Kernel 2.6.6


When i started compiling new kernel with following command it gave me following error, but it is working fine with "make menuconfig" and "make config"

[root@akshar linux-2.6.6]# make xconfig

What might be the problem with the script "scripts/kconfig/qconf" ???

hi there

first of all u ned to use the command
#make mrproper

this ensures everything is in the rifgt place
then u need to rweun
#make xconfig

if u still getting the errors
maybe u should get the source again from kernel.org

regards

you are probably jmissing a dependency. this will not effect the finished kernel. use menuconfg to configure the kernel.

also... since you are compiling a new kernel, why not compile the latest 2.6.8... or atleast 2.6.7.

the 2.6.6 kernel has bugs in it which are fixed in 2.6.7 and 2.6.8. its not a major bug... it allows un-privilaged users to crash the system.

2.6.7 is probably the pick for noobies at the moment as 2.6.8.1 has some tricks to get cd burning to work.

hi

what make mrproper does it
deletes the temporary files then it checks the heirarchy of the code available

the solution to ur problem lies in getting urself a new source from kernel.org

The easiest way at this stage is to comment out two lines of code in

/usr/src/linux/drivers/block/scsi_ioctl.c

they are line 196 and 196 - so that it looks like...

/* if (verify_command(file, cmd))
return -EPERM;
*/

then recompile... you'll have to make clean or at least delete scsi_ioctl.o

Does anyone know if this has been resolved?? I am trying to cross compile a PPC kernel (2.6.6) on cygwin and I am having the same problem? or at least a very similiar problem:

$ make ARCH=ppc CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-604-linux-gnu- config
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
HOSTCC scripts/basic/split-include
HOSTCC scripts/basic/docproc
HOSTLD scripts/kconfig/conf
collect2: ld terminated with signal 11 [Segmentation fault], core dumped
scripts/kconfig/libkconfig.so(.text+0x0):crtstuff.c: multiple definition of `___do_sjlj_init'
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/3.3.3/crtbegin.o(.text+0x0):crtstuff.c: first defined here
make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/conf] Error 1
make: *** [config] Error 2

Should I move to the 2.6.7 kernel, or is there another resolution?

Thanks for your reply!!

I found someone who had the same problem when cross compiling for ARM. It is a problem with cygwin, specifically with the scripts/kconfig/Makefile. Cygwin cannot resolve the libkconfig.so dependency correctly. This need to be changed to libkconfig.o. A diff of the original and new Makefile shows this:

$ /usr/bin/diff Makefile.org Makefile
71,72c71,72
< conf-objs := conf.o libkconfig.so
< mconf-objs := mconf.o libkconfig.so
---
> conf-objs := conf.o libkconfig.o # libkconfig.so
> mconf-objs := mconf.o libkconfig.o # libkconfig.so
91c91,94
< clean-files := libkconfig.so lkc_defs.h qconf.moc .tmp_qtcheck \
---
> #clean-files := libkconfig.so lkc_defs.h qconf.moc .tmp_qtcheck \
> # .tmp_gtkcheck zconf.tab.c zconf.tab.h lex.zconf.c
>
> clean-files := libkconfig.o lkc_defs.h qconf.moc .tmp_qtcheck \
96a100
> HOSTCFLAGS_libkconfig.o := -I$(src)
107a112,114
> $(obj)/libkconfig.c: $(obj)/zconf.tab.c $(obj)/lex.zconf.c
> cp $< $@
>

Once I made the change, it configured without any problem.
