Description Łukasz Trąbiński 2006-10-22 17:26:59 EDT
Description of problem:

I'm tring to compile some kernel modul (cisco vpn) on FC6.
First i can't find config.h header:

[lukasz@evil ~]$ rpm -q kernel-devel
kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
[lukasz@evil ~]$ rpm -ql kernel-devel |grep "linux/config\.h" |wc -l
0
OK, i can copy config.h from different location/source. When compiling was
successful and when i tring insert module info system:

[root@evil ~]# modprobe cisco_ipsec
FATAL: Error inserting cisco_ipsec
(/lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/CiscoVPN/cisco_ipsec.ko): Invalid module format
in system logs i can find information like this:

cisco_ipsec: version magic '2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 SMP mod_unload 686 REGPARM
4KSTACKS gcc-4.1' should be '2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 SMP mod_unload 586 REGPARM
4KSTACKS gcc-4.1'


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC6 upgraded from FC5

[root@evil ~]# rpm -q kernel
kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
[root@evil ~]# rpm -q gcc
gcc-4.1.1-30
[root@evil ~]# rpm -q glibc
glibc-2.5-3
[root@evil ~]# rpm -q kernel-devel
kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6

Additional info:

I know that this example is not very good, i'm tring to compile strange module
from Cisco :) but it worked and compiled well on FC5

What do you get when you run:

rpm -q --queryformat "%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n" kernel

?

OK, it was
kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i586
shuld be
kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686

kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686 works OK. Thank You. It's not bug, it was my fault.




Comment 3 petrosyan 2006-10-24 14:29:46 EDT
Its not your fault. It was caused by anaconda incorrectly upgrading your kernel.
This has been filed as bug #211941
