Ubuntu :: Difference Between Kernel 'source Code' And Kernel Itself

Jul 3, 2011

It sounds like he's making a difference between the kernel "source code" and the kernel itself(as in the downloaded file/ files) but the way he talks about both is the same.So then, if one had already "installed" the "kernel sources code," why would he need the "tarball with the newest Linux kernel?" He's already "installed" a kernel, right?

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.

Red Hat :: Difference Between 'kernel Sources' & 'kernel-devel'

Jan 7, 2010

I have installed CentOS 5.4 & am trying to install VirtualBox on it. To install VirtualBox I run the command:

yum localinstall path/Virtualbox.rpm

It runs through the dependency check & says everything is fine. It installs the rpm & then says that compiling of the kernel module failed & that VirtualBox will not start until this is fixed, & that the most like cause is that the kernel sources are not installed.

I have installed the kernel-devel package & have the kernel source tree located at /usr/src/kernel/2.6....

General :: Tried To Install Bcmwl-kernel-source And Now Getting Kernel Panic

Jun 25, 2010

I am running an Hp Pavillion dv6000 with the Broadcom card that never seems to work for Linux. I recently talked with my friend who said he found a way to get it work.following his instructions I opened Synaptic and checked the package bmcwl-kernel-source to be installed.I went through the process of it all and it said it had install successfully. I restarted the computer and when I tried to enter my operating system I got this error "Kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown - block(8,1)"
I have previous versions of Linux on my computer so I can still get in to those if need be but I don't know how to undo what I did or why it isn't working for that matter. Does anyone have any ideas as to why I am getting this error and how I can fix it?

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.

Programming :: Difference Between Various Symbols Of Kernel

I was going through some exercise given in my school. I have read the C book but I am not able to understand some part. That is static variable. What exactly is a static variable and what does it do? I saw in Linux Kernel Programming external and exported are also some thing. I am not getting the difference between static,EXPORT_SYMBOL,external variable types. If I make a kernel module then how will I make sure that my variable is visible to the kernel. Is this what it is all talking about? I have checked this page [URL].

Debian :: Finding Kernel Headers Files Difference?

Jul 3, 2009

I usually custom compile my kernel and generate the header files with the following command:


fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=generic-ide kenrel_image kernel_headers

However, I noticed that there are some difference in the headers files that get generated with the above command as compared to the header files that are available from Debian repo. For example, the header files for 2.6.24 kernel have files like:


debian:/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686/arch/x86# ls Kconfig Kconfig.cpu Kconfig.debug kernel Makefile Makefile_32 Makefile_32.cpu Makefile_64 However, if I custom compile the above kernel from Debian sources (2.6.24), the headers files does not have the above files:


debain:/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.24-generic-ide/arch/x86# ls
boot ia32 Kconfig.cpu kernel lib mach-es7000 mach-visws Makefile mm pci vdso xen
crypto Kconfig Kconfig.debug lguest mach-default mach-generic mach-voyager math-emu oprofile power video

As you can see from above output, files like Makefile_32, Makefile_32.cpu are not present, if I generate kernel headers files using the make-kpkg command as mentioned in the beginning of the post. I happened to notice the above issue, while I was trying to compile a out-of-tree kernel module and the "make" command for those sources (some graphics card drm module) worked with the default header files (linux-headers-2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686) but did not work with (linux-headers-2.6.24-generic-ide) because it did not find the Makefile_32. Although I was able to fix the problem by copying the Makefile_32 from linux-headers-2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686 but I would like to know why there is a difference. This is bit of a concern because it unnecessarily breaks the out-of-tree module compilation process because of trivial reasons.
