kernel-debug-devel for centosplus failed dependencies

Post by kirkande » 2008/07/07 17:42:15

I have this message and I am looking for the rpm to resolve it. Any ideas?
error: Failed build dependencies:
kernel-debug-devel = 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus is needed by ocfs2-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus-1.3.9-0.local.el5.x86_64

This is what I have installed:
[root@newamd64 ocfs2-1.3.9]# rpm -qa kernel*
kernel-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus
kernel-devel-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5
kernel-2.6.18-92.1.1.el5
kernel-devel-2.6.18-92.1.1.el5
kernel-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5
kernel-devel-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus
kernel-debug-devel-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5
kernel-xen-devel-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus
kernel-headers-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus


I tried using yum install kernel-debug-devel-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus
and it comes back with nothing to do.

here is my uname -a
[root@newamd64 ocfs2-1.3.9]# uname -a
Linux newamd64 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus #1 SMP Thu Jun 26 12:18:07 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Thanks in advance,

Kirk

Looking on my local mirror site (Index of ftp://centos.zanker.org/centos/5.2/centosplus/x86_64/RPMS/) I see:

[/code]

It appears that the [b]CentOS Plus[/b] debug kernels have not been built.

After having a discussion with a colleague, I was reminded that the [b]CentOS Plus[/b] kernel is [b][i]never[/b][/i] built in the debug variety.

[quote]kernel-debug-devel = 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus is needed by ocfs2-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus-1.3.9-0.local.el5.x86_64[/quote]
As ocfs2-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus-1.3.9-0.local.el5.x86_64 is not a [i]CentOS[/i] supplied product, I would suggest that you contact your supplier for advice.

I do not produce those files for centos.plus kernels, and debug is set to zero in the kernel spec file, so I can not provide them.

OCFS2 is in the linux kernel, though it is not enabled in the current plus kernel.

I do not know where the spec file that built that kernel module came from, but I don't think that this package should be required and it seems like a problem with the spec file.

Are you saying that I would need to compile the module for it or that it is already there and I should not have to do anything except start using it?

As Johnny said, OCFS2 is [b]not[/b] enabled in the CentOS kernel (including the centosplus kernel). You can try changing the OCFS2 option to M (module) and build it. For details on how to build kernel modules, please see http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/BuildingKernelModules .
