Description Georgi Chulkov 2006-12-24 05:41:28 UTC
When emerging app-cdr/cdemu-0.8 with gentoo-sources-2.6.19-r2 and linux-headers-2.6.17-r2, the cdemu kernel module compiles with a warning about an implicitly defined symbol generic_file_read(). This is a function that was removed from Linux 2.6.17. Although the package emerges fine, the module cannot be inserted because of the missing symbol. The fix is to replace the calls to generic_file_read with do_sync_read ().

I just emerged cdemu-0.8 and it doesn't seem like this bug is fixed.  When I run 'modprobe cdemu', dmesg still reports this:

cdemu: Unknown symbol generic_file_read
Comment 4 Georgi Chulkov 2007-02-26 07:30:27 UTC
Well, it seems one of us will have to provide an updated ebuild with the patch - something I currently don't know how to do. :(

Patch works, module applies.

Test for yourself.

Works well here. Thanks.

I also confirm the patch works.
Comment 9 Bjoern Thorwirth 2007-05-25 12:55:33 UTC
the patch works, but why is the old cdemu build still in portage??

Comment 10 Leo 2007-06-12 09:00:40 UTC
everything seems to work for me too...
maybe it is time to add the cdemu-0.8-r1 masked or not... :-)

Comment 12 Carsten Milkau 2007-10-11 13:47:16 UTC
This is a new problem introduced by changes in 2.6.22 I think. Apparently the prototype for invalidate_bdev changed, it's probably as easy to fix as the previous problem, but I don't have the skills do to it I think. Let's hope for a volunteer =)

Please bump this to something working or punt the useless junk that hasn't compiled/worked for over a year.

vapier, do you need more time to handle bug 209874 or would you just prefer this gone? it's up to you really.
Comment 16 Marcelo Goes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-17 00:56:17 UTC

People have made a good effort crafting ebuilds for the 1.0.0 bump in bug 198672. It might help.

Comment 17 Marcelo Goes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-20 02:37:18 UTC
Guys, 1.0.0 is now in cvs. I hope it works ok now!
