[SOLVED] Linux Integration Services 2.1 on Hyper-V R2

Post by cbach » 2011/01/12 22:10:58


I hope this is the right forum for this question.

I'm new to CentOS (or Linux for that matter) used to work with FreeBSD so please forgive any questions which seems stupid. :-)

I have read everything google gave me on this and all I could find in this forum on this matter. But no luck. :-(

This is the guide I found most usefull and detailed;

I have the latest CentOS 5.5 x64 with kernel 2.6.18-194.32.1.el5.
- Fully yum'ed.

And I followed the above mentioned guide to the letter. However I still get an error when trying to "make" the driver.

[quote]make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-194.32.1.el5-x86_64' done.
Your system DOES NOT support the timesource driver[/quote]

I have read several places, including on the guide linked above, that I just needed to install adjtimex.

But still no dice.

Do I have to configure adjtimex or something? The guide only states that I need to "yum install adjtimex".

I hope someone on here could give me a hint, because I'm really out of ideas on what to do.

Best regards,

This is solved!

Just needed to read the whole guide again. Even with this error during make. It will make install fine. (just remember to PATH /sbin)

I hope this might at least save someone else som time.

Also note:
DKMS package
The above will enable you to kernel upgrade without any kernel panics
