I'm trying to build a kernel for a Xen Dom0 setup, and getting
I download the official kernel source for 18.104.22.168 from
ftp.uk.kernel.org, and then I patch it with a Xen patchset from:-
Having done that, I copy my pre-existing kernel config for the machine
into the top level kernel directory, make menuconfig, and ajust the
subarchitecture to Xen, and set up the appropriate Xen options. Then I
try to build the kernel with make-kpkg, which fails miserably:-
# make-kpkg --append-to-version -xen kernel_image
if [ "X$uts_ver" != "X22.214.171.124-xen" ]; then \
echo "The UTS Release version in include/linux/version.h"; \
echo " \"$uts_ver\" "; \
echo "does not match current version " ; \
echo " \"126.96.36.199-xen\" " ; \
echo "Reconfiguring." ; \
touch Makefile; \
test -f stamp-configure || /usr/bin/make -f /usr/share/kernel-package/rules configure
/usr/bin/make EXTRAVERSION=.19-xen ARCH=i386 \
make: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/kernel/linux-188.8.131.52'
make: Nothing to be done for `bzImage'.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/kernel/linux-184.108.40.206'
Now, why it thinks there's nothing to be done for bzImage I don't know,
but there's certainly no kernel that actually gets compiled there....
Any ideas appreciated....
