kernel help


i got the linux-2.6.9 from kernel.org
than tar to /usr/src
ln -s linux-2.6.9 linux
cd linux
make menuconfig
Then i choose saa7134 as module
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
when i say

make install it just screws up it . It cant find couple of directories and gives errors. I believe if i recompile it should be ok.

you don't need to do all that for 2.6.x.

make menuconfig, choose your options, then:

make && make modules_install

instead of make install, copy the kernel to your /boot directory manually after it's compiled:

cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9
cp System.map /boot

(i *think* you need cp the system.map. i do everytime anyway and it doesn't seem to hurt anything.)

then add the new kernel to lilo or grub, rerun lilo, and you should be good to go.

Make install works fine for me. What errors are you getting?

And please do not crosspost your questions in the future. It is easier to read if all the comments are in one place. (Reference: other thread )

i can't say this will help or that i even know what the problem is, but if it were me, i would save my .config file, nuke the directory, download a new copy of the kernel source (or better, get 2.6.10, the latest stable), and try again with a fresh kernel directory.

there used to be some option for "select only drivers that don't require compile time external firmware," but i don't recall where it is in the 2.6 kernel. maybe that has something to do with it? just thinking out loud.
