Could you add support for initrd in the config?

Unfortunately, usually UML is not close in config to a "full-fledged" kernel. It is just a testing ground and nothing more.

CyberShadow commented on 2021-08-08 15:41

Thank you! That sent me on the right path of tracking down the problem.

Two things were missing:

  1. The kernel is built without loop device support, and support for most filesystems is also missing. I don't know if this is a problem - I guess I was just expecting a kernel configured closer to the normal Arch Linux kernel.

  2. With the default rootfstype=hostfs, and without running anything like udevd, /dev is the host's /dev. Creating a loop device inside UML without something like udevd requires either mknod-ing /dev/loop0 or creating it on the host (e.g. with losetup --find).

Unfortunately if something goes wrong, the error messages are going to be rather misleading, though strace helps a little.

The reason why files in /proc were empty was simply that /proc was also coming from the host. UML hostfs used the size in stat (which is always 0 for such virtual files) to count the number of bytes to transfer. mount -t proc proc /proc fixes this, along with other userspace utilities.

@CyberShadow

Take a look at this and tell me if it works in this scope:

This UML package is compiled in the absolute minimum version and I will rewrite PKGBUILD if needed.

CyberShadow commented on 2021-08-08 07:31

I was hoping of using UML to experiment with in-kernel filesystems implementations. However, not sure what's going wrong, but I can't mount anything inside UML:

$ vmlinux mem=1G root=/dev/root rootfstype=hostfs init=/bin/bash
Core dump limits :
[...]
[root@(none) /]# mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /tmp
[root@(none) /]# cd /tmp
[root@(none) tmp]# truncate -s 256M a
[root@(none) tmp]# mkfs.ext4 -q a
[root@(none) tmp]# mkdir b
[root@(none) tmp]# mount a b
mount: b: mount failed: Operation not permitted.

I get the same "Operation not permitted" error even if vmlinux is running as root on the host. Furthermore, /proc/filesystems is empty, which doesn't seem right - shouldn't at least hostfs be there?

Will you kindly explain why the lack of a gpg key in your system is reported as an error? If you don't have a key, just add it.

paulhart commented on 2020-02-17 00:49

got the following build error (commit 6c8917c19c35):

[... removed for clarity ...]
==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
    linux-5.5.4.tar ... FAILED (unknown public key 38DBBDC86092693E)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

got around it by using the --skippgpcheck flag on makepkg.

JuniorJPDJ commented on 2019-10-18 09:48

Could you make build use more than one thread?
