Question 2.6.20.1 kernel_header problems


Im running etch and Im trying to get real time support so that I cam run jack and use multimedia packages like Adour and Rosegarden..Ive downloaded 2.6.20.1 kernel and build it following a few tutorials Ive read..the kernel boots and everything runs fine...but I need to build the kernel_headers so that I cam build the real time module..but Im having problems getting it to work..When I enter the revision name I named it it keep saying unknow target...

debian:/usr/src/linux-2.6.20.1# make-kpkg –initrd –-revision mutlimedia.1 kernel_headers...
Error: Unknown target –initrd Unknown target –-revision Unknown target mutlimedia.1 Unknown target kernel_headers...
use --targets to display help on valid targets.


I made sure and looked at file in source and it reads..

This is kernel package version 10.067.
VERSION = 2
PATCHLEVEL = 6
SUBLEVEL = 20
EXTRAVERSION = .1
KPKG_SELECTED_MODULES =
Debian Revision = mutlimedia.1
KPKG_ARCH =
do_parallel =
fast_dep =

anyone know what im doing wrong??thats the name i gave it multimedia.1

Use dotted numbers for your revision. e.g. "0.1" "1.3" etc. And I agree, by the way, a lot of media is "mutli"

thanks..i finally just went and built kernel and the headers using...

make-kpkg -initrd --revision=386 kernel_image kernel_headers modules_image

i installed the kernel and kernel headers and rebooted and everything hardware wise was working..but i still cant get real time module to build..i tried module-assistant..and make config but all i get is error ..

Failed: Security Capabilities not configured as module
Realtime LSM will not work with /usr/src/linux
Please rerun `make config' on the kernel and try again.

i have recompiled the kernel like 3 times..maybe im missing something??I only saw 2 section where there were options dealing with real time..in the drivers section under rtc..and in section where you can choose your cpu type..section for low latency...I couldnt find anything any where else in the config that had anything to do with realtime..

I cant build anything..tried to build fglrx from source and it errors out which it never had before..so i dont know if the kernel headers arent properly installed..i dont know...they both installed fine with no errors or warning of such..

Run "make menuconfig" (or make xconfig or whichever you use) and go to "Device Drivers"->"Character Devices"

Make sure the following are enabled
Enhanced Real Time Clock Support
Generic /dev/rtc emulation
Extended RTC operation

"I cant build anything..tried to build fglrx from source and it errors out which it never had before..so i dont know if the kernel headers arent properly installed..i dont know...they both installed fine with no errors or warning of such.."

You may have to run "./configure", then "make clean", and then finally "make".


Are you sure that fglrx will work with 2.6.20? If you get a compile error like "INIT_WORK too many parameters" then it won't.
