Kernel 2.5.5-15 Rh6 ftape compile

Kernel 2.5.5-15 Rh6 ftape compile

Post by Stefan Viljoe » Tue, 18 Jul 2000 04:00:00



Hi!

I am trying to compile ftape-4.02 on the 2.5.5-15 RedHat 6 kernel - I am
getting various redifintion warnings and there is a structure called
"current" that lacks a certain member:

In file included from /usr/src/linux/include/linux/config.h,
                 from fdc-io.c:31:
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/autoconf.h:861: warning: 'CONFIG_FT_NR_BUFFERS"
redefined
*Initialization*:1: warning: this is the location of the previous definition
fdc-io.c: In function "fdc_interrupt_wait":
fdc-io.c:433: structure has no member named 'timeout'
fdc-io.c:454: structure has no member named 'timeout'\
make[2]: *** [fdc-io.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory
'/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/ftape-4.02/ftape/lowlevel'
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/ftape-4.02/ftape'
make: *** [install] Error 2

I managed to silence the

/usr/src/linux/include/linux/autoconf.h:861: warning: 'CONFIG_FT_NR_BUFFERS"
redefined

by commenting the relevant line in autoconf.h - is this good or "bad" to do?
It has a value of 3 in my install.

As for the "fdc-io.c:433: structure has no member named 'timeout'" I have
looked at the source and surmised that there is a structure called "current"
that lacks this "timeout" member. Any idea where I can find this structure
definition? Is it part of ftape or the kernel sources? What type of variable
is this "current" variable?

I am trying to get ftape compiled in order to use an Iomega DittoMax Pro
with the dittoDash DX accelerator card (PCI?)

Any replies appreciated!

Fanx,

Stefan Viljoen

2.5.5-15??
That must be a highly experimental kernel surely??

The last major version is 2.2.x and I believe 2.4.x is the next (not
sure if it's out yet).

Anyways, if you want a working system I suggest you check the status of
that kernel version, if you do want to tinker with experimental versions
I'd advise you to check out developers ng's.

http://www.csd.uu.se/~mikpe/linux/ftape/ contains patches for compiling
ftape-4.03-pre2 in 2.2.16 and 2.4.0-test2. While there's no patch for
whatever kernel RH6.2 ships as default, the 2.2.16 patch should work.
(No update for 2.4.0-test4 yet; BKL changes require careful analysis.)

Or you might want to try the new official ftape-4.03 from Heine's web site;
I had no luck compiling it however so I'm sticking with 4.03-pre2 for now.

1. NAT implementation on a RH6.0 (kernel 2.2.5-15) box

Hi everyone.

I'd like to implement NAT service on my box.

Could you help me telling me a complete step-by-step guide (download, kernel
compile options, module, command reference, etc.).

I heard somethjing about "ipmasqadm": I cannot find it in my distribution
(rh 6.0). Where should I download it?

TIA
