kernel-recompilation due to network-problems

Post by Erich Webe » Sat, 23 Jan 1999 04:00:00


I'm using a (SuSE) Linux-system with Kernel 2.0.33. Now I need a new
Kernel - version 2.0.36.

I followed all instructions to configure it. "make dep" and "make clean"
worked fine, but "make zImage" cancels with the following message:

gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.0.36.SuSE/include -V2.7.2.3 -Wall -Wstri
rototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strength-reduce -pipe -m486 -malign-
s=2 -malign-jumps=2 -malign-functions=2 -DCPU=586  -c -o init/main.o

gcc: installation problem, cannot exec `cc1': No such file or directory
cpp: output pipe has been closed
make: *** [init/main.o] Error 1

Maybe I should mention, that I used a source-code patch for an olicom
tokenring-card (olicom-2.0.36). But this source-code patch could be applied
without problems.

How can I run the "make zImage" sucessfully?

Thank you!



1. Problems regarding crypto filesystem after kernel recompilation

Dear Linux experts,

Why oh why didn't I observe the old "never touch a running system" rule?
Now I have apparently done something stupid and recompiled a SuSE 2.4.10
Kernel with crypto filesystem options.

I allready had the standard SuSE Kernel (2.4.10-4GB) running like a
charm, but I thought it was a bit too "fat", loaded with lots of stuff I
never need (like USB support etc.)

My /home Partition was encrypted using the loop0 device and twofish

I have now set the compile options


directly into the kernel, since I need it all the time anyhow.

However after a reboot I cannto access my /home partition any more. When
I try to mount it manually using "mount -t ext3 /dev/loop0 /home" I get

wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
or too many mounted file systems

error message. What did I do wrong? I do hope there is a non-destructive
way to get access to my /home partition again!

I don't dare issuing a "losetup -e twofish /dev/loop0 /dev/hdb5" command,
since it says all data on /dev/hdb5 will be lost.

Any help eagerly awaited and welcome!
