Hi Bent Lee,
you asked for help
I need help with the V6 kernel compilation. I read the Unix setup guide
file /usr/sys/run. I've seen one problem so far with the /usr/sys/run
file. That is
that the two lib files (lib1 & lib2) did not contain any symbols.
When I ran:
# ar r ../lib1
# ar r ../lib2
I got a string of error messages from ld.
which error messages?
But after I did this:
# ar r ../lib1 *.o
# ar r ../lib2 *.o
This might have corrupted your lib files. These two lines are only meant as
templates to replace some files in your archives, that is lib, if necessary.
But replacing an object file is necessary only if you changed the corresponding
source file and recompiled it.
Here are the files supposed to be in lib1:
# ar t lib1
I have these missing symbols
# ld -x l.o m40.o c.o ../lib1 ../lib2
_end (defined by ld if successful)
_iinit (from alloc.c)
_iget (from iget.c)
replace lib1 and lib2 with the original files and it should work!
You might want to consult
for help installing V6.
