: I am having serious trouble re-compiling the kernel. I have the
: latest SLS with 0.99p12 kernel, and am quite aware that the
: source include with this will not compile. However, I downloaded
: 99p13 with patch, and installed it, along with snd-driv-2.0 from
: sunsite, and I still have serious problems compiling (loop.c
: , actually blk.h, gives me "unknown block device"). Is there
: (actually I have heard of) FAQ for kernel compiling,, but can't
: seem to locate them. Could someone either give me some pointer
: or point me to a FAQ. Thank!
Instead of trying to use the patches, try installing the full sources:
the sources can be ftp'd from ftp.funet.fi or one it's mirror sites
the file name is: linux-0.99.13.tar.gz
once you've download this file unzip it with gzip -d and cleaned the directory
tree (make a backup copy of the dir tree if possible, just in case)..
you can unzip, untar and then compile the patch level 13 code.
to clean the tree:
rm -r -f *
cd ???? (where ever you downloaded the new source file too)
gzip -d linux-0.99.13.tar
tar xvf /???/linux-0.99.13.tar
^^^^^------------------------where ever the file is
after this the new kernel should compile fine -- also reinstall any add ons
such as the sound drivers, etc.. that are located in the directory tree
Hope this helps
