Subject: stuck with 2.6.23.14 on x86_64
Date: Tue, 12 Feb 2008 15:03:41 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <200802121503.41328.cova@ferrara.linux.it> (raw)

Hi all,
I'm stuck in a weird situation: I'm unable to go beyond 2.6.23.14, so to fix 
the splice bug I've had to apply by hand the patch. (x86_64)

Basically, with 2.6.24.2 (the same with 2.6.24 and .1), tha machine won't boot 
due to a problem with cciss driver, that prevents to find the / partition.
(bug described here: Kernel Bug Tracker Bug 9859 
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9859 );

With kernels 2.6.23, the lastest that I can compile is 2.6.23.14; starting 
from .15 (and .16) I get this message:

======================
  UPD     include/linux/compile.h
  CC      init/version.o
  LD      init/built-in.o
  LD      .tmp_vmlinux1
drivers/built-in.o: In function `acpi_init':
bus.c:(.init.text+0x1713): undefined reference to `pm_flags'
bus.c:(.init.text+0x1756): undefined reference to `pm_flags'
======================

All .config are the same, (make oldconfig) beside the obvious differences 
between .23 and .24

Hardware: x86_64 AMD 2216HE
SCSI controller: HP Smart Array E200i Controller
Compiler: gcc (GCC) 4.1.1 
binutils: 2.16.1

On a x86 machine, Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.20GHz
with a cciss0: HP Smart Array 6i Controller, 
the 2.6.24.2 compiles just fine and works, so the cciss problems seems related 
only to E200i controller.

Right now, on AMD64 machines, I'm forced to patch by hand the kernel, that's 
quite uncomfortable :)

Can someone point me in the right direction to get out of this situation? Of 
course I can provide any further information. (.config not inlcuded now to 
avoid cluttering  )

Thanks for any answer.
