CentOS 5 Server :: Building Custom Kernel 2.16.19-128.1.10?

May 27, 2009

I have builded my kernel through wiki manual, BUT, the kernel-headers rpm-package has not been builded. Now i have only two packages: kernel and kernel-devel. Is that ok? (i think, that it is not ok, because when i build the same version of kernel on x86_64 platform, after rpmbuild command i have kernel, kernel-devel and kernel-headers packages) My CentOS version is 5.2; platform i686; kernel, kernel-headers, kernel-devel packages 2.6.18-92.el5.

CentOS 5 :: Create A Custom Kernel Using Kernel Source?

Oct 31, 2009

I'm running CentOS 5.3 and would like to know what the "best" or "proper" method is to build a custom kernel using the generic kernel sources from kernel.org. Most of the references I've found talk about modifying the current CentOS kernel using the RPM way. I really want to have the latest kernel due to some important security issues that haven't been addressed in the current CentOS 5.3 kernel.

CentOS 5 Server :: Building VMWare Virtual Machines From CentOS Mail Servers?

Oct 12, 2010

I have a few mail servers, a mail log server and a web server running on Centos 5. Now I have a task: to avoid accidental crashes on the production servers while installing updates, my boss asked me to do clones (these clones will all be VMware virtual machines) of the servers (EXCLUDING the actual e-mails and log contents) and then to run those clones on VMWare Server. This way, first I will install and test updates on the clones and - if they will be running without crashes - I will apply the updates on the real production servers themselves.

I have already installed VMWare Server 2.0 I have a few questions: How do I build the virtual machines to exclude the actual mail files and mail logs? Can I use VMware Converter for this purpose, or do I have to use another program? How do I actually do this cloning? Is there a tutorial on how to do this?

CentOS 5 :: Custom Kernel For Enable Write Barriers With Xfs And Lvm2,worth?

Dec 7, 2010

I have read that when using xfs with lvm2, prior to kernel 2.6.29 write barriers are by deffault disabled.As i want to migrate /home to xfs (and create a external partition to hold some data in xfs too) i was thinking in compile a custom kernel 2.6.30 or higher from [URL].I have read the wiki, all the warnings , and that for compile a kernel.org kernel you should use the Linux Kernel in a Nutshel guide/book. But i don't really know if would worth do that only to have write barrier support , more when in one month i will buy a ups to be sure i can shutdown the pc well if the power goes out.Should i enable write barriers on xfs with lvm2 ,although going to have a ups ?

Software :: Tools For Building Custom Live CDs

Nov 12, 2010

I need to build customs liveCd (usb) to run a distributed application that I'm developing. I have been using debian live-helper to build debian live cds, and it's very flexible, and works. But I'm looking for an alternative to it. I have heard about fedora livecd-creator. What do you think is a better tool?: livehelper or livecd-creator, maybe about good hardware recognition, easy to use, flexibility, reliability, etc. What others good tools are to do this job?

Server :: Custom CentOS 5 Install With Ks.cfg File And CentOS All In One

Jan 14, 2010

What i want to be able to do is create a custom kickstart for my centOS 5 server. I want to create a bootable cd that I can pop in my server and basically walk away for 45 minutes and I come back and its fully installed. All the directions I have read so far tell me that I have to create a seperate ks.cfg and then I need my original centos cd to get it booted. Then the cd will ask for where the ks.cfg file is and I have to type the location. I just want to pop the CD in and type in linux_clean or something and have it perform a custom install based on the information and specification in my ks.cfg. How can I go about doing this?

Server :: Mounting Ext3 File System As Ext2 On Slackware With Custom Build Kernel?

May 16, 2010

I just rebuild the kernel for slackware 13, everything works, but root file system which is ext3 is mounted as ext2. Normally I've build ext3, ext4 and so on as modules, not in the kernel... but if I do this, then the kernel mounts the file system as ext2, which is build in the kernel. I also modified rc.modules so I can make sure that ext3,ext4,jbd are loaded, but it doesnt work.

CentOS 5 :: CentOS 5 Home Server Power Consumtion? (features, Kernel Versions Etc.)?

Feb 28, 2010

I built a home server (NAS/WWW/SSH/media server etc) and chose CentOS 5 as the OS (stability, easy of configuration).I was just about to start tuning the power consumption when I realised that the kernel CentOS uses is so "old" that it does not support the latest reduced power consumption enhancements that Linux has achieved in big strides in the recent past (we are probably still talking 6-12+ months ago e.g. tickless kernel)..

So my questions; 1) I know CentOS was maybe not meant for home servers (certainly its not its primary purpose), but if it is, any ideas of what kind of power consumption it takes (I know its relative) and if there are particular power consumptions that are worthwhile?

2) Do you recommend me compiling my own 2.6.21+ kernel from kernel.org or am I just likely to have compatibility issues (I really did not want to do that) or when is CentOS 5.4 supposed to have a newer 2.6.21+ version kernel?

Was it wrong of me in principle to choose CentOS for a home server when I am power conscious? (I don't have a low-power VIA processor either but a P4 so I am really just hoping to make do with software changes).

I tried to build linux-2.6.36 but I got this error message


I looked into gcc-version.sh but the problem is located somewhere else I thought at first one of the files might have been corrupted and I downloaded the archive again.

I must also say that this happened in different versions of slackware (the distro I use): 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1

Debian Programming :: Building Kernel Module

Dec 8, 2013

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:

[Code] ....

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?

Fedora :: Override .config When Building Kernel Rpm?

Jul 14, 2011

I am using FC15.I need a kernel with a different configuration - with the "Preemptible Kernel (Low-Latency Desktop)" option in the Processor Type and features menu. I need this to support my firewire audio device. I would like to build a new kernel RPM from the SRPM so that i can keep a clean system with RPMs for all files, and I don't really want to manually override the kernel bypassing RPM.I am following **exactly** the process described there - I install the SRPM, unpack the source, then use the starting sample config files in the BUILD folder to create a new customised .config file with the new option, then copy this back to the SOURCE folder.

This works perfectly if I make a standard kernel. But I cannot get the process to work if I change the config file. Every time I compile I end up with exactly the standard kernel -- a vanilla i686 kernel, without my custom config.I believe the problem is that when I run rpmbuild to compile the kernel, this process overwrites my config option. I found that there is a script (merge.pl) which creates new config files dyanmically for all kernel options based on fragments in the SOURCE folder. It looks like the script never uses the config file that I am putting into the SOURCE folder.The wiki page suggests using this command to copy my custom config file cp .config ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/config-`uname -m`

Software :: Specifying GCC Version For Building Kernel Module

May 1, 2011

I'm trying to set up a netbook I purchased that has a lot of more recent hardware, and so I'm having to compile some kernel modules on my own. I've installed Debian on this particular system, and so the version of gcc that was used to compile the kernel is older than the one currently in the repos. Now, I've installed the version I need, but can't remember how to specify building the modules in question with said version.

I've done this in the past, and recall temporarily changing some variable to use the different version, but it's been a while and I just can't remember. Is there an easier way to do this on the fly for any compilation? Or is changing a variable necessary? If there is no way to explicitly specify gcc version used prior to a compilation, could someone remind me of the variable I need to change to use x.x.x version?

Slackware :: Building SlackBuilds KVM Does Not Work - Kernel

Oct 1, 2010

Since there was a lot of talk about virtualization I thought I try kvm -- before I used VirtualBox. I took the SlackBuild from SlackBuilds.org and got an error with u8 as type in /usr/include/scsi/scsi.h. (sorry, I don't have the exact error message anymore..) I searched for its definition and I only found __u8 in /usr/include/linux/types.h. Then I searched the web and found a "fix" which says I have to change u8 from /usr/include/scsi/scsi.h to __u8. This problem was solved, but when I run the SlackBuild now it stops at some point and I don't know why. These are the last few lines of output:

CC arm-softmmu/translate.o
CC arm-softmmu/tcg/tcg.o
CC arm-softmmu/tcg/tcg-runtime.o
CC arm-softmmu/fpu/softfloat.o .....
LINK i386-softmmu/qemu
AR arm-softmmu/libqemu.a
LINK arm-softmmu/qemu-system-arm

I put an echo after the make for building kvm and I put an echo after "make install". None of them are printed.

Debian Configuration :: Building A Loadable Kernel Module?

Jul 30, 2010

I upgraded my kernel in my Debian Lenny to version 2.6.32-bpo.4-amd64 to fix a problem with a software and ALSA-related issues. The thing is that now, when I boot, eth1 is not enabled and I have to "load" (I guess) the driver each time. To do this, I go to the folder where all the files for the drivers are and I run:

modprobe lib80211
and then
insmod wl.ko

That I got from the readme file. That gets the wireless working perfectly again, but when I reboot the wireless is dead again and I have to run the commands above again. I imagine that what I should do is to build the driver again, for my new kernel. However, according to the readme file, before I need to install linux-headers-generic and build-essential. With build-essential, it says it's already the newest version, and with the linux-headers, I don't know which one should I install for my kernel! I thought it would be the linux-headers-2.6.32-bpo.4-xen-amd64, but when I tried that, this is what happened:

debian:/home/hernan/Programas/hybrid_wl# apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.32-bpo.4-xen-amd64
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree


So the warning says something about the MODULE_LICENSE being missing... how to build the driver again to make it load each time I boot?
