Upgrading to 3.1-stable

Upgrading to 3.1-stable

Post by Martin Goldma » Sat, 24 Aug 2002 08:38:22



Hello,

I'm planning to upgrade to 3.1-stable (from 3.1-release.) I have downloaded
the patch tree via cvs. However, I have recompiled several of the binaries
(with custom options, etc) -- will these changes be lost when I rebuild the
binaries?

Thanks,
Martin

Yes.  Unless you made the changes to the makefile, or the source.  If your
customization is on disk, it should stay there after an update.  If you
manually interfered with building somehow, then you might have to do so
again.

1. Cant find errno.h while upgrading 3.1-stable (to 3.1-stable)

I cvs'ed a new stable source tree. I made a new kernel.

While making the new binutils I get an error. The upgrade minifaq
says:
-----------------
 # cd /usr/src/gnu/egcs/libiberty
  # make -f Makefile.bsd-wrapper cleandir
  # make -f Makefile.bsd-wrapper obj
  # make -f Makefile.bsd-wrapper depend
  # make -f Makefile.bsd-wrapper
  # make -f Makefile.bsd-wrapper install
-----------------

But it quits during "make -f Makefile.bsd-wrapper depend"
It quits with this error:
/usr/src/gnu/egcs/libiberty/rename.c:6: errno.h: No such file or
directory
*** Error code 1

I checked for this file:
myhostname# ls -l /usr/include/errno.h
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  bin  11 Jun 28 09:27 /usr/include/errno.h -> sys/errno.h
myhostname# ls -l /usr/include/sys
myhostname#

The /usr/include/sys directory is empty.

What should be in this directory, and how do I get it there? Or
am I doing something else wrong?
