Subject: [gentoo-user] Module and kernel woes after two "emerge -DuNe @world"s
Date: Sat, 08 Jun 2019 18:01:44
1 I'm having problems with newly compiled modules (zfs (et al.) and vbox
2 (et al.)) and kernel after doing two "emerge -DuNe @world"s.
4 Everything worked fine after rebooting after the first "emerge -DuNe
5 @world". So, I did another "emerge -DuNe @world". (This harks back to
6 the old stage 1 -> stage 2 -> stage 3 methodology that I cut my teeth
7 on. Create the new tool, use said tool to recreate the tool.)
9 After the reboot after this second "emerge -DuNe @world" is when my ZFS
10 pool became inaccessible.
12 Aside: I migrated from ZFS 0.7.999 to 0.8 as part of the first emerge.
13 This worked fine.
15 I have since found out that I can't load vbox* modules, nor can I boot a
16 kernel that I can successfully build.
18 The modules fail with the following error:
20 modprobe: ERROR: could not insert '<module name>': Exec format error.
22 Dmesg reports the following associated error:
24 [ <seconds since boot>] module: <module name>: Unknown rela
25 relocation: 4
27 My searches online have made me think that this /might/ be a problem
28 with newer binutils. But I'm not sure.
30 So, I figured that I'd ask for some help / input before I do something
31 drastic that I might regret, like making things worse, or painting
32 myself into a corner that I can't back out of.
34 Aside: I have regained access to my ZFS pool by restoring the ZFS
35 contents of the /lib/modules/<version>/extra directory.
