Debian :: Building Kernel - Initrd Fail And Nvidia Can't Find Source

Feb 25, 2010

So I'm building a custom kernel cuz I want the fbcondecor patch in my kernel. I use the same .config that 2.6.32 debian kernel package comes with. This kernel runs perfectly. I pass --initrd to make-kpkg when building the package but no initrd is built when I install it so I have to make it using "mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.33 2.6.33" to get it to boot. Now when I try to build the nvidia drivers it complains it can't find the source. I did build kernel_headers and installed them also the source is in /usr/src/linux. I also tried to specify the path by passing --kernel-source-path= to the nvidia script but no change. What is going on? I've done this fifty times before and never had any problems. Has there been some changes to how debian kernel packages are built? EDIT: Just thought I'd add some info about the steps I took.

Code:
tar xjvf linux-2.6.33.tar.bz2
ln -s linux-2.6.33 linux
cd linux
patch -p1 < ../fbcondecor-0.9.6-2.6.33-rc7.patch
cp /boot/config-2.6.32-trunk-686 ./.config

make menuconfig Loaded .config then I removed support for maxtorfb, tile blitting and some sirrusfb thing, nothing thats relevant to my system. Changed cpu from Pentium 4 to Core 2 and added framebuffer decor
support from my patch, exited and saved. Then:

[Code]....

EDIT2: I have now tried to build 2.6.32.8 in the same way with the same strange results, anyone have any thoughts as to what I'm doing wrong just throw it at me, I'm getting desperate and running out of ideas. I've checked all the kernel source symlinks and everything looks good.

Software :: FC12 Kernel Source PAE - Building Proprietary Nvidia

Feb 9, 2010

I have a problem with PAE kernel sources and builing nvidia driver. uname -a returns Linux myX 2.6.31.12-174.2.3.fc12.i686.PAE #1 SMP Mon Jan 18 20:06:44 UTC 2010 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

1. I run ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.22-pkg1.run and I get an error message that kernel sources cannot be found.

2. My folders: /lib/modules had these two subfolders 2.6.31.5-127.fc12.i686.PAE 2.6.31.12-74.2.3.fc12.i686.PAE so what I did, I run: yum install kernel and got inside /lib/modules this extra 3rd subfolder (no PAE) 2.6.31.12-174.2.3.fc12.i686 On the other hand /usr/src/kernels has one subdirectory (no PAE): 2.6.31.12-174.2.3.fc12.i686

3. Now, when I build nvidia driver, it still gives me the error, that no sources found, so I do
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.22-pkg1.run --kernel-source-path /usr/src/kernels/2.6.31.12-174.2.3.fc12.i686 and get an error that this seems to be the incorrect version. And I guess this is true as I have no PAE sources.

4. Further, when I look at

Ubuntu :: NVIDIA Installer Can't Find Kernel Source

Mar 7, 2010

First my uname -a

Code: Linux quad 2.6.33 #1 SMP Sun Mar 7 18:22:02 CET 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux I am using Trisquel GNU/Linux 3.0. I am asking my questions here, since this involves non-free drivers. I succesfully installed the nvidia driver on the default kernel. But the default kernel has removed all support for DVB USB sticks, so I had to compile my own kernel.

I got the newest version from kernel.org. Saved the archieve to /usr/src/. unzipped the file in the directory (so my kernel source is now in /usr/src/linux-2.6.33/.) Made a symlink with ln -s linux-2.6.33 linux. I compiled the kernel succesfully. Did a "make install" and "make modules_install" and ran "update-grub". Restarted system. Cd'ed to my source directory and ran "make headers_install" succesfully. Looking at my timestamps, it looks like the kernel headers has been installed to /usr/src/linux-2.6.33/usr/include/linux/. I downloaded the latest x86_64 drivers from nvidias website. Went to console 1 and closed up X. If I start the installer without any parameters (sh NVIDIA*.run) I get the following error:

Code: ERROR: Unable to determine the version of the kernel sources located in '/lib/modules/2.6.33/source'. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed. If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' command line option. lib/modules/2.6.33/source is a symlink which point to /usr/src/linux-2.6.33

I get the same error if using --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux/, /usr/src/linux-2.6.33/ and similar options which link to this directory through symlinks. If I use --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux-2.6.33/usr/include, I get the following error:

Ubuntu :: Unable To Find The Kernel Source Tree Nvidia Driver Install

May 12, 2010

So after getting around the Fakeraid bug, and the grub bug, and all the other bugs killing my system fixed and then i moved on to install my video driver. There was nothing in Administration>Hardware Drivers, so i downloaded the latest driver for my two 8600m gt cards. Did the whole ctrl+alt+f2 and then stopping xserver and then running the driver install only to run into yet another damn bug(see log below)

I have tried fixing it by doing what other threads have said to do e.g:[URL] still nothing. Below is the Nvidia log.

Debian Configuration :: Nvidia-kernel-source Was Not Built Successfully

Apr 26, 2011

Squeeze-beta was my first foray into Debian, and I love it. I changed my setup to a rolling setup with testing (Wheezy), and have done that for several months. Lately, I got a new kernel, but it reboots to a terminal rather than GUI (I'm a simple laptop user). I think it's because of the NVIDIA drivers, and here is what I've tried (meanwhile, I'm using the previous kernel):

# apt-get install module-assistant nvidia-kernel-common
# m-a auto-install nvidia-kernel${VERSION}-source
A blue screen appears that says:

module-assistant error message Bad luck, the kernel headers for the target kernel version could not be found and you did not specify other valid kernel headers to use.

You can try:

module-assistant prepare
or
apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.38-2-amd64

I have done both, rebooted, and I still get the blue screen. I also see this message:

nvidia-kernel-source was not built successfully, see:

/var/cache/modass/nvidia-kernel-source*buildlog*

...and I have copy/pasted the file below (which omits lines 101-200 because this message is too long then):

/usr/bin/make -f debian/rules clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel'

Slackware :: Failure Building Nvidia-kernel Slackbuild From SBo?

Jun 27, 2011

I have a brand new installation of 13.37 but I can't seem to get the nvidia-kernel (64 bit only) Slackbuild from slackbuilds.org to build. I have the nvidia driver installed and working on 13.1 so I am not desperate yet: although I thought that it could just be something with the older Nvidia driver so I waited for the updated release but it fails in the same way.I have uninstalled xf86-video-nouveau and installed xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist-noarch-1.txz from /extra.I have also installed libvdpau from SBo. The nvidia-driver Slackbuild builds fine.I am using the stock 2.6.37.6 huge kernel but have also tried the 2.6.38.4 kernel from /extra and the 2.6.38.7 kernel from Slackware-current.Here is the error message I am seeing:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fail To Initialize The NVIDIA Kernel Module?

Sep 29, 2010

Problem: computer and graphics card had been running for months without problem. For some reason, last night, things locked up...wouldn't think it's related, but happened when I noticed I was locked out of creating new folders on my usb attached My Book storage drive. So, from terminal I tried to sudo change permissions to read/write. Everything locked up. Now, every time I reboot it states needing to use low graphics mode "Screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly."

When I check the error log I see: "(EE) Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module.."(EE) NVIDIA(0): ***Aborting* Screens found but none have a usable configuration. Fatal Server Error - no screens found"

If I try to then start in safe low graphics mode or restart X, I get the Ubuntu splash screen with the 5 dots that turn red to show progress...but nothing ever happens. I can switch to VT 1, login at command line, and type "startx" and then the graphical desktop loads just fine. Video playback, etc. is perfect and fine - not in low graphics mode at all. System seems totally normal.

However, I have to go through these steps each time I reboot. Also, I noticed that when I try to boot from Ubuntu Live CD I can't. I get as far as picking English as a language, then screen goes blank and goes to power saving mode (no signal being sent). This greatly concerns me as even though I have a work around for now - getting to command line then startx'ing - if I ever needed to reinstall from the CD, it seems I can't.

Some info on my pc:Running 10.04 on Compaq Presario SR1950NX AMD 64 GeForce 6150 LE/PCI/SSE2/3DNow! <- believe built onto motherboard on what I can do to fix? Is this a sign that something is wrong with my video card?

Debian :: Building Packages Using A Git Repo As The Source?

Jan 21, 2011

I would like to create some packages for programs that use the Git software to manage the source, I want to do this directly using the source code in the Git repo as the source code form the package. Does anyone have any hints or directions on how to do this? I been looking round the web for information about this, but all I seem to find is for about storing and build Debian packages from git, this is not what I want to do as these packages are for personal use and I have no need for this.

Debian :: Make-kpkg --initrd Won't Create Initrd?

May 18, 2010

When I compile a custom kernel with this command: make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers and then install the .deb, there's no initrd in /boot and I have to create it manually. I've thought that the --initrd option should take care about this, but somehow it doesn't.

It behaves like this for about two years at least (since I've compiled my first kernel). Of course, it's no big deal to create it manually, I was just wondering whether do I do anything wrong or whether should I fill a bug report..

Slackware :: 13.37.0 NVIDIA Driver - The Kernel Source Cannot Be Indetified/found

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Compiling Kernel-source For NVidia Driver Install

Jun 18, 2011

In order to configure a dual display in a fresh 11.4 installation, I am attempting to install the nVidia driver according to the instructions in SDB:NVIDIA the hard way - openSUSE. I have not previously compiled or configured a kernel so I largely followed the instructions from OpenSUSE 11.2 - How to compile a Kernel for Newbies.The currently installed kernel is 2.6.37.1-1.2-desktop. The graphics card is an ASUS EN9600GSO (512MB).

In Yast, I installed gcc, make, kernel-devel (v. 2.6.37.1-1.2) and kernel-desktop-devel (v. 2.6.37.1-1.2). Per the "hard way" instructions, I did not install kernel-source.

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:
svn://svn.debian.org/svn/kernel/dists/trunk/linux/

[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?

Ubuntu :: Where To Find Kernel Code Source

May 19, 2010

I was trying to install VPN client for my Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit. During the installation process the terminal reads:

"Directory containing linux kernel source code [/lib/modules/2.6.31-21-generic/build]"

On that I pressed enter for the default option (in bold). After a few more steps I reached the following error:

Making module
sh: Can't open ./driver_build.sh
Failed to make module "cisco_ipsec.ko".

[/lib/modules/2.6.31-21-generic/build] is the location where the installer expects the kernel source to be (I am guessing). So unless I correct the terminal (by providing the location of the kernel source), I think I will keep on getting the same error message.

So to get the kernel source I visited: [URL]From there I copy pasted the command:

sudo apt-get build-dep --no-install-recommends linux-image-$(uname -r)
apt-get source linux-image-$(uname -r)

Everything went fine, but even now I don't know if at all I have a kernel source and where it exists on my machine.

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?

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)
