Following "How To Compile A Kernel - The Debian (Sarge) Way" to install 126.96.36.199
I am trying to install a version of 188.8.131.52 carefully following every step of the guide http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_debian. Every step runs fine up until the step in part2 of the guide where I execute the command "mkinitrd.yaird -o /boot/initrd.img-184.108.40.206-default1 220.127.116.11-default1".
- currently running a 2.6.7 kernel:
Linux globoid 2.6.7 #4 Sun Feb 18 15:42:41 CET 2007 i686 GNU/Linux
- every step of the guide runs without errors until I execute "mkinitrd.yaird -o /boot/initrd.img-18.104.22.168-default1 22.214.171.124-default1". This command exits with the following error:
globoid:/tmp# mkinitrd.yaird -o /boot/initrd.img-126.96.36.199-default1 188.8.131.52-default1
yaird error: Could not read output for /sbin/modprobe -v -n --show-depends --set-version 184.108.40.206-default1 evdev (fatal)
I am quite a newbie to this, so please be patient with me :) I hope that this guide is also valid for kernel 220.127.116.11
Any idea what I am doing wrong? Any other files or configuration that would be interesting to investigate?
Thanks in advance,
What's the output of
I know this is an old thread, but i am working on an old machine :P
i got this exact error when compiling 2.6.18 for an old thinkpad 760xl...
it was my bad, in make menuconfig, i was trying to strip the kernel down as far as possible, evdev is the generic input event interface, and apparently required?
CONFIG_INPUT_EVDEV set to m or y (default was m i think)
again, only replying to such an old thread as it was tough finding a solution on google and i hope this helps someone else later... it bites finding LOTS of hits to various forums of solved errors without a solution in the post :P
