cradek: already up?
yeah, but busy, be back in a bit
hang on 5 secs
can you send me that page you had about compiling a new kernel?
I lost the link..
[13:18:17] <cradek> http://timeguy.com/cradek-files/emc/build-instructions
it's old but I think the kernel stuff is right
* alex_joni starts hacking away on a 2.6.15
btw those instructions are also on the wiki: http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?UbuntuBreezyPackages
anyone knows where the bootsplash is in ubuntu?
I built a new kernel, which boots alright, but it stay black during the bootphase
in 6.06? Not a clue
hmm.. seems I spotted a bug in make-kpkg ;-)
just for a minute
how's your kernel coming?
it's booted just nicely
was wondering if you can give me a bit of info on rtai now :)
your instructions aren't fully clear (at least not for 2am).. here's what I did
1. I apt-get source rtai-3.3 (the one you made)
2. used dch
3. changed debian/control (to read 2.6.15 instead of 2.6.12)
but I don't get any further..
make-kpkg --initrd --revision=xxxxx --stem=linux modules_image <- simply exits (after saying it processed the /usr/src/rtai-3.3 fine)
hmm.. I seem to be missing module-assistant
ok, that's one step further :)
but I am missing /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.15-magma/arch/i386/Makefile.cpu now :/
seems the headers package which was produces is missing some files
iirc I had to mess with make-kpkg to make a usable -headers package
yeah I remember that
oh.. wonder if you remember what you did..
alex_joni: I have other various changes but I think these are the changes to make a -headers package that can build modules
I see a changelog entry by Ben Collins (23.Nov.2005): "Include all Makefiles in kernel-headers package (Makefile*). Fixes i386 module builds against linux-headers (missing Makefile.cpu)."
wonder if he didn't do the same thing...
but it doesn't work?
looks like I also added some stuff in scripts
and fixed the /lib/modules/[version]/build symlink
and created an empty Modules.symvers
I don't think that patch will work
so in image.postinst, I commented out the block that removes that build symlink if the headers package doesn't install first
I see a completely different rules here
maybe you will have to hack it up too then
how do I apply that diff?
probably by hand
unless your file looks the same, it won't apply
but you can try patch<rules.diff
it doesn't really look the same
Hunk #1 FAILED at 2173.
Hunk #2 succeeded at 2205 (offset 20 lines).
Hunk #3 succeeded at 2493 (offset 20 lines).
better check to make sure where it put the changes made sense
seem ok, figured out #1 too
hope so at least :)
it must not be so different then
/usr/share/kernel-package/rules:2057: *** missing separator. Stop.
now you've done it
ok.. it's late :)
had an space at the beginning of the line, before the tab
same result :(
wonder if I need to make-kpkg clean ?
pastebin the area around line 2057?
or the whole file I guess
[23:52:39] <alex_joni> http://pastebin.com/756730
which line is 2057?
[23:53:45] <alex_joni> http://pastebin.com/756732
<- during the make-kpkg
I don't see anything wrong
is that the line you added by hand?
that and line 8
are you sure you have a tab now?
yeah, it doesn't cause any problems
it just doesn't put the Makefile.cpu in there
* alex_joni tries another hack
ok, think I nailed it
