bzimage


Hello,

I'm trying to get an LFS distrib runnig. I just have a problem.

I'm at Chapter 8. Making the LFS system bootable on page Installing linux-2.4.18

And this is my problem on this page is written: Note: the arch/i386/boot/bzImage path may vary on different platforms.

I'm runnig a Mandrake 8.1 in the /boot directory I only have lilo-graphic lilo-menu lilo-text lilo is linked to lilo-graphic and boot.b is linked to lilo-graphic/boot.b i d'ont have any bzimage file. What file should I use boot.b or another?

Thanks

Those are totally different files. At this point don't concern yourself with what is in /boot. We're compiling a kernel so you definitely have to get the bzImage from /usr/src/linux. The exact path varies per platform like the book says. It could be /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage or in /usr/src/linux/alpha/boot and so on.

Did you run "make bzImage" from within /usr/src/linux-2.4.8 ?

Were there any other messages, such as an error message from 'ifconfig' before you saw the "exited with return value of 7" message?

This means the kernel doesn't know about eth0. It means that the driver for your network card was not compiled into the kernel (or you selected the wrong driver).

If you compiled it as a module, you need to "insmod" it before you run the network script. You can add the insmod commadn to the network script if you like.

Add what ? The driver to the kernel or the insmod command?

Neither. Whatever is most convenient for you.

if you want it in the kernel, just select the proper driver.

If you want a module and need to add an insmod command, here's how it can be done:

#!/bin/bash
# Begin $rc_base/init.d/network - Network Control Script

# Based on ethnet script from LFS-3.1 and earlier.
# Rewritten by Gerard Beekmans - gerard@linuxfromscratch.org

source /etc/sysconfig/rc
source $rc_functions
source /etc/sysconfig/network

case "$1" in
start)
insmod network_card_driver_here
and the rest of the network script as normal
