I'm trying to follow the pocket Linux guide to make a really basic floppy based distro. I'm trying to compile linux-126.96.36.199 as per the tutorial on ubuntu 9.04 with gcc-4.1. I tried using 2.6.* but it was just to big to fit on my floppy. Here is the error I'm running into:
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/root/dev/linux-188.8.131.52/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fno-builtin-strpbrk -fno-builtin-sprintf -fomit-frame-pointer -Wno-pointer-sign -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i386 -fno-unit-at-a-time -nostdinc -iwithprefix include -E -D__GENKSYMS__ signal.c | /sbin/genksyms -p smp_ -k 2.4.37 > /root/dev/linux-184.108.40.206/include/linux/modules/signal.ver.tmp /bin/sh: /sbin/genksyms: not found make: *** [/root/dev/linux-220.127.116.11/include/linux/modules/signal.ver] Error 127 make: Leaving directory `/root/dev/linux-18.104.22.168/kernel' make: *** [_sfdep_kernel] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/root/dev/linux-22.214.171.124' make: *** [dep-files] Error 2
So, genksyms is missing but I'm unsure on what it is and how to get it.
