Wrong GCC version during compile?
Hi, I am trying to install submount on my Debian Sid machine. However even though it compiles cleanly and installs OK I can't insert the module.

Here is the dmesg output I get:


subfs: version magic '2.6.11-kanotix-10 preempt K7 gcc-4.0' should be '2.6.11-kanotix-10 preempt K7 gcc-3.3'
This doesn't look like a huge problem, as I have both GCC 4.0 and 3.3 installed.

The question is though, how can I select a compiler during configure and/or make that this software will be happy with?

make CC=/opt/gcc-2.95.3/bin/gcc

  make CC=/opt/gcc-2.95.3/bin/gcc install

Yeah, you need to make sure kernel modules are compiled with the same version of gcc as the kernel itself. The examples above allow you to do this.

Thanks guys, but I still don't quite get it.

I tried doing:

make CC=/opt/gcc-3.3/bin/gcc - as I think this is the version of GCC that the subfs module expects and is asking for (or at least it mentions GCC 3.3 above) - but it just spits out an error saying:


/submount-0.9/subfs-0.9# make CC=/opt/gcc-3.3/bin/gcc

I definately do have GCC 3.3 installed - and am using Debian Sid.

Where am I going wrong?

Bingo! I worked it out. It was just the wrong path to the GCC version I used to compile the kernel.

Thanks guys!
