Kernel recompile fails on Duron system
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
System hangs at different location on each attempt when doing a make bzImage. Happens with both 2.2.14 and 2.2.16 kernels.
System is a Duron 600 with MSI 6340 MB. I have replaced all the hardware except the processor and still get the same result. The memory is a
quality item and I have tried both 64MB PC133 and 128MB PC100. I have also tried different memory timings in BIOS. The system has run
successfully for > 48 hours using a windows CPU burn program so it doesn't look like a hardware problem.
I am able to compile other stuff such as Apache and MySQL.
Kernel compiles fine on our Duron 700, including lots of stress
testing like multiple parallel kernel compilations...
Did you make any changes to the make file from the default specifically for your Duron or did it work 'out of the crate'?
"Out of the crate". No patches.
Our 2.2.14 kernel that came with 6.2 is known not to work at all
on Duron and Thunderbird; the workaround is to explicitly install
the 386 kernel, boot that, and use it to upgrade to the 2.2.16-3
errata kernel, which does work correctly on Duron on Thunderbird.
But that doesn't have anything to do with your problem, because
the non-functioning kernels halt early in the boot sequence.
