Ubuntu :: Kernel Building Error Kernel-package=12.032

Oct 5, 2010

I installed ubuntu on my laptop recently and would like to have trim support. (Because I have a ssd drive (crucial c-300 256gb). The current kernel that I am using is the 2.6.32 (standard lucid kernel I believe). Unfortunately TRIM support is only available from 2.6.33 and up. So I thought I'd install a new kernel using this howto:

General :: Error Building Kernel 2.6.36

Nov 2, 2010

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

Code:

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

Red Hat / Fedora :: Boot Error After Building New Kernel

Nov 19, 2009

I am using Centos 5 with an old kernel. I want to build the latest version for atheros 5K wireless drivers. So i downloaded, and compiled with the ".config" which is already in /boot , and made it ready to run.

However, whenever i try to boot with new kernel, after choosing it from the grub menu, i got the following error. I tried many many .config files but the result was the same.

Here is the screen capture of the error;

I'm trying this process for a week without any success...

I am running Lenny and using VirtualBox OSE 1.6.6. In order to try squeeze I installed it in a VM. I tried to install Guest Additions also, but i get this error:

Fedora Hardware :: Run At 1920x1200 - Error: Building The VirtualBox Guest Additions Kernel Modules [FAILED]

Jan 31, 2010

I opted to install my Linux Fedora distribution, in a SUN VM (Virtualbox). [URL] I have 2 questions:

My current max res available to select is 1024x768. Can I run at 1920x1200? My display indicated that it is 'Unknown'. I don't know if that is in on the deal, or not...

Second question: When installing VBOXADDITIONS_3.1.2_56127, I am getting the error: Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules [FAILED]

If I am displaying the log correctly, it indicates: Makefile:23: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again.. Stop Pictures are located here, in the EVGA Linux forum: [URL] I am new to both Linux, and Fedora.

My mission statement: To run Linux using the Fedora distribution, in a VM window under Windows 7 64bit Ultimate, with the ability for scripting using Bash, with the Perl programming language installed, and use Apache Tomcat to monitor both apps, and various VM installs, on numerous Servers via the internet.

Debian :: Automatic Removal Of Kernel Headers Package When Kernel Packages Are Removed

Dec 28, 2008

As a follow-on to something Telemachos said in another post:

I would have thought that removing a given kernel package would trigger the removal of the older kernel headers. Can someone confirm that is, or is not, the behavior? I ask this because it seemed to me that the older kernel header packages were indeed removed when I removed some older kernel packages.

For example, the linux kernels I have installed are:

Also, the linux-headers packages I have installed are:

So, when I get around to removing the linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64 package like this:

Code:

I would expect apt-get to automatically also remove linux-headers-2.6.25-2-amd64 and linux-headers-2.6.25-2-common. Is that what will happen, or do I need to explicitly state all three packages on the apt-get remove command?

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel 2.6.28.1 On 9.10 Grub Kernel Load Error

Jan 4, 2010

Over the past few days I have been trying to install an older kernel (kernel 2.6.28.1) on ubuntu 9.10 64-bit WUBI installation. I compiled, installed, and updated my grub for the kernel. When I reboot, the grub menu correctly gives me the option of booting into the older kernel but when I do so I receive the following error message:

error: you need to load the linux kernel first.

I am at a complete loss on how to fix this. I even downgraded grub but I still get the same error.

General :: Getting Info On Kernel On Another Disk - Kernel Panic Error 6 Ext3

Feb 13, 2011

Dell laptop booting from a USB stick with a CentOS 5.5 minimum installation.

Uncompressing Linux...OK, booting the kernel.
Red Hat nash version 4.2.1.13 starting
sda: assuming drive cache: write through
sda: assuming drive cache: write through
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
switchroot: mount failed: 22
umount /initrd-dev failed: 2
Kernel panic - no syncing: Attempted to kill init!

1. Does minimum installation not drop on a kernel or initrd with ext3 support? I can't imagine that's true, but have to ask.

2. The USB stick is single partition ext3. Maybe there is some limitation specifically related to USB stick booting that requires boot to be FAT16 or FAT32? Except the CentOS 5.5 installer refuses to let me install on either FAT.

3. How can I do the equivalent of lsmod on a linux installation that will not boot? i.e. I have CentOS x86_64 running in VirtualBox, I can plug the USB stick in there, so how do I get information on the USB stick's kernel and initrd if I can't boot from it?

4. Is it possible to rebuild the i386 based initrd on this USB stick, when the computer is not booted from that stick, with a system that's x86_64 based?

System Info:
Dell Latitude i686 Laptop which has run CentOS 5.5 and Fedora 12,13,14 in the past, and boots from Fedora 14 Live CD transferred to a USB stick. So I know USB booting is possible on this machine, and this stick.

The process of creating the stick:

CentOS 5.5 i386 on a USB stick. Old Dell i686 laptop which has previously run CentOS 5.5 installed from DVD, and has successfully booted from this same USB stick holding transferred Fedora 12,13,14 Live CDs. CentOS 5.5 was installed onto the USB drive directly by the CentOS 5.5 DVD installer (running virtualized in VirtualBox 4.02 on Mac OS X 10.6.5.). No errors or complaints during installation.

For whatever reason, the installer did not do some things correctly. First Grub wasn't working correctly, I got that sorted out and have the Grub+CentOS splash screen, it finds vmlinuz and the initrd, and then I get a kernel panic.

Ext3 was built into the kernel and that's why I'm getting this message. I do not know how the installer would have dropped a kernel or initrd during instalation that that don't contain such a basic thing that obviously comes in linux kernel 2.6.18-89 EL.

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?

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 - 2.6.35.4 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

[code]....

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?

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:

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)
