Install errors on HP Qlogic 2340 driver 7.07

In trying to install the 7.07 driver on a DL380 with RHEL 3.0 U2 I am receiving an error stating that " Compile did not succeed".
The version of RHEL does not have all packages installed and I am wondering if there are any dependencies for this driver?

Thanks,

Alan

do you have kernel-source package installed?

rpm -qa |grep kernel

you should see the same release for kernel[-smp] and kernel-source.

Can you send us output of "make" (install?) command?

No, I'm trying to use the rpm procedure that you get from the HP web site, which has an install script.

Re: Install errors on HP Qlogic 2340 driver 7.07

Very strange! I've compiled 7.0.7.03p3-19 qla version with kernel 2.4.21-40 without any problem right now.
Can you send me full output of "rpm -U" command, not just the tail?

To say the truth, I don't understand why your compilation failed.
Do you use the latest qla release - 7.0.7.03p3-19 ?

It was copied from the HP web site last week and I'm assuming that's the latest 7.07 release.

Actually the latest on our web site is 7.07.03-14, is there a new one somewhere?

I've tried this one

"HP StorageWorks FCA2214/FCA2214DC FC HBA Driver for 2.4.x Kernels
version 7.07.03P3-19 (13 Apr 06)"

We tried this one and had the same result. The compile died with the same error message.

Re: Install errors on HP Qlogic 2340 driver 7.07

Very strange!
The only difference I see between my and your RHEL3 is that I have 2.4.21-40 kernel (update 6?) and your system has kernel-smp-2.4.21-37.EL.
In fact, the second difference is that your kernel configured with SMP.

I'd like to suggest you two steps:
1) just remove kernel-sources; rm -rf /usr/src/linux-2.4*; install kernel-sources

and if 1) doesn't help, may be make sense
2)to upgrade kernel (and kernel sources ) to 2.4.21-40
2)

Re: Install errors on HP Qlogic 2340 driver 7.07

If you do a

rpm -qa |grep kernel

on your RHEL what does the list look like? Do you have the same modules as my version or are there some that are different?

Re: Install errors on HP Qlogic 2340 driver 7.07

see below:

kernel-source-2.4.21-40.EL
kernel-2.4.21-32.EL
kernel-source-2.4.21-32.EL
kernel-utils-2.4-8.37.12
kernel-doc-2.4.21-32.EL
kernel-doc-2.4.21-40.EL
kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.31-13
kernel-2.4.21-40.EL

and my current kernel is kernel-2.4.21-40

I have some compile failures of the same qlogic driver not too long ago. The problem I ran into was my version of the gcc compiler was not version 3.2.3

Because of an Oracle compile I had to do, I had to back rev the gcc compiler to 2.9.6 and forgot to return the gcc compiler back to 3.2.3

This may or may not be your problem, but do a "gcc -v" just to make sure.

Eric,

You are correct, we figured this out late yesterday afternoon and it was due to the older version of the gcc compiler.

Thanks everyone for the help!
