    Intall RTLinux-3.2-wr on Debian 5.0.4


    My computer has Debian 5.0.4 (with kernel linux-2.6.26-2-AMD) installed. Processor is AMD64 athlon dual-core CPU.

    I am trying to install RTLinux-3.2-wr. Below is what I did:

    1) download a clean kernel : linux-2.6.26.8.tar.gz and patch : patch-2.6.26.8-rt16.gz
    2) configure and build the kernel with the patch applied
    3) reboot with the new kernel
    "uname -r" shows "2.6.26.8-rt16"

    4) download and unpack RTLinux-3.2-wr.tar.bz2 into /usr/src/rtlinux-3.2-wr, the execute the following commands:

    cd /usr/src/rtlinux-3.2-wr
    make menuconfig

    I get an error message "Makefile: 66: schedulers/x86/Makefile: No such file or directory", which is caused by line 66 "include schedulers/$(ARCH)/Makefile" in file /usr/src/rtlinux-3.2-wr/Makefile.

    When I go to directory "/usr/src/rtlinux-3.2-wr/schedulers", I find that there is no "x86" subfolder. The existing four subfolders are "alpha", "i386", "ppc" and "mips" respectively.

    What should I do to "make menuconfig" successfully? Thanks.

    After replacing x86 with i386 in /usr/src/rtlinux-3.2-wr/Makefile, 'make menuconfig' succeeds.

    However, when I try to run 'make dep' command, I get another error:

    rm -f .depend
    make .depend
    make[3]: *** [silentoldconfig] Error 1
    make[2]: *** [silentoldconfig] Error 2
    make[3]: *** [silentoldconfig] Error 1
