Re: rawhide report: 20070320 changes -- vmware module building



Jim Bevier said the following on 03/21/2007 10:26 AM Pacific Time:
Well it looks like it is the CFLAGS parameters in the kernel Makefile that is causing the problem. I.e. /usr/src/kernels/2.6.20-1.2997.fc7-x86_64/Makefile or /usr/src/kernels/2.6.20-1.2999.fc7-x86_64/Makefile. You need to replace the -Wextra parameter with -Wundef that is around line 318 in the Makefile. This will allow VMWare tp build again without an error.

CFLAGS          := -Wall -Wundef -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs \
                  -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common \
    -Werror-implicit-function-declaration \
    -Wundef -Wno-unused-parameter -Wno-missing-field-initializers
##     -Wextra -Wno-unused-parameter -Wno-missing-field-initializers

Jim


Thanks.  Unfortunately I'm trying to build against /usr/src/kernels/2.6.20-1.2925.fc6-i586 and the parameters you refer to are not in the Makefile.

This is the error I get....

There is probably a slight difference in the kernel configuration between the set of C header files you specified and your running kernel. You may want to rebuild a kernel based on that directory, or specify another directory.
