I'm trying to install MOL on Debian PPC 3.1r1. Of course, it sounded so simple with packages already created for this installation (or so I thought). I've documented my process below, and I hope someone can guide me in the correct direction.
"apt-get install mod-modules-2.6.8-powerpc" returns:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
mol-modules-2.6.8-powerpc: Depends: kernel-image-2.6.8-powerpc (= 2.6.8-12) but 2.6.8-12sarge1 is to be installed
Of course, uname -r returns 2.6.8-powerpc. So why does it tell me I don't have the correct kernel?
And, just to see what apt-get thinks, "apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.8-powerpc" returns kernel-image-2.6.8-powerpc is already the newest version.
No big deal, I'll just compile from the sources...
download, decompress, cd to the mol directory. "make" returns:
--- Error: Unconfigured kernel source!
--- (missing file: /usr/src/kernel-build-2.6.8-powerpc/include/linux/config.h)
So, I try and install a number of packages for the kernel. Maybe I missed something. They are:
But then no /usr/src/linux softlink. So (and this may be very wrong) I linked that to /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.6.8. Other directories created when installing the above packages include:
Maybe I need the full kernel sources?
So install them, but mol now says they are not configured. So I try and configure the kernel sources (I just accepted all the default since I have no idea what I should be selecting). I can get now get MOL to compile, but now it hangs when I try to run it.
Obviously I need to set something else up, but I don't know which direction to turn. Any advice is much appreciated. The best solution would be a package I can install, or a way to force it to except the package I have, but I'm open to anything.
