PSP 7.70 source rpms

I need some guidance...

I had an opportunity to do some maintenance work on a small (2 node) oracle cluster but when I applied PSP 7.70 several of the source rpms failed with the same error.
qla2xxx: version magic '2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp SMP 686 REGPARM 4KSTACKS gcc-3.2' should be '2.6.9-43.0.3.ELsmp SMP 686 4KSTACKS gcc-3.4'. The E1000 driver broke with a similar message.

The nodes are identical DL380 G4s - 2@3.6 ghz processors, 4 Gb ram, 2 multipathed FCA 2214 HBAs to an MSA1000

I'm not real sure how to approach this problem, The gcc version from the CDs is 3.4 and obviously the drivers were compiled at gcc-3.2.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Shalom,

PSP 7.70 was problematic for me.

I had to go get drivers from glogic and use those instead of 7.70.

To help further, I'd need to know the version o f the OS you are trying to install into. It would seem that this release is designed for RH 4 and your system may be another OS.

Re: PSP 7.70 source rpms

This machine were built on RHEL 4 update 3. Do you think that the rest of the tools from PSP 7.7 are dependent on the drivers contained in the PSP?

Re: PSP 7.70 source rpms

Thought I'd share what I'd found out and how to fix the issue.

Turns out that the problem results after installing the Oracle Applications (maybe the database or asm).

The Oracle installer renames gcc-3.4.5 to gcc.orig and installs gcc-3.2.3 in it's place during the installation. I just reversed the gcc renaming, reapplied the PSP, rebooted, and then re-reversed the gcc renaming (if actually necessary) and I'm good to go.

Re: PSP 7.70 source rpms

Check in the /usr/bin directory to see if there are multiple gcc32* files. If there is you can do gcc -v to check the version # that you are running. You can check the versions of any of the files by directly executing any of the gcc32* files with -v option.

Re: PSP 7.70 source rpms

I'm not sure about the results of an insmod operation. I had a couple of other modules that wouldn't load from source at boot time so I just rebooted and the problem was rectified. I'll dig out my notes and see if I have anything relevant.
