Kernel recompile fail

Post by tangi » 2014/04/05 10:42:12

Hi,

Kernel compile worked in the past, I don't know why not anymore.

Code: Select all

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/kcompil/rpmbuild/BUILD/kernel-2.6.18/xen'
+ install -m 644 xen.gz /var/tmp/kernel-2.6.18-348.18.1.el5.centos.plus.ufs.1-root/boot/xen.gz-2.6.18-348.18.1.el5.centos.plus.ufs.1

I'd hazard a guess that the file it copies to .config is not correct. Look at configs/kernel-2.6.18-x86_64.config and see if it needs amendment.

thanks for your reply :D , I tried to compile a unmodified .config by just running make menuconfig then saved, added # x86_64 in the .config file, I followed the tutorial as described on http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Custom_Kernel.

here is the content of build-err.log

Code: Select all

+ cd linux-2.6.18-308.24.1.el5test1.x86_64
+ BuildKernel bzImage x86

+ '[' -n '' ']'

+ DevelDir=/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-308.24.1.el5test1-x86_64
+ DevelLink=
+ KernelVer=2.6.18-308.24.1.el5test1

it says

Code: Select all

+ Config=kernel-2.6.18-x86_64.config
+ DevelDir=/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-308.24.1.el5test1-x86_64
+ DevelLink=
+ KernelVer=2.6.18-308.24.1.el5test1
+ echo BUILDING A KERNEL FOR x86_64...
+ perl -p -i -e 's/^EXTRAVERSION.*/EXTRAVERSION = -308.24.1.el5test1/' Makefile
+ make -s mrproper
+ cp configs/kernel-2.6.18-x86_64.config .config
I checked the devel dir and it doesn't exist.

In the CentOS wiki article you referenced, there is a line that says:
First run make oldconfig. Now you should run either make menuconfig, .....
When you ran make oldconfig, did you get the prompt back without having to answer any question? Just to be sure, run the command twice.
