My current kernel was built from kernel-source-2.4.22 but I have been
experiencing irratic behavior - specifically many
p80211/knetdev_hard-start_xinit: messages on shutdown followed by
various problems on rebooting. Genrally a second reboot works. I
decided to backup to kernel-2.4.18 in hopes of eliminating the problems.
After make menuconfig and make dep when I run make bzImage the compile
aborts with a series of messages the first of which is in
In the file included from ksym.c:50:
termintating " character
And is there a missing terminating character?
Checking I note that the line in question is:
which indeed does have a missing " character.
If you are using gcc 3.3, which you are if you ran dist-upgrade, it
*will* complain of that. You can apt-get install gcc-2.95 and that will
do away with the error.
Also apt-get install kernel-package and instead do:
make-kpkg --revision 1 kernel_image
and that will create a deb file for you that is installable as the new
kernel: it will do all that make dep for you.
I would not be afraid that the system is compromised until you really
see something that is not of your own doing...
I am concerned that the system is compromised. I have run chkrootkit
and even tried chkrootkit -x SucKIT but chkrootkit doesn't know SucKIT.
I would appreciate any insights about the nature of the problems and
what to do about them.
