Subject: [gentoo-user] Unable to build sys-kernel/hardened-sources-2.6.25-r9
Date: Mon, 17 Nov 2008 23:02:19
1 I am attempting to switch a VM over to the hardened profile and the
2 hardened kernel. I have rebuilt almost all of the packages on my
3 computer after switching to th hardened profile, save for a few kernel
4 modules. I have emerged hardened-sources-2.6.25-r9 and am trying to
5 build it. I tried copying the .config that I had used with
6 gentoo-sources-2.6.25-r9 to /usr/src/linux (symlinked to
7 /usr/src/linux-2.6.25-hardened-r9) and doing a `make menuconfig`
8 followed by a `make && make modules_install`, but received an error
9 almost right out of the gate. The error concerns some part of the frame
10 buffer driver. Here is the output I get from make:
12 CHK include/linux/version.h
13 CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
14 CALL scripts/
15 CHK include/linux/compile.h
16 dnsdomainname: Host name lookup failure

22 reported only once
23 drivers/video/uvesafb.c:593: error: for each function it appears in.)

33 DEPMOD 2.6.25-hardened-r9
35 The only way I can get rid of the error is to disable frame buffer
36 entirely (Device drivers -> Graphics support -> Support for frame buffer
37 devices), which is not optimal.
39 Does anyone know what is causing this?
41 Thanks,
42 Chris
