Error In Compiling Kernel-2.1.43

Error In Compiling Kernel-2.1.43

Post by Habibie Sumar » Sat, 21 Jun 1997 04:00:00


I have upgraded my pentium box with Redhat-4.2 and some utilities and
libraries in order to be compatible in compling the experimental linux
kernel v2.1.  Everthing went OK, except at the linking stage the
compilation crashed as follows:

ld -m elf_i386 -T /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/ -e stext arch/i386/kernel/head.o arch/i386/kernel/init_task.o init/main.o init/version.o arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o arch/i386/mm/mm.o kernel/kernel.o mm/mm.o fs/fs.o ipc/ipc.o fs/filesystems.a net/network.a drivers/block/block.a drivers/char/char.a drivers/pnp/pnp.a drivers/net/net.a drivers/scsi/scsi.a drivers/cdrom/cdrom.a drivers/pci/pci.a /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/lib/lib.a /usr/src/linux/lib/lib.a /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/lib/lib.a -o vmlinux

drivers/char/char.a(wdt.o): In function `wdt_init':
wdt.o(.text.init+0x9b): undefined reference to `boot_notifier_list'
wdt.o(.text.init+0xa4): undefined reference to `boot_notifier_list'

Does anyone know if I am missing some utilities or libraries upgrades?



1. ncpfs fails to compile after kernel v2.1.43

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII


my system is Linux 2.0.30, gcc v2.7.2.1,

i cannot compile ncpfs in any kernel after 2.1.43. the only change to
ncpfs at this point is in inode.c. reverting to the inode.c in 2.1.43
does not allow ncpfs in 2.1.44 to compile so the change must be some
place else, likely in a header file i suspect.

here's the error i get when trying to compile:

gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -D__SMP__ -pipe -fno-strength-reduce -m486 -DCPU=486 -D__SMP__  -c -o inode.o inode.c
inode.c: In function `ncp_read_super':
inode.c:237: structure has no member named `s_mounted'
make[3]: *** [inode.o] Error 1
