[SOLVED] - Please help a newbie compile a kernel

Hi all,
I tried to compile kernel by simply copying the PKGBUILD and other files into my workspace and issue 'makepkg -s'.
and this is the result:

Did you run the command as root? Since it complains about denied permissions running makepkg as a normal could be problematic.

Don't run makepkg as root. Copy the PKGBUILD and whatever source files you have to a directory owned by you then run makepkg.

While this is sound advice, it will not clear this error.

Re: [SOLVED] - Please help a newbie compile a kernel

Are you using the official PKGBUILD?

I suggest you extract the sources, then grab them with chown -R c0wb0y:c0wb0y src and then makepkg again with the parameter -e (don't extract archive).


no place like /home
github

Re: [SOLVED] - Please help a newbie compile a kernel

I already did the above. I used different PKGBUILDS and still the same result

  HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
/bin/sh: scripts/basic/fixdep: Permission denied
make[2]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 1
make[1]: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2
make: *** No rule to make target `include/config/auto.conf', needed by `include/config/kernel.release'.  Stop.
==> ERROR: Build Failed.

Re: [SOLVED] - Please help a newbie compile a kernel

Could you check the file permissions of scripts/basic/fixdep ? Maybe the executing bit is not set.

Re: [SOLVED] - Please help a newbie compile a kernel

Hi guys,
thanks a lot! i finally found out what's wrong. its my mount options in /home:
          /dev/sda8 on /home type ext4 (rw,noexec,nodev,noatime,nodiratime,commit=600)

i remounted it with defaults options and i was able to 'make menuconfig'
thanks heaps! smile

Out of curiousity; why did you have those mount options set?

Yeah, especially noexec..... the rest should be fine.
