Re: wheezy and gcc 4.3 (and maybe 4.5)
Well, we have used gcc 4.4 for the official kernel packages since Linux
2.6.34. So it should work.
Unfortunately, whether I use gcc 4.4 or another version, here is the
error I have when compiling the kernel:
/tmp/cc8aexwo.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/cc8aexwo.s: Error: .size expression for do_hypervisor_callback does
not evaluate to a constant
make: *** [arch/x86/kernel/entry_64.o] Erreur 1
From what I could have understood on various internet pages, this is
most certainly due to a wrong gcc version.
So whether I don't set the correct gcc version correctly (which can be
possible), whether the error is somewhere else.
Here is what I do to set the correct gcc version:
Then I compile the kernel with this:
fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=1.0 kernel_image
Maybe someone here can help me ?
You would have to install gcc-4.3 in a 'squeeze' environment, perhaps
using schroot or pbuilder or a virtual machine.
But you can also save some time by bisecting through the old packages at
I will have a look about these. It looks interesting.
Thanks in advance.
PS: I hope I subscribed to the good mailing list, if not, please point
me to the good one.
debian-kernel is the specific list for our Linux kernel packages.
