    This is what I end up with. Is my symlink going in the correct location or referencing the correct location?

    I wonder why your 2.6.22 kernel looks for files belonging to 2.6.17... :confused:

    What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /usr/src
    ?

    The output is:

    linux is pointing to linux-2.6.17-13mdv/, not linux-2.6.22.3/...
    Try this:
    Code:
    ln -sf /usr/src/linux-2.6.22.3 /usr/src/linux

    I get this:

    Code:
    [root@localhost linux]# make rpm
    make clean
    set -e; cd ..; ln -sf /usr/src/linux-2.6.29.1-4mnb kernel-2.6.29.14mnbcustomdefault
    /bin/sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.29.1-4mnb/scripts/setlocalversion > /usr/src/linux-2.6.29.1-4mnb/.scmversion
    set -e; cd ..; tar -cz --exclude SCCS --exclude BitKeeper --exclude .svn --exclude CVS --exclude .pc --exclude .hg --exclude .git -f kernel-2.6.29.14mnbcustomdefault.tar.gz kernel-2.6.29.14mnbcustomdefault/.
    set -e; cd ..; rm kernel-2.6.29.14mnbcustomdefault
    rm -f /usr/src/linux-2.6.29.1-4mnb/.scmversion
    set -e; \
            /bin/sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.29.1-4mnb/scripts/mkversion > /usr/src/linux-2.6.29.1-4mnb/.tmp_version
    set -e; \
            mv -f /usr/src/linux-2.6.29.1-4mnb/.tmp_version /usr/src/linux-2.6.29.1-4mnb/.version
    rpm  --target i386 -ta ../kernel-2.6.29.14mnbcustomdefault.tar.gz
    "rpm -b" is deprecated, use "rpmbuild -b"
    /usr/lib/rpm/rpmb_deprecated: line 3: exec: rpmbuild: not found
    make[1]: *** [rpm] Error 127
    make: *** [rpm] Error 2
    
    is this a different problem? when i do
    Code:
    ls -la /usr/src
    
    i get this:
    Code:
    total 59964
    drwxr-xr-x  3 root root     4096 May 16 21:27 ./
    drwxr-xr-x 14 root root     4096 May 16 09:09 ../
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root 61322765 May 16 21:27 kernel-2.6.29.14mnbcustomdefault.tar.gz
    lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       19 May 16 17:55 linux -> linux-2.6.29.1-4mnb/
    drwxr-xr-x 23 root root     4096 May 16 21:27 linux-2.6.29.1-4mnb/
    
    which is different, but i'm still stuck.

    Is the rpmbuild package installed?

    probably not. actually, there's probably a ton of things that I haven't installed and should. how do i install rpmbuild and is there documentation on other recommended installs anywhere? for instance important stuff to do in order to install and configure vmware tools.

    Mandriva 2007

    I dowonloaded Mandriva 2007 version from a FTP site. It was a 64 bit version. I couldn't Stellenangebote install it. Then I bought it by buying a copy of the Linux Magazine. It had some other problems. It didn't recognize the mouse.

    I send an email to the people who made it. They want people to contact them if there is a problem. They never reply.

    Mandriva 2007 is quite old. Why don't you try 2009.1?

    Hi
    Linux is all about the freedom to use different libraries for the same functions. Redhat is big and vast with a lot of the sym links already established. I'm still learning linux. Sorry I can't tell you what the command was that seeks the dependencies for you in a build. I did find an old article that has helped me in the past. See if the link below makes any sense. Good luck!
