I've searched the archives but found no answer to this question:
Does XFS require DevFS? Or can I build a kernel for my system
(installed from the XFS RH7.1 .iso) that does not include devfs
without having problems?
I've been completely unable to build a working kernel using either
the RH-2.96 or egcs -- the build either fails or gives me a kernel
that produces random segfaults, oopsen, and fs corruption. I've tried
the .src.rpm on the .iso, the 2.4.3 patches and the CVS devel tree.
Often I get oopses in rc.sysinit at about the time it tries to
activate quota support -- do I need quota support built in?
I'm not exactly new at building kernels, but I'm no coder, and my
inability to build a working kernel with XFS support is frustrating me
to say the least. Should I post ksymoops output, am I doing something
obviously wrong, or should I provide more [detailed | organized]
information? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
