Software :: Recompiling Kernel Required To Add Modules?

Jan 4, 2011

I only have basic experience recompiling a Linux kernel, and I have a question about adding dynamic modules.In case I want to add a brand new module, do I need to recompile the kernel to include a reference to that new module, or is simply compiling a kernel with generic support of dynamic modules all it takes to add whatever modules I need later on, without recompiling the kernel and rebooting the host?

I was wondering how/if it was possible to edit the min. version number of a depen for a .deb package. For example lets say my package says it needs libc6 2.7.1 or higher but I want it to be 2.5.1 or higher instead. Can I make this change with out having to recompile the .deb package?

OpenSUSE Network :: Reconfiguring / Recompiling The Sendmail Conf Files But Would Rather Not If It's Not Required + Milter?

Mar 22, 2011

I have gone through a good number of distros all the way back to Slackware but I'm struggling to get my brain moving in the right direction again. I am working to enable sendmail and, from what I've read, it appears that newer version of sendmail are installed with milter but I can't seem to locate this. I am running v11.4 so I'm wondering if this is just not the case? I don't have a problem reconfiguring/recompiling the sendmail conf files but would rather not if it's not required. For the record my ultimate goal is to have the spamassassin and clamav milter's installed and using the home server as our primary email.

Slackware :: ERROR: No /lib/modules/ Kernel Modules Tree Found For Kernel "" ... For Mkinitrd - Encrypted Installation

Jul 22, 2010

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/ kernel modules tree found for kernel ""

I tried to look into the directory and there was only modules under So I tried to change the command into: Quote: mkinitrd -c -k -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'm update Python , but founde problem root@server [~]# yum update There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was: No module named yum

Debian :: Recompiling Changed Code When Building Kernel Debs

Jan 15, 2016

How do I force recompilation of the kernel .deb packages. After a small change I make to the sources without having to clean the sources and recompile the whole kernel again?

Code: Select all$ fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen setup_i386_none_686
$ fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen binary-arch_i386_none_686 binary-indep

Calling the second command again does not recompile the modified code, just recreates the .deb packages.

If I use:

Code: Select all$ make -f debian/rules clean before the build command, then it will recompile everything which takes ages.

How can I force recompilation of the files/objects I changed (and dependencies)?

I use this guide: [URL] .... ('Building only a single kernel variant' section)

OpenSUSE :: Recompiling VirtualBox Vboxadd Kernel Module, NOT. It Has Been Packaged

Jun 29, 2011

I just up-graded to the latest version of the stable 11.4 64bit kernel on my laptop and it appears that the repositories have not compiled the VirtualBox driver module for the current kernel ... When I make /vboxdrv setup the message is:

Recompiling VirtualBox vboxadd kernel module, NOT. It has been packaged

I think this means that the installed module will not recompile has it was packaged. My kernel version is the lattest :

And my VirtualBox was installed from the Virtualization repos ( even made the Vendor change and all. The version Before the lattest (4.0.4-1.6) did not work either. With the same problem. It is very easy to install VirtualBox from the Sun site and every time there is a Kernel up-date one can always make /etc/vboxdrv setup.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Enable New Libata Library Without Recompiling Kernel?

Sep 9, 2009

I use CentOS 5.3 with kernel 2.6.18-128.1.6.el5 for Clonezilla. It would be simpler for me if any of IDE or SATA drives detects as /dev/sdX device. Because when I cloning computers with Clonezilla it is matter which type of drive connected to cloned computer. So I must firstly clone computers with IDE drives, after that with SATA drives. If all drives would detected as /dev/sda I would can clone all computers at once! Is there simple way to enable new libata library without recompiling kernel? Is there already compiled kernels with this feature?

Ubuntu :: Recompiling Ubuntu Kernel

Mar 11, 2010

I am trying to compile a kernel 2.6.31-12 in my machine which is running ubuntu 9.0(kernel version 2.6.31-14). I don't have internet connection on that machine. I somehow downloaded the kernel sources on some other machine and copied it the my PC which is running ubuntu.I have installed the kernel sources (.gz file) by un-zipping and un-tarring the archive. For compiling the kernel I am following the traditional approach:

1. make oldconfig ( make menu config is not working )
2. make dep
2. make clean
3. make bzImage
4. make modules
5. make modules_install
6. make install
7. Modify the /boot/grub/grub.cgf

I didnt encounter any error in the above steps till step no. 6. However in the
step 7, I am not getting the /boot/initrd.img- file which is needed for the ramfs. However I am getting the vmlinuz file in the /boot.

Programming :: Using SIGNALS In Kernel Modules?

Apr 23, 2010

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 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:

Fedora Installation :: New Kernel Will Not Boot (Modules)

Mar 26, 2011

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?
