Heavy problems getting a RTLinux patched kernel


Hi everyone,

This is the first time I post to "LinuxQuestions.org".

I need to install RTLinux. I have searched a lot about the proccess of patching and compiling a Linux kernel with RTLinux (also here, in LinuxQuestions.org), but I always get syntax and undefined references errors at compile time.

I have tried with 2.2.19, 2.4.0, 2.4.0-test1, 2.4.4, 2.4.18 and 2.4.24 kernel sources and I haven't been able to finish the whole proccess with none of them. It seems that there are some errors in the code.

I'm using the "rtlinux" package in Debian SID, on a PIII.

Do anyone knows about the existence of a Linux kernel source that compiles without problems?

Thanks for your help and regards,

Guillermo

Simple and often overlooked mistake ..

HI Guillermo,

> I always get syntax and undefined references errors at compile time.

This is because of the newer and "stricter" gcc compiler you're using.
To solve your problem, you've gotta download kgcc (or get it from the
older RedHat Linux (7.1) CDs).

And do mention kgcc as the default cross-compiler during (before) the
make process. You can do this by editing the makefile in the directory
of your linux source.

And hey .. there are no errors in the code; the problem is with your
compiler - fix it.
