Problem Building Kernels

Post by David Mab » Thu, 09 Nov 2000 11:25:35



Is there a fast way to fix a problem building kernel (I posted a few
days ago the details) - I have a identical server - the one I cloned to
make this one (and retired to the bench).  Should I just restore over?

There's a fast way, there's a slow way, and there's one that's just
right.

If you posted the details a few days ago, said details are
totally gone from most of our minds, and very few of us will take
the trouble to go searching for them.. if you had followed up
your original post, then at least this post would have had a
reference link.

The right way is:
        do not top-post
        do not quote signature blocks
        read Tony's reply

One more thing - did read your FAQ.

Sorry Tony - It did not get any replies - here it is:
I am trying to remake the kernel.  I get the following error:
"/var/opt/K/SCO/link/1.1.1Eb/etc/conf/pack.d/ksl/space.c", line 438:
illegal cha
racter: 043 (octal)

I could not find the real error.  Did verify the software, and fixed the
found problem.

An \043 is a "#", which is a comment in shell scripts but not in
C source.  There should be no "#"'s in that space.c that are not
immediately followed by "define" or "include" .  Why don't you
show us lines 435-440 from that file; maybe that will give a clue
as to what is going on here..

OK:  The code follows, but here are the first few lines:
/*
 * This file was automatically generated on
 * Mon Nov 6 18:26:30 EST 2000
 *
 * Do not edit by hand.  Use kslgen to make any desired
 * changes.
 */

======================================================================
435>>>

ksl_close(ksl_fds[0]);

Quote:}

k11atl#()
{
        __ksl_strcf_file = "k11atl#";
        /* function boot_atl0 */
        __ksl_strcf_fn = "boot->boot_atl0";
        /* function exit */
        __ksl_strcf_fn = "boot->boot_atl0->exit";
        __ksl_strcf_line = 29;
        ksl_panicflag = 1;
        /* function open */
        __ksl_strcf_fn = "boot->boot_atl0->open";

        ksl_fds[0] = ksl_open_dev(ksl_vars_dev_inet_ip);
        /* function noexit */
        __ksl_strcf_fn = "boot->boot_atl0->noexit";
        __ksl_strcf_line = 31;
        ksl_panicflag = 0;
        /* function atlas */
        __ksl_strcf_fn = "boot->boot_atl0->atlas";
        /* function open */
        __ksl_strcf_fn = "boot->boot_atl0->atlas->open";

I have tried to fix it, but it recreates each time.  /etc/kslgen is a
script that creates this file.

I solved the problem - I worked thru the kslgen file, and found that
there was an renamed entry with a pound in the /etc/strcf.d  - this file
was 11atl#, with the read file a sym link.  Seems when I did a fix up in
the past, it renamed this file, in a directory that includes all
drivers.  (Sorry for the top post, but wanted to get attn).

1. problem building kernel with ELF gcc 2.7.0


I've got the same problem here. I hope it's not the result of adding ELF
support at 4:30 in the morning. :)  Any suggestions?
