Error during install


#1

I am installing on SuSE 9.3. I have all the libraries that the quick installs asks for set up:
Full Linux kernel source code
zlib-devel
OpenSSL (and headers)
Bison 1.875
The first thing I do is “make install” of zaptel-1.2.1 and I get the following error:

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.11.4-21.9-smp/build SUBDIRS=/usr/src/zaptel-1.2.1 modules
make[1]: Entering directory /usr/src/linux-2.6.11.4-21.9-obj/i386/smp' make[1]: *** No rule to make targetmodules’. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.11.4-21.9-obj/i386/smp’
make: *** [linux26] Error 2

Any ideas?
Thanks!

Did you ever get a answer to you post. I am having a simular problem with suse 10.0

Try

for zaptel

make clean
make linux26
make install

then
make clean
make install

and have a look at the notes on udev and the linux 2.6 kernel

Thanks for the input, I tried that and came up with the same error…
could it be an issue the object file that is being referenced.

You have got the correct kernel headers ?

As this may be your problem

Ian


#6

If you don’t mine teach me to fish…

what are kernel headers…
are we talking

kernel-update-tool-0.9-10
kernel-default-2.6.13-15.7
kernel-source-debuginfo-2.6.13-15
kernel-source-2.6.13-15

I think that maybe my problem but I am reentering linux after awhile and going through
the dummy thing…

#7

uname -r will tell you what kernel you have then install the relevent kernel-headers to match.

That would mean that my installation is just perfect, but the same error:

uname -r: 2.6.11.4-21.10-default

BUT

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.11.4-21.10-obj/i386/default' make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop. make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.11.4-21.10-obj/i386/default' make: *** [linux26] Error 2

Any further idea to get zaptel compiled?

Hi

2.6.11.4-21.10-default
2.6.11.4-21.10-obj

dont look the same to me.

What disty are you using?

2.6.11.4-21.10-default
2.6.11.4-21.10-obj

Oh, I expected only the numbers have a meaning. Nevertheless these obj-directories are the result of installing the kernel-sources using yast.

Suse 9.3


#11

Because I couldn’t find the sources for the kernel that was installed, I installed the kernel with the same version as the source.

No errors anymore, and learned something again.
Thanx.
