rpmbuild and kernel source code problem


Hi everyone,

I have a linux kickstart and installing it on HP DL380 servers. On installing rpm for ethernet controller card I am getting the following error

[root ~]# rpm -ivh e1000-7.6.15a-1.src.rpm
error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

After I create the directory the rpm is installed.

In the instructions for installing this rpm it was mentioned to build the kernel. But I am getting the following error

[root redhat]# rpmbuild -bb SPECS/e1000.spec
-bash: rpmbuild: command not found

[root ~]# cd /usr/src/redhat/
[root redhat]# ll
total 16
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Sep 1 20:11 SOURCES
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Sep 1 20:11 SPECS

Here is some information about the setup
[root redhat]# uname -r
2.6.9-42.ELsmp

[root ~]# ll /usr/src/
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Sep 1 20:11 redhat

Can you please help me with the above problem and provide the steps to install the kernel source code?

First thing first,
Quote:
[root redhat]# rpmbuild -bb SPECS/e1000.spec
-bash: rpmbuild: command not found
Try below commands for checking whether you are having rpmbuild command installed or not.
which rpmbuild
whereis rpmbuild

If you are not having rpmbuild command, download the necessary rpm and install it. rpmbuild may be part of rpm development packages.

Second thing, I dont think for installing NIC driver, you need to build kernel. It should be something like "Building rpm for ethernet driver using your kernel source." The same is supported at ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/softwa....15a-1.src.txt.

For that, you need to download source rpm for kernel 2.6.9-42.ELsmp and install it, so it will copy necessary directories at required location.
After that build the rpm for ethernet driver.

One strange thing is that, there are not precompiled rpm for the driver.

Hi
Thanks. I was able to get the rpmbuild command by installing the rpmbuild rpm.
As for the second problem I was not able to find kernel-2.6.9-42.ELsmp rpm, but kernel-2.6.9-42.EL is already installed on the server.
I downloaded the linux-2.6.9.tar.gz and extracted it as mentioned in the document. Since the uname -r is 2.6.9-ELsmp so, I copied the linux-2.6.9 to linux2.6.9-42ELsmp .I was able to execute the configure the kernel source code. But in the command
[root redhat]# rpmbuild -bb SPECS/e1000.spec
Some errors are comming. I am attaching the logs of the command

One more thing is that the version.h is being searched in /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build/include/linux/version.h.

Check out below:

1. In this particular codition, don't go for linux-2.6.9.tar.gz. As it may contain different version than 2.6.9-42.
Quote:
As for the second problem I was not able to find kernel-2.6.9-42.ELsmp rpm, but kernel-2.6.9-42.EL is already installed on the server.
Check whether it was Complied kernel rpm or Source kernel rpm.
# rpm -qa | grep kernel
# rpm -ql kernel-2.6.9-42.EL | more ( If this is displaying /lib/modules & /boot directories , then it is complied rpm, not the source one )
# rpm -ql kernel-2.6.9-42.EL.src | more ( If this is showing files in /usr/src/redhat, then it is a source rpm)

2.Have you gone through this steps, mentioned in README ?
<---------------------Start-------------------------->
Red Hat installation:
If the /usr/src/linux-<kernel-version> directory
does not exist, install the kernel source code per
Red Hat instructions. Once installed, follow the
commands listed below to configure the kernel source
to match the running kernel.

# cd /usr/src/linux-<kernel_version>
# make mrproper
# make -e KERNELRELEASE=`uname -r` oldconfig
# make -e KERNELRELEASE=`uname -r` dep

<---------------------End-------------------------->

3.
Quote:
One more thing is that the version.h is being searched in /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build/include/linux/version.h.
Not much sure, but it should not search /lib/modules/, it should search /usr/src/redhat/ directory for the version.h.

Get back to us if still facing problems.

Hi,

Actually why I am doing all this is because earlier in our servers we used to have to have HP NC340T ethernet controller cards and for that our kickstart CD was sufficient, but now the hardware has been changed to HP NC364T and the ethernet ports are not being recognized by the rpm we used to install as part of our kickstart installation.

So if you have any other suggestions how we can detect those ethernet ports please suggest, as I want minimal changes in my kickstart CD?

I checked currently the e1000 driver is available in the kernel and its version is 7.0.33-k2-NAPI. However the hardware doesnot support this. So can you tell me how to upgrade the driver?

I was able to install the e1000 driver and the ethernet ports were also being detected.
But the problem remaining is how to include the rpms's in my kickstart because when I included the required package it didnot install them.
Also another problem that is now occuring is that the ifcfg-eth<2,3,4,5> files are not being created by default at /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ .

Please advise me how to include in kickstart and gow to create default files for all the interfaces after OS?
