Is there something that I might be missing that would
not be explained
on the site to build a udpcast cd from my own kernel? I am using a
RedHat 9 box and also have access to a Debian testing computer.
I have tried everything I can think of and have read everything on the
site. I tried using the floppy and putting the megaraid and scsi modules
on a second floppy. But I can't find where to load the modules form the
second floppy. When I choose the load other modules form the menu those
are not listed, just all the net modules.
All I really need is the same thing as the regular cd only with megaraid
and raid 5 support in the kernel or available as modules.
How exactly did you install the udpcast tools on your system? From the
RPM (recommended?). Or otherwise?
Could you check that:
- you have the genromfs utility present on your system
- the kernel you are inserting has a corresponding
/lib/modules/<kernelName> directory on your system.
- the /usr/lib/udpcast/tmpl directory is present
Could you also check what is in your initrd (obviously, not much,
given its small size, but it might be interesting to check what it
contains). Procees as folows (assuming you have the INITRD in your
$ mv INITRD initrd.gz
$ gunzip initrd.gz
# mkdir tmp
# mount -o loop initrd tmp
# ls -lR tmp
Also, could you mail me the output of running makeImage under strace:
strace -o /tmp/log.mkimage ./makeImage -k /usr/src/linux-2.4.21/arch/i386/
boot/bzImage -c udpcast.iso
The strace output is then in /tmp/log.mkimage; could you gzip and mail
me that file?
