SmartStart Redhat Enterprise Workstation 3

I have a DL320 and have loaded RH Enterprise Workstation 3. I am trying to load the SupportPak and receive the follow error can someone please help me decipher what is causing the failure.

# ./hpasm start

The hp ProLiant Event Logging Driver is not available
for this Linux kernel: 2.4.21-4.ELsmp

Looking for sources to build 2.4.21-4.ELsmp
ls: /lib/modules/2.4.21-4.ELsmp/build/include/linux/version.h: No such file or directory
ls: /boot/vmlinuz.version.h: No such file or directory
ls: /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.21-4.ELsmp.version.h: No such file or directory

/lib/modules/2.4.21-4.ELsmp/build/include/linux/version.h does not exist
Please load the appropriate sources to rebuild module.

Re: SmartStart Redhat Enterprise Workstation 3

You need to install the kernel-source package from your installation media.

This will then allow the HPASM to build it's modules against the current installed kernel.

Once that is complete, you can remove the kernel-source package again.

Please note hwoever that if you update the kernel, you'll once again need to install the kernel-source to get the hpasm modules rebuilt.
One long-haired git at your service...

Re: SmartStart Redhat Enterprise Workstation 3

I have a similar problem with installing the hpasm package on my DL360 running RHEL 3.0 ES

I do have the kernel-source rpm installed. I have attached the whole screen output form the install but follows is the snippet from the error part.
-------------------------
Turning on snmpd script at runlevel 5.
ln: `/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S50snmpd': File exists
Starting HP Server Management Drivers and Agents, please wait ...
ls: /boot/vmlinuz.version.h: No such file or directory
ls: /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.21-9.0.1.ELsmp.version.h: No such file or directory
The hpasm RPM installation failed!
See /opt/compaq/cpqhealth/cpqhealth_boot.log for Health Driver details.
See /var/spool/compaq/cma.log for Agent details.

Re: SmartStart Redhat Enterprise Workstation 3

Do the files in the original erorr exist or is Stuart's suggestion what creates them?

Also, wondering a bit why we're running a Workstation OS on a server?

I'd take a close look at the hpasm documentation and make sure all pre-requisites are fulfilled.

Re: SmartStart Redhat Enterprise Workstation 3

did you check if PSP matches your kernel?

Did you install kernel sources?
Did you make a
make oldconfig
make dep

to check all configuration files existrs in the sources directories?

What is strange to me is that you should have found these errors during installation.

Peace, R.
