can't compile.

bohoomil commented on 2010-12-06 01:23

There seems to be a little error in the PKGBUILD:

make "$MAKEFLAGS" bzImage
make "$MAKEFLAGS" modules

Shouldn't there rather be ${MAKEFLAGS} instead? Otherwise the kernel doesn't compile.

Best regards.

ahh ok

it does not matter which snapshot i use. the source tree is updated anyway right after extracting the snapshot. currently the zen1 snapshot is much bigger than the old one for some reason. One of the devs told me they would recreate it with a smaller file size. So long i will use the old one.

Ahh ok. So why dont you use the zen1 snapshot?

As you can see the zen1 snapshot is much bigger than the old one. It does not only include the kernel source but is a full snapshot of a working git tree that can be used for future updates. Developers have created them in order to reduce the server's stress. (Cloning takes a lot of ram and multiple clone requests at the same time crashes the server)

Why do you use linux-2.6-zen.v2.6.36-zen0-full-git.tar.gz instead of linux-2.6-zen.v2.6.36-zen1-full-git.tar.gz from http://downloads.zen-kernel.org/snapshots/zen-stable ?

Wouldn't be linux-2.6-zen.v2.6.36-zen1-full-git.tar.gz more usefull?

2nd Question:

Why the Hell does this kernel has a size of 500 - 700MB even when it is ziped? o.O

Updated the package.
Make flags set in /etc/makepkg.conf are now used to build the kernel and the modules.
If the package directory was moved the package would not build anymore due to the absolute path set in src/build/Makefile. Thus the PKGBUILD now always runs "make outputmakefile" to ensure the path is correct.
The output of "make defconfig" is now redirected to /dev/null because it made a lot of messages disappear.
I have also fixed the useless depmod command in kernel26-zen.install. (thanks to Marcel-x)

Don't know. I have simply taken the install script from my previous kernel26zen-git package. Should change that probably today. ;)

Just one last question (at least for today ;): why do you issue `/sbin/depmod -v` (=verbose) only to redirect all that output to /dev/null?
