openafs on Ultra1 with 2.4.17 kernel
I'm having trouble getting even the compilation of this module started.
2.4.17 compiled with no problems. Note however that I had to install
egcs64 to get the kernel to compile. (By the way, why can't I find egcs64
on packages.debian.org?) However, when I do "fakeroot make-kpkg
modules_image" I get the following
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/modules/openafs'
ln -s @sys/dest dest
ln -s Error: Not Supported @sys
ln: when making multiple links, last argument must be a directory
make: [build-modules-stamp] Error 1 (ignored)
sh configure --with-afs-sysname=Error: Not Supported
configure: warning: Not: invalid host type
configure: warning: Supported: invalid host type
configure: error: can only configure for one host and one target at a time
make: *** [build-modules-stamp] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/openafs'
Module /usr/src/modules/openafs failed.
I'm following steps that have always worked for me in i386. I am
speculating that 2.4 kernels may be simply not supported, but that
contradicts bug reports I read on the web.
I see that /debian/sysname says
case $KVERS in
case $KVERS in
echo Error: Not Supported
If I'm trying to do sparc64 does this mean 2.4 is not supported? But I'm
not even sure what the difference is between sparc and sparc64. Can
someone help me? I want to use 2.4.17 so I can use ext3 and I'm found
2.4.17 (at least on i386) to be very stable.
Sincerely, Faheem Mitha.
