General :: Extracting Kernel Config From Kernel Image -- Extract-ikconfig

Jan 22, 2010

I'm trying to run extract-ikconfig because I've mistakenly deleted an old kernel config that I'd like to recover. However, when running the script from the latest ( tree I run into this error:


ERROR: Unable to extract kernel configuration information.

This kernel image may not have the config info.

Coincidentally, this happens with all of my kernel images. Is it a fixable problem? I should really set CONFIG_IKCONFIG_PROC next time..

General :: CentOS 5.3 - Updating To Next Kernel Version

Feb 7, 2010

I have just downloaded CentOS 5.3. The kernel version is 2.6.18.xx However, when I updated the kernel version has not changed. Still 2.6.18. Unless something went wrong with the updates. The most up to date kernel is 2.6.31.xx I was thinking shouldn't it update to this new kernel? On my Fedora 12 I have 2.6.31. However, I thought the kernel of 2.6.18 would have been updated as least a little.

General :: Create Device File For Image File?

Sep 8, 2010

Everything in Linux is a file, right? And everything can be represented by a file? Is there some way I could create a block device file that represents (i.e., provides an interface to) this image file? If so, then I could use fdisk on the device file to split it into partitions, format the partitions, and then mount them as directories. I could create a file system within a file system, which would be fun.

General :: Using Much Higher Kernel Version Than Installed Headers

Jul 18, 2010

Many here know I distribute alot of live stuff and thus many say I should try to putout as high a kernel version as possible for wireless, netbooks, questions are about using a much higher kernel version than the installed headers for instance; I use kernel 2.6.34-ZEN in my arch/slackware builds but the slackware version contains headers from slackware and so is that a problem or no?I built the kernel from source using headers in slackware and headers 2.6.34 in, I may be upgrading those kernels to meerkats 2.6.35-r5 and need to know if having headers is an issue?also, after compiling kernel does it install a new set of headers when you do make modules_install?

I am trying to install ndiswrapper, and have gotten as far as extracting the .gz file. However, when I type in the "make" command, it returns the error message:

Cannot find kernel version in /usr/src/linux-, is it configured? Stop.

I do not have anything in the folder /usr/src, so I don't know where it might be. I'd like to install this, so it will make my switch to Linux easier.

General :: Build A Glibc Version For Target Machine's Kernel?

Jan 8, 2010

AFAIK, in addition to implementing the standard C library, glibc provides wrappers for system calls, threading support, and basic application facilities. So because of that, glibc that will be used on my target system should be built based on the kernel version running on my target, right?

Based on the above, I am trying to build a glibc version for my target machine's kernel. However, I don't know to to build a glibc library for a target system and also where on the target's filesystem should be put? In which location Linux will start looking for the libraries required for a program to run (should I create an /etc/ file)?

General :: Fedora 14 - Kernel Not Compatible With Latest Version Of VBox

Jan 21, 2011

I have install windows XP and Fedora-14-X86_64 on dual boot, I want to run other OS on fedora by using Virtual machine. I have download and installed VirtaulBox-4.0.0 successfully but I cannot able to start it. I got error about Vbox driver not installed [error code:1908]. I have also installed DKMS package, but also didn't work.

Finally I found the actual problem was kernel not compatible with latest version of vbox and I need to update my kernel-headers. I also meet that solution by using command: yum install binutils gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel and its work fine, this command download and install the kernel compatible VirtualBox-3.2.* and now its works fine.

But problem is that when I booting my PC, it shows 3 options for entering OS rather then 2.
1. Fedora-14 ( [which is new one/updated after using that command]
2. Fedora-14 ( [which is new one/updated after using that command]
3. Other [windows XP]
How can i delete that old version- No.2?
