Subject: [gentoo-user] Upgrading kernel with gcc6... use mrproper and not clean
Date: Tue, 19 Dec 2017 02:47:06
1 I just thought I'd send this out in case others aren't aware...
3 I've updated some seven machines now to the new profile and gcc6. Out of
4 the seven, four of them had problems rebuilding the kernel which led to
5 an outright hang during booting (black screen, no kernel panic, just hang.)
7 I found out `make clean` is not enough, I had to backup my .config, use
8 `make mrproper`, restore the .config and run `make silentoldconfig`
9 before compiling the kernel and modules.
11 I am thinking `make clean` didn't remove everything made during the
12 compile process and caused some strange race condition somewhere while
13 booting (completely guessing here.)
15 I went back to the three that seemed to be working fine and did the
16 mrproper process on them, because if something happens down the line I
17 probably won't remember what caused the boot issue.
