Intel test-release-0.3.19 with kernel 2.6.32.24 (Ubuntu)

Post by boing » Fri 6. Aug 2010, 16:44

Hi!

Im running ubunut 10.04 with kernel 2.6.32-24-generic-phc. Kernel headers are installed.
Problem is I cannot build the module ..

Code: Select all

make prepare
NO MATCHING PATCHSET FOUND FOR 2.6.32
:arrow: this is weird since the howto (see PS) is also using 2.6.32, but 2.6.32-21 instead of the one I use.

:?: Can I still still install it, and if so how?

Thanks!

PS: thanks for linking the external howto: http://openmindedbrain.info/09/05/2010/ ... lucid-lts/ (I found it just too late, but so far all of my steps where identical)

I am not giving up. I hope someone is actually reading these posts, since I keep getting stuck with this....

I am trying now on a different machine. It is running Ubunut 9.10 Karmic.
I followed the ppa instructions, since they state support for Karmic. The phc kernel and its hearders install like a charm.

Code: Select all

uname -r
2.6.31-21-generic-phc
so far so good. Now I try to build and load the module. I downloaded the version that states support for kernel 2.6.31 (phc-intel-0.4) and followed instructions in the readme.
(I am wondering that the release states version 0.4 but the attached file is called "test-release-0.3.199-3". Is this correct?)

Code: Select all

make prepare
FOUND AVAILABLE PATCHSET. PREPARING.
missing header for unified diff at line 4 of patch
patching file phc-intel.c
I searched the whole forum, but could not find anyone complaining about this.
I can do "make" and "make install" anyway, but I will not find a folder like "/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq" afterwards.

Any ideas?

I was wondering about this, too...

It looks to me like the "test Releases" thread contains an Intel-0.4 patch for 2.6.33, but NOT 2.6.32. And the "Releases" page has Intel-0.4 support for 2.6.31, but not 2.6.32.

Can we bridge the gap, since the newest Ubuntu PPA is for 2.6.32?
