kernel 2.4.0

Is there a problem building 2.4.0 (from kernel.org) on the powerpc?  I
am continually getting an assembler error.  Incidentally I get the same
error on an intel machine.

On Intel it should work, on PPC it doesn't. My guess has always been
that the PPC patches will be merged into the official tree somewhere
between 2.4.3 and 2.4.5.

After rsyncing the paulus kernel I was able to build the 2.4.0 kernel.  When

I attempted to boot the kernel I got a bunch of file system errors.  The
kernel
mounted root (in rw according to <mount>) but was dumped into a single user
maintenance prompt.  I did not run fsck manually as it the drive was working

fine under 2.2.18.  Are there "minimum requirments" for mount, dev,
fileutils, or
any other packages to work with the 2.4.0 kernel?

I had the same trouble. Fixed it by updating by rsync from the Paulus
source tree. Either at ppc.samba.org::linux-pmac-devel or the mirror at
penguinppc.org::linux-2.4.0-paulus

Seems to me that you enabled devfs support (or didn't disable it) without
first installing and setting up devfsd.  You can either install devfsd
(which is my suggestion), or compile the kernel without devfs support.

Good luck,

That worked.  I just disabled devfs as I don't really want to go through setting
it up and not having it work at this moment in time.  Thank you for your help.

1. aha1542, module vs kernel, kernel doesn't work, need kernel

The reason I need it as kernel code is so that I can put /usr on a
seperate 8.2g drive.

When aha1542 is built as a module, it pops up immediately before the
login screen, and everything works as planned.

Remaking the kernel with it set to be kernel code, it starts the bus
scan during the boot, not too long after the ide devices are found, but
then goes into a double loop of resetting the device 2-4 times, then the
whole bus, then repeats the device, all the while saying it can't abort
the call, but evertually it will find the drive at address 0 on the bus
and go on, at which point it repeats this procedure for address one,
each pass thru the loop taking about 5 minutes, finding the quatum 8.2g
at each addreess in turn until it gets to address 4, at which point the
discovery phase eventually finds a Colorado T4000s at address 4, which
is its correct address, then also at 5 & 6.

Then it apparently repeats the loop, asking each device for its capacity
details, and going through this same error recovery time killer, except
that this time it only gets partial answers only, and only at the
correct address for the device.

I let it go through all that, and finally got a login screen and did so,
but was unable to open either device, not even with fdisk /dev/sda.

I've used several of these cards in years past, and have always had to
edit the source to lower the address of its port by 0x100, to the 0x230
area, and to reset the irq from 11 to 10.  Without those changes the
module doesn't init itself, ever, and it has required those changes to
the code in order to function on 3 different motherboards I've run it
on.

But here, I need the direct in the kernel version so I can put /usr on
it.  Put it in the kernel, and it fails miserably, both for 2.2.18,
2.2.19, and 2.4.2.  The 2.4.2 failure surprised me as that code has a
diff that looks to be in excess of 10k from the older code.

So why can't I put aha1542.o into the (apparently any) kernel?
Inquiring minds want to know. (-;

Cheers, Gene
