PostPosted: Sat Mar 04, 2017 2:03 pm    Post subject: genkernel problem Reply with quote

Hello Everybody,

I am trying to install Gentoo through System Rescue CD and when I get to the genkernel part I got this error message.
My system is i686 and installing 32 bit tar ball.
Can you guys tell me the content of the messages and help me solve the problem what actually is going on and what is wrong with my genkernel compile.

Thanks in advance,

PC,

Code:
grep -i error /var/log/genkernel.log

What version of gentoo-sources (or other kernel sources) are you using?

With sys-kernel/genkernel-3.4.52.4-r2, this succeeds for me. Two questions:
  • 32-bit or 64-bit install?
  • Are you using genkernel or genkernel-next?

This is interesting too. My PC actually is 64 bit. However, while I was using system rescue cd, it gave me an error at the time when I bash chrooting. Later I found this link here
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Knowledge_Base:Chrooting_returns_exec_format_error
Anyway while I am on the system rescue cd,
Code:
 uname -m
(I dont remember at the moment the exact optionof the commond, I am on another machine now), it told e my PC architecture is i686. So if you ask me "is that 32 bit or 64 bit"; honestly I dont know what that means whether it is 32 or 64 but I know my pc is 64 bit. But if you have solution please tell me for both 32 and 64 bit machine. Sorry I thought little more detail would help you to answer me in an easier way.

I am using genkernel by the way.

Also where or how did you find that version? I have been digging around how to use/find for different version. I didnt know how to do that.

Final question how and why does this error occur? It seems it happens on the preparation stage of compiling.

Thanks,

PC,

If you emerge gentoolkit, you'll have the equery utility, which will tell you all sorts of useful information. To get the installed version of genkernel, for instance, run
Code:
equery list -i genkernel

Thank for your kind response John.

Also, can you explain why I am having that problem as well? Is that about the kernel itself (the version), architecture or what?

I can try but I need the version of genkernel you're running to try to reproduce your issue. Install gentoolkit and get me that version, please.

John,

Here is the reuslt of the command
Code:
 equery list -i genkernel
is
Code:
 sys-kernel/genkernel-3.4.52.4-r2:0
.
and I downloaded the i686 version of the tarball. I just tried to install fresh the whole system and when I tried to compile the whole kernel again
Code:
 genkernel all
it gave the same error. But here is the whole output that I will tr to copy-paste here.

Code:
 
time genkernel all

I am not sure what is going on here though.

implies that your compiler may not be new enough (or, alternatively, that your kernel source is too new). Let's see what you have. Post the output of
Code:
gcc-config -l
and
Code:
equery list -i gcc
please.

So this is exactly what I'm running and exactly what I've been successful with. One more question. Your compiler implies that you're performing a 32-bit install on your 64-bit machine. Is that what you intend?

Yes, mandatorily, because as I said in my previous posts, when I was chroot for the bash it gave problem. So I am trying to install 32 bit Gentoo on my 64 bit machine.

I have a 32-bit server at home and can try to reproduce. In the meantime, you might want to try with an alternate version of gentoo-sources. Trying installing gentoo-sources-4.4.39:
Code:
USE="symlink" emerge -v =gentoo-sources-4.4.39
and then run genkernel again.

Code:
*.config:31:warning: symbol value 'm' invalid for X86_INTEL_PSTATE
*.config:2289:warning: override: FB_MB862XX_LIME changes choice state
*.config:2710:warning: symbol value 'm' invalid for AB3100_CORE
*.config:2719:warning: symbol value 'm' invalid for MFD_WM8400
*.config:2720:warning: symbol value 'm' invalid for MFD_WM8350_I2C
*.config:2721:warning: symbol value 'm' invalid for MFD_WM8350
*.config:2722:warning: symbol value 'm' invalid for MFD_WM831X
*.config:3368:warning: symbol value 'm' invalid for POWER_SUPPLY
Those symbols don't exist in /usr/share/genkernel/arch/x86/kernel-config on my machine either. i.e.
Code:
gentoo x86 # grep -i X86_INTEL_PSTATE kernel-config
gentoo x86 #
genkernel 3.4.52.4-r2

However, it does exist in my running 64-bit kernel:
Code:
gentoo x86_64 # zcat /proc/config.gz |grep  X86_INTEL_PSTATE
# CONFIG_X86_INTEL_PSTATE is not set

I can pastebin an older config for a k-6 32-bit, you would have to edit it for your hardware (man genkernel for the options) or you could start with this:

Tony,

Is there any other link that you can give, please? In my side of the world, I cant reach that website (forbidden for some reason by the government).

And also, please don't get me wrong, I really appreciate your help, but I feel like there must be some proper/slick way of solving this issue other than sharing some files and editing them.

Thanks,

PC,

The second link, of course, is from this forum. I would address your access problem in that thread.

It looks to me like somehow you are using the config from a 64-bit machine since the generic genkernel config has those symbols for 64 bit but not for 32 bit.

It looks to me like your immediate problem is getting your new install running. Otherwise, I suggest filing a bug against genkernel.

Another band aid you can try is to, after mounting /mnt/gentoo but before chrooting:
Code:
zcat /proc/config.gz >/mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux/cd.config

That will put the CD's kernel config in if it supports /proc/config.gz which I'm almost sure that sysrescuecd does.
Then after chrooting
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux
genkernel --config=cd.config --menuconfig --oldconfig --clean
Sorry, I'm an old hacker, I only know the band-aids.

This is the clue right here:
Code:
*kernel/bounds.c:1:0: error: CPU you selected does not support x86-64 instruction set
I think you might've booted SystemRescueCD as 64-bit but then are trying to install a 32-bit stage.

John,

This is the part I dont understand. OK here is the story.
I tried to install with the same install media which is the same system rescue cd but I tried it with x86-64 tarball. However when I tried to chroot, it gave exec format error as in described in this link. https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Knowledge_Base:Chrooting_returns_exec_format_error. Then i decided to install tarball (i686) version. Then I have been getting these errors as I posted above.

So, the final verdict is that I need to find a 64 bit distro (which probably I wont use system rescue cd even though on the website it says that it is compatible with both 32 and 64 bit.)

Unfortunately, I cant use the original Gentoo media neither the admin version nor the normal version because then there is a wireless problem, I tried a lot I couldnt even configure. One of the original either admin or the other minimal one didnt boot up from the first place.

So I have been forcing myself for the system rescue cd though. So this is the whole procedure that I have been going through.

Well, now I dont mind trying some other distro, if it will solve the problem.

PC,

SystemRescueCd will boot in 32-bit or 64-bit mode. I use it myself. The choice is right in the bootloader menu that you get when you first start booting the CD. Choose a 32-bit kernel and it'll be compatible with a 32-bit stage.

That said, if you don't have a particular reason to install Gentoo, then a binary distro will be a lot easier for you. But if you do have a reason to install Gentoo, and you want to continue, then you'll get a lot of help. ;)

- John

Code:
*.config:31:warning: symbol value 'm' invalid for X86_INTEL_PSTATE
X86_INTEL_PSTATE is defined in /usr/src/linux/drivers/cpufreq/Kconfig.x86 and is a bool value which can be y or n. The routines in the kernal source that modify the kernel configuration should not set the value to m. Use --menuconfig with genkernel to change the kernel configuration.
