Discussion:
building the voyage kernel

Hi,

I am currently using the experimental build of voyage because I want to use
open 802.11s which only comes with the latest kernel. However, I also want
to try out Layer 2 batman or batman experimental which requires the kernel
headers. As there are no headers for my kernel (2.6.30-486-voyage) I am
trying to build them from the kernel-source. I am following the instructions
found here [1]. When I do my make, I get the following error:

CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
SYMLINK include/asm -> include/asm-x86
CALL scripts/checksyscalls.sh
CHK include/linux/compile.h
dnsdomainname: Unknown host
LZMA arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.bin.lzma
lzma: Cannot allocate memory
LD arch/x86/boot/compressed/piggy.o
ld: arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.bin.lzma: No such file: No such file or
directory
make[2]: *** [arch/x86/boot/compressed/piggy.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux] Error 2
make: *** [bzImage] Error 2

It seems that the ALIX boards with 256 MB/s of memory cannot create
"arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.bin.lzma" becuase they run out of memory.
Has anyone on this list encountered this problem before? I would prefer not
to cross compile as it seems a little complicated when I just want to
install batman-advanced. Can anyone give me some suggestions? Am I doing
everything correctly?

Thanks
Dave

How about adding swap space on a USB disk (assuming it is an out of
memory issue)? When I build software for a Voyage system I always do
it on an external disk to save wear on the CF card.

I ask this because I'm thinking about compiling a real-time Voyage

Thanks for the replies.
Jon: I will try your suggestion.
Nick: I think you are correct but I have problems cross compiling across
architectures. At this stage I would prefer not to cross compile.

The ALIX boards are standard x86, so there should not be any cross
compiling issues. Of course be careful not to enable features that are
not present on the Geodes.

If you really want to compile on the actual Alix itself, I use a
swapfile. If all you want to do is build some third party module, why
don't you make the headers?

- From the kernel source directory, run:
make-kpkg kernel-headers

You then get an installable .deb containing the kernel headers.

Hi David,

The most easy to do is to install the SDK CD to VM (VMWare, Virtual Box
or qemu). It included required package to build kernel as well. Once
the deb is build, you can transfer the kernel deb to alix box and
install it.

Hi David,

The most easy to do is to install the SDK CD to VM (VMWare, Virtual Box
or qemu). It included required package to build kernel as well. Once
the deb is build, you can transfer the kernel deb to alix box and
install it.

Hi,
I am currently using the experimental build of voyage because I want
to use open 802.11s which only comes with the latest kernel. However,
I also want to try out Layer 2 batman or batman experimental which
requires the kernel headers. As there are no headers for my kernel
(2.6.30-486-voyage) I am trying to build them from the kernel-source.
I am following the instructions found here [1]. When I do my make, I
CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
SYMLINK include/asm -> include/asm-x86
CALL scripts/checksyscalls.sh
CHK include/linux/compile.h
dnsdomainname: Unknown host
LZMA arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.bin.lzma
lzma: Cannot allocate memory
LD arch/x86/boot/compressed/piggy.o
ld: arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.bin.lzma: No such file: No such
file or directory
make[2]: *** [arch/x86/boot/compressed/piggy.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux] Error 2
make: *** [bzImage] Error 2
It seems that the ALIX boards with 256 MB/s of memory cannot create
"arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.bin.lzma" becuase they run out of
memory. Has anyone on this list encountered this problem before? I
would prefer not to cross compile as it seems a little complicated
when I just want to install batman-advanced. Can anyone give me some
suggestions? Am I doing everything correctly?
Thanks
Dave
