Before I get shot down in flames, I would like to say that I know very
little about Linux.
What is NPTL and why are there kernel build problems? Where can I read about
What work arounds are there when the kernel doesn't build?
I had the following error:
kernel.o (.text+0xfc3): In function 'schedule'
undefined reference to 'active_load_balence'
...and I was told "...This is a KNOWN and benign problem with building NPTL
kernels. I have found that it will sometimes go away if you re-run make
BzImage. Strangely, I have also had success by entering make menuconfig,
exiting, saving the unchanged configuration and then rerunning make dep and
bzImage. Someone else suggested running "make oldconfig" twice."
It seems a fairly hit and miss affair. I dont want to have to re-try the
build in the hope that it will suddenly work in every kernel I change - it
takes time that I could better spend doing something else.
I'm just looking for information; I'm in no way critisizing.
