Re: [linux-lvm] Building lvm2 against 2.6.10...



My distro is Red Hat 9.

I do have the device mapper built. Under 2.6.10, it's called dm-mod.

I took interest in your comment about header files. Where do you get your /usr/include files if not from the kernel? Do they come with your distro? (Maybe Red Hat 9 is just too old.)

There isn't much of use in the config.log.


well, there should be something, maybe something referring to pgoff_t?

check you have defined pgoff_t in /usr/include/linux/types.h


Actually, I just wasn't looking far enough up in the config.log. I found a few of the problems but I haven't been able to get the thing to compile. Here's the skinny:


- The asm directory doesn't exist in the linux-2.6.10 subdirectory. There are only asm-ppc, asm-x86_64, asm-i386, etc. So I made a symlink to the appropriate one in /usr/include.


i don't know which linux distro you are using, but relying on the kernel
for includes is bad practice. anyway if you do you better do at least a
make oldconfig in the kernel tree.

- There is no header file that I could find anyway, called libdevmapper.h. I symlinked it to device-mapper.h.

you have to build and install the device mapper.


- Now, there's some kind of problem with the definition of sector_t.


sorry my scrying orb is out of order.
