Have you compiled a SCSI kernel?


I have no problems with multiple versions of bare.i. However, I have a scsi server and need to compile a kernel. I have tried scis.s 2.4.31, scsi2.s 2.4.31, scsi.s 2.4.29 with no success. The same compiler commands that work under bare.i, such as make menuconfig, make dep, make clean, etc. all work under bare.i, but all fail under scsi.s. Am I doing something wrong for scsi.s?

I'm not quite sure I understand what you're trying to say...

You installed the box using one of the original scsi kernels,
but you can't compile a 2.4.31? What has one got to do with
the other? All you need to do is copy /boot/config-<which-
ever-version-boots-the-box> to /usr/src/linux-2.4.31/.config,
run make oldconfig and off you go ...


Cheers,
Tink

When I run the Nvidia installer, it determines that there is no precompiled kernel that supports the card. It then attempts to compile a new kernel. It always fails. So, to troubleshoot, I attempted to compile the existing kernel with make menuconfig, make dep, make clean, etc. They also failed. If I can get the make commands the compile a working kernel, then, I can run the Nvidia installer again and it should compile the new kernel supporting scsi and the Nvidia card.

As a further troubleshooting step, I ran all of these compile commands on a bare.i system. They worked fine. That is why I believe there is a specific problem compiling a scsi kernel. However, since scsi.s will install from the distribution cd and support the scsi card, something got this kernel working.

So, am I confused or on the right track?

I think there's something else wrong, I've successfully compiled
more than one SCSI kernel on Slackware boxen of all kinds of controllers
and several versions of Slackware (not 10.2 or current yet).

As for the "they failed" it would be really helpful if you described
what happens there, or maybe even posted the error message(s) you
get; from the things you said so far all I know is that you have some
sort of a problem when compiling a scsi-kernel but no hint as to what
may be wrong.


Cheers,
Tink
