Thread: 2.6.14 - Kernel does not compile

  1. 2.6.14 - Kernel does not compile

    Hello,
    having just set-up a new sarge unstable system with minimal setup I
    installed the kernel-sources and went out to compile the kernel:

    athlon-xp:/usr/src/linux# make modules_install
    if [ -r System.map -a -x /sbin/depmod ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F System.map
    2.6.14.2-skas3-v8.2; fi

    So - what's that for an error-message? Google didn't find anything related.

    and
    make bzImage
    ends with this:

    arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.c:67: error: invalid application of 'sizeof' to
    incomplete type 'struct tss_struct'
    arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.c:71: warning: implicit declaration of function
    '__fix_to_virt'
    arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.c:71: error: 'FIX_VSYSCALL' undeclared (first
    use in this function)
    make[1]: *** [arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s] Error 1
    make: *** [prepare0] Error 2

    All I need is a kernel that is small and compact - which the regular
    kernel-image is not. I'm compiling my own kernels since quite a while, but
    never had that kind of error.

    Help me , please!

    You might want to take a look at make-kpgk.

    Thank you very much!

    I didn't understand much of it, but it gave me the idea to use unstable's
    kernel-source archive and not the one from kernel.org - and for whatever
    reason: Now it compiles.
