checksetup.pl * This is Bugzilla 4.1.2+ on perl 5.12.3
I recently bought a pci multi io card to give my pc 2 parallel ports. For Linux, Moschip supply the source plus makefile and instructions. I ran make as root and got an error message make: *** /lib/modules/184.108.40.206-0.2-desktop/build/: No such file or directory. So I created a folder called build in /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-0.2-desktop but that isn't good enough as I still get an error cannot make target modules. So I assume there must be something in the build folder. So what packages do I have to install to get the correct environment to be able to build the driver? Has anyone done this and can supply the driver for 11.2?
I am attempting to install the Linuxant ALSA driver to make my sound work properly (speakers muting when headphones plugged in). This worked on Lucid, but on Maverick the installation fails at the "building modules" stage. It directs me to a logfile, which I have reproduced here:
im running suse 11.3_x64 clean install along side with Win7 Pro _x64 had a big fight installing Vbox 3.2.8 PUEL edition but i need to test some VMWare products like 'VMWare vShpere (ESXi 4..0.1 - which i couldn't install in a vm in Vbox) ' before putting it in production enviroment in some of my clients. version: VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.x86_64 The installation of vmware was quite simple with no errors. the problem kicks in after the first reboot when i try to run it. before installing vmware i installed the following:
When i try to run vmware workstation the 1st error kicks in: Before you can run vmware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel:
I installed ubuntu on my laptop recently and would like to have trim support. (Because I have a ssd drive (crucial c-300 256gb). The current kernel that I am using is the 2.6.32 (standard lucid kernel I believe). Unfortunately TRIM support is only available from 2.6.33 and up. So I thought I'd install a new kernel using this howto:
I'm trying to debug a module I programmed but I don't want to do it on the running host but against UML (don't want to reboot every 5 minutes).
The UML kernel I downloaded is 18.104.22.168. I have already downloaded the ubuntu kernel headers for this version (they belong to natty though I'm running maverick.... when I installed the .deb file with dpkg I had no problem at all).
Now I'd like to build said module against these headers. How can I do it?
I have just compiled a new kernel. When I boot into this new kernel and do an lsmod it is only running two modules. The only thing I changed in the configuration file was to compile ext4 file system into the kernel. My computer is an HP Pavilion dv4. The two modules are lirc_ene0100 and lirc_dev. I am running Ubuntu 10.04. The new kernel is 22.214.171.124+drm33.5. The kernel seems to work fine but I need to know why and how it can only be running two modules.
I'm trying to install VMWare server on my Kubuntu box and it's telling me there are 3 "kernel modules" that it needs me to remove (apparently they were installed previously and VMWare isn't liking that).How do I remove them? Never messed with the kernel modules before.
I recently updated the kernel from SLES 11 to SLES 11 SP1 .However my kernel modules are not getting loaded and they throw an error such as shown below:"Errornserting mii : Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)"
I am trying to write kernel modules. And am running Ubuntu 10.04 x64. I have downloaded both kernel source and headers. Unpacked kernel source and made a /usr/src/linux symbolic link pointing to the src. Here is the output of running make:
I am trying to build linux kernel I am getting out of space after a while. I unpacked it in /usr/src directory. It seems I have plenty of space. How much space does it need to compile & build kernel. I am using VirtualBox.
How do I get modules in the Kernel to load automatically at boottime? I''m specifically trying to get i810fb to load during the boot process. In Ubuntu, I just had to edit a file and update my initramfs. How do I do this in Fedora?
The new kernel upgrade on Fedora 14 will not boot. lib/modules do not exist is the message. Grub was adjusted to match the old kernel, and the new kernel when booting says lib/modules do not exist. The old kernel has twice as many modules as the new kernel in lib/modules. How do I get the new modules to install so I can boot with the new kernel then? Should I reinstall the new kernel?
I am having some issues compiling kernel modules against the pre-built OpenSUSE kernel. Whenever I compile a module and try to load it, I get something like:
Code: insmod fs/smbfs/smbfs.ko insmod: error inserting 'fs/smbfs/smbfs.ko': -1 Invalid module format It doesn't actually matter what the module is, they all do the same thing. I have tried the above mentioned smbfs, I've also tried:vmware kernel module
I am attempting to compile the linux-126.96.36.199 kernel from kernel.org to use with an installation of Fedora 14 (188.8.131.52-83.fc14.x86_64). I've done this before with different kernel versions for older versions of Fedora, but I've encountered a new problem this time. Whenever I get to the "make install" step, I get the following:Quote:
sh /home/user/testing/source/linux-184.108.40.206/arch/x86/boot/install.sh 220.127.116.11 arch/x86/boot/bzImage System.map "/boot"
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. The relevant directories are in a mess. Several diff versions, broken links, the works. 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
