    Compiling latest kernel within VMWARE issues


    Hello. I'm trying to compile the latest kernel using the default x-86 arch config only i'm having problems with compiling the modules.


    Now when it comes to compiling the modules it just seems to compile too quickly i.e. doesn't actually compile any of the modules as i'm getting an error message when i install the kernel.

    I'm currently running openSuse 11.2 within the latest VMware.

    Here's what i'm getting when i "make modules"

    Code:
      CHK     include/linux/version.h
      CHK     include/generated/utsrelease.h
      CALL    scripts/checksyscalls.sh
      Building modules, stage 2.
      MODPOST 3 modules
    And when i "make modules_install"

    Code:
    INSTALL arch/x86/kernel/test_nx.ko
      INSTALL drivers/scsi/scsi_wait_scan.ko
      INSTALL net/netfilter/xt_mark.ko
      DEPMOD  2.6.35

    Here's what i'm getting, when i "make install, after compiling the kernel and modules", I've haven't changed the configs at all, as i'm playing around with kernel programming so the default config should work.

    Code:
    sh /home/User/Download/linux-2.6.35/arch/x86/boot/install.sh 2.6.35 arch/x86/boot/bzImage \
    System.map "/boot"
    
    Kernel image:   /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.35
    Initrd image:   /boot/initrd-2.6.35
    Root device:	/dev/sda2 (mounted on / as ext4)
    Resume device:	/dev/sda1
    modprobe: Module mptspi not found.

    I have compiled the kernel in the past with the same method i'm using, the only difference is i'm running it under Vmware. Any help would be excellent.

    Thanks people.

    Compiling latest kernel within VMWARE issues

    I was also having the same problem. A bit of google solved the issue. The page you need to refer is "Configuring the Kernel for VMware"

    Hope this will help you!
