I enabled the Intel Audio Support in the Sound section, using the Linux Kernel Configurator in KDE Control Center.I opened a Konsole, typed:# cd /usr/src/linux# make dep clean bzImage modules modules_installcompile failed here:make all_targetsmake[3]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-r5/drivers/net'gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-r5/include  -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686    -c -o eepro100.o eepro100.cgcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-r5/include  -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686    -c -o Space.o Space.cgcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-r5/include  -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686    -c -o setup.o setup.cgcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-r5/include  -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686    -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -c net_init.cgcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-r5/include  -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686    -c -o loopback.o loopback.cIn file included from loopback.c:51:/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-r5/include/net/sock.h:739: size of array `__pad' is too largemake[3]: *** [loopback.o] Error 1make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-r5/drivers/net'make[2]: *** [first_rule] Error 2make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-r5/drivers/net'make[1]: *** [_subdir_net] Error 2make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-r5/drivers'make: *** [_dir_drivers] Error 2
Comment 1 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-03-05 00:33:02 UTC
maybe see if it happens with a stock 2.4.17 kernel?
Comment 2 duncan_lissett 2002-03-06 12:17:49 UTC
Sorry, you need to spell out in single syllable words ;-)What do you suggest I do to get more debug info / fix this?
Comment 3 duncan_lissett 2002-03-06 18:51:15 UTC
Duh!!You mean why don't I just use  build-ix86-1.0_rc6-r17.iso      04-Mar-2002 02:50  16.9M Because I thought I could change the config and recompile.Having managed to bootstrap and build gentoo linux, I thought that was how kernel updates were merged into an existing gentoo linux system?Sorry to waste your time with this newbie Linux stuff.As I understand more I see that I could probably configure Gentoo Linux to give something more like Trustix Secure Linux.
Comment 4 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-03-15 01:21:17 UTC
I mean try a standard 2.4.17 kernel (from Linus).  See if you still have problems.
Comment 5 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-03-19 16:39:22 UTC
this is *probably* fixed.  No reply to my comment.
