I'm building a kernel using the PKGBUILD from here, vanilla 2.6.10 source, and the mm3 patch. I've selected the "make oldconfig" method, and copied in the config from my current kernel. When I run makepkg, I get the sources downloaded, the patching done, and "make oldconfig" done - and then it just stops. I've left it for up to two hours and nothing further happens. The box isn't frozen, just the process - I can Ctrl-C to stop it.
I've also tried the mm2 and ck7 patches, in case mm3 was the problem - still nothing. I compiled kernels on the same box last week and over the weekend with no problems.
Anyone know what's going on here?
no i'm not sure
but if you need to build a mm-kernel, have a look here:
respectively in ABS under extra/kernels/kernel26mm
i know it is chaotic, but it works in most situations for the mm-kernel
if you don't need the rc patches, simply leave the rcver empty
The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.
Thanks for the suggestion dp. In the meantime, though, I've decided to skip 2.6.10 and go for 2.6.11, which was released yesterday.
I was going to give mm a shot to see if it would solve a small yet annoying problem I was having with 2.6.10. Instead, I sorted it with 2.6.11.
