Hello everybody,

while I was installing my kernel compiling step failed. When I use the command
Code:
genkernel all

then I got this

    cat /var/log/genkernel.log | grep -i error

    make: *** [kernel] Error 2

    * errors that were reported above.


I searched but honestly nothing made sense to me. Any ideas or guesses?

Thanks,

PC,

Did you configure? I often use this command, which starts with config of running kernel:

genkernel --menuconfig --install --integrated-initramfs --kernel-config=/proc/config.gz all

But I dont want to configure the kernel manually, I just wanna do genkernel. thats all.

that line is a fine start, if you don't want any manual steps skip `--menuconfig` part

bc was removed from the system set, but it's a dependency in at least the recent gentoo-sources.
Can you in fact get to a kernel building sitiuation without building bc?

Apparently you can; I have no idea what peculiar confluence of events is required.

I really dont understand, I mean I really followed every single step of the handbook and it is supposed to work. I am not doing anything different than the tutorials. Is is possible there is a bug of genkernel?

Your last genkernel compile reported success. Are you still having problems? If so, what are they?
ls -l /boot should show a new kernel, initrd/initramfs, and system.map made in the last few hours.
My conclusion is not that there is a bug in genkernel. Instead it appears that bc was removed from your system and portage thought it was still installed.

I thought that compilation takes hours it was just 5 minutes. the total time for the three commands

Code:

emerge --ask sys-kernel/gentoo-sources
emerger genkernel
genkernel all


was under 15 min. and my computer is not even that fast and good (i5 core duo).

That seemed to me weird. (Doesnt it look little bit suspicious?) I feel like something is not right.

By the way I didnt understand the part you are saying "removing bc". What is "bc" for?

Google is your friend:
http://www.gnu.org/software/bc/manual/html_mono/bc.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bc_%28programming_language%29
The kernel needs math lessons. (:-)

did you run ls -l /boot? ls -l /boot should show a new kernel, initrd/initramfs, and system.map made in the last few hours.
did you try rebooting to the new kernel I think you made?

I see the kernel and other stuff under the /boot. I guess I need to search on it on my own little bit. (steep learning curve)

Thank you so much everybody for your kind answers though. I really appreciate.

Best wishes,

And were the times for them within the last few hours? Appropriate to the time you ran genkernel last?
if you ran e
Code:
merge -1av bc
genkernel all
I'd expect it to take about 20 minutres. If you then ran:
Code:
emerge --ask sys-kernel/gentoo-sources
emerge genkernel
genkernel all
I'd expect the second run to be much quicker.

as I said I tried both different methods (perse`), both took less than 15 min even close to 10 min. However when I read the tutorials, handbooks etc., it is been told that it generally takes hours, that is why i deleted, everything and try to reload again. I am not sure that will solve the problem but again it just didnt make sense to me.

Thanks,

It sounds as if you now have a working kernel, probably built before your last build attempt.
Five minutes seems about right for a kernel rebuild with no, or minor, changes. If you want
to know how long a full kernel rebuild run "cd /usr/src/linux ; make clean" to remove all your
old kernel build, and then run genkernel again. The script I use is:
Code:

#!/bin/sh
# Build a Gentoo kernel.
# Clear the screen.
reset
# Note the start and finish times.
mv -f Build.time Build.time.last 2>/dev/null
echo Build started `date` >Build.time
# Use --no-install to stop the new kernel being copied to boot.
export TERM=xterm ; genkernel --no-clean --save-config --menuconfig all
echo Build ended `date` >>Build.time
# eof


I tend to have two kernels built - one working kernel, the first entry (default boot) in grub.conf
and the second a test kernel. You can distinguish between kernels by adding eg "-1" or "-2" to
their names with the CONFIG_LOCAL_VERSION configuration setting. The current configuration
is in /usr/src/linux/.config. so if you copy that to another file you can save a known-good configuration
for future use, and experiment with the test configuration without worrying about getting an unbootable
machine.

If you want to know what a program does, the first stop is manpages; "man whatever" should get
you at least some information on "whatever". "man man" explains the use of man, apropos and whatis,
related utilities. The next stop is the info pages, which I find hard to read - if you are running Gnome,
though, "yelp info:whatever" makes them useable.

This nasty shit error happen when you have set-up CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE to some value && asking genkernel to pack initramfs to the kernel (aka making kernel selfbootable in UEFI mode)

In my case I had:
Code:
andromeda /usr/src/linux # cat .config |grep CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE
CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE="/var/tmp/genkernel/initramfs-4.12.4-gentoo.cpio"

setting the variable to:
Code:

makes the kernel again compilable via:
Code:
genkernel all
