Help: having problem compile kernel v1.1.18

Post by Thomas Tr » Mon, 10 Oct 1994 21:34:48

Hi netters,

        I have been using Slackware 1.0 for awhile now and finally have the
change to update it to version 2.01.  I am very impress with the IMPROVEMENT
of version 2.01.  However, I am having a bit of problem compiling the kernel.
When I try to recompile the kernel, it gave me this error message:

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-1.1.18/lib'
ld  -Ttext 100000 boot/head.o init/main.o tools/version.o \
        kernel/kernel.o mm/mm.o fs/fs.o net/net.o ipc/ipc.o \
        fs/filesystems.a \

net/net.o: Undefined symbol _net_bh referenced from text segment
make: *** [tools/zSystem] Error 1                                          

        The kernel is the one that come with slackware 2.01 and patched with
quota 1.33.  I'll be really appreciated for any help on this.  Many thanks
in advance.



1. >1024 cyl, v1.1.18, boot problems

        Okay, The install went okay, now to the fun part:

        Using the boot disk that it made AFTER the install, it does'nt recognize the drive, I have a 1Gig (2099cyl,16hd,63sec)
and the error that comes up,

        [st506] unable to access drive /dev/hda
                (506 cyl, 64 hd, 16 sec]

        and some other errors that lead to the big extended registers display and halting.

        If I use the sbpcd boot disk, and enter

        boot: mount root=/dev/hda2 hd=2099,16,63

        It does go in, but gives me errors referencing that "hda2" is an unknown parameter. No big deal, I get in, but it tells me
the version of UMSDOS is v0.2, and the FTAPE is for UMSDOS v0.3.  Soooo, I recompile the whole kernel, and make a boot disk
according to the howto's and faqs, it gets to the point where I get the drive geometry errors.

        I've been told to add      append="hd=2099,16,63"   to the lilo stanza somewhere, but when I try to use the liloconfig
utility, it gives me an error when it tries to write to the floppy.

        Where exactly on the boot floppy can I tell it that the drive is   hd=2099,16,63   and have lilo work properly???

        Everything else works fine once I get in, this is the only problem I'm having now.  The docs, faqs, howto's have been
great, but I've yet to get this boot thing taken care of.
