After some years of not using Linux I want to upgrade the old version
0.99.14 to the
newer version 2.0.27, but I've a problem to compile the new kernel. The
stops with the following message:
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes
-O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strength-
reduce -pipe -m486 -DCPU=486 -E -D__GENKSYMS__ ksyms.c |
/sbin/genksyms: No such file or directory
cpp: output pipe has been closed
make: *** [../include/linux/modules/ksyms.ver] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux/kernel'
It seems that make is missing the file /sbin/genksyms and I couldn't
find it on my system.
What does the command do? Do I need it? If yes, where can I get it?
Would appreciate any answer that solve the problem.
