I too use the
Code:
genkernel --menuconfig all
method with great amounts of success. However, I don't believe that xorg is causing this complaint. The .c extension is just used for files containing code written in C (and their headers go in a .h file).

What those errors are saying to me is that there is a problem with the encryption methods etc. I would try to compile without encryption support, just to see if that works. Just a suggestion, though.

I was pointing that all these errors with .c files indicate of a more serious problem. In my case back then it was other .c file. Definitely xorg doesn't belong to the specific error posted here.

About the encryption methods it may be correct but I am not sure. That's why I suggested either use genkernel which proved to compile the kernel every time I tried. And regarding make & make install etc, I suspect that maybe the kernel is tainted ( I saw one of the posts regarding ipw2200-firmware) and that's why I suggested to use first make clean and then compile with the rest of the commands. Once a friend helped me with ipw2200 and he did make clean. In that attempt he even succeeded to compile with ipw2200 built in the kernel. After few months when I had to install new gentoo I managed to make it work only as module. I don't care as long as it works. ;-)

i think you are right about the xorg.i think mine is in really bad condition and i have to fix it.you think i should do that first?and then try to start all over the kernel compilation?
thanks for the replies

Dude Thanks alot! I've tried so many things to make it work, and nothing actually helped me till I've found your post!

P.S - It was a little hard for me to understand what to make and what to unmark in the kernel configuration because I didn't knew where those settings located in. I've found it ofcource, but it would be nicer if you guide trough the people who ain't so good with kernel compilation and guide them to get to the right menus and submenus.

Thanks again!


You are welcome. About menus and sub menus, I posted in my first post. Networking is in the main menu and all the settings are sub menu. The same holds for Device drivers and all the sub [/quote]menus. Perhaps, few more tabs would have clarified more. I"ll keep it in my mind for my next howto.

ipw2200 is not related to xorg. first solve the ipw2200 issue with make clean, make, make modules_install, etc or
Code:
genkernel all
. If your kernel is already set as I mentioned in the first post (you don't need to use --menuconfig anymore) , just clean it or use genkernel.

No Problem. Will try to do my best to help.

1. Either use
Code:
make clean
make menuconfig  and set the kernel options as I posted in the first post
and then
make modules_install make install etc (I don't know exactly the order, so it's up to you to compile it correctly)


OR

Code:
genkernel --menuconfig all and set everything as in first post
then do everything as posted in the first post

TRY this:
Code:
 emerge -C ipw2200-firmware
genkernel --menuconfig all (here check that everything is ok as I mentioned in the first post
emerge  ipw2200-firmware

check that you have it added to modules autoload /etc/modules.autoload/kernel-2.6
reboot

and then see if everything works.

# emerge -C ipw2200-firmware

--- Couldn't find 'ipw2200-firmware' to unmerge.
>>> No packages selected for removal by unmerge

#genkernel --menuconfig all

(some options that i had them built in my kernel now they were changed like modules,i don't know if this is good)

* >> Compiling 2.6.22-gentoo-r5 bzImage...

and stops there..(i don't know if this takes long time so i will wait)

Yes, wait. it takes some time. ~20-30 min.

so you didn't have ipw2200-firmware. after it will compile emerge ipw2200-firmware. The modules where changed because in the first place your kernel didn't compile. Now that you arranged as it should and hopefully the kernel will compile you will get it done

one more thing,i tried to make menuconfig and everything is changed,options that i added aren't there and other options cannot be removed,it gives you the choice of <*> built in or <M> module(maybe because i used genkernel?)!i'm telling you anything that i see in order to help you,if you don't like tell me to stop it,ok?

It's not a problem about your questions. your settings changed to default because the kernel didn't compile.

Still I want to see output of grep and tail. I can send you my configuration of the kernel, but I need to see lspci output and cat /proc/cpuinfo.

If I send you my configuration and my hardware, cpu is similar to yours you won't need to compile the kernel anymore.

Alternatively try to emerge gentoo-sources and configure kernel again.

you are quite lucky

I have almost similar hardware as yours. I can send you my .config and you can put it in /usr/src/linux directory.

After you copy my .config file you will have to do

Code:
genkernel --menuconfig all

check that everything is ok in terms of those settings


where would you like to get my .config file? here or by email or private message?

Also can you post now
Code:
grep -i ieee802 /usr/src/linux/.config


about eix it's quite a useful program
Code:
emerge eix
update-eix
eix gentoo-sources

about the eix thanks,i searched a little and gave you the info you asked

ok,about your .config but it won't have any problem doing this?of course if you say it,i have to trust you.i don't mind wherever it's easier for you

In my case i have
Code:
CONFIG_IEEE80211=y
CONFIG_IEEE80211_DEBUG=y
CONFIG_IEEE80211_CRYPT_WEP=y
CONFIG_IEEE80211_CRYPT_CCMP=y
CONFIG_IEEE80211_CRYPT_TKIP=y
CONFIG_IEEE80211_SOFTMAC=y
CONFIG_IEEE80211_SOFTMAC_DEBUG=y


and maybe this could have caused the problem.

where do you want me to send you my .config?

I have some extra settings regarding video for linux which you won't need. you may choose to leave it or delete it.

one more question(you have a lot of patience)
when i was using the normal steps for kernel compilation i was

Quote:
mount /boot
cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzimage /boot/gentoo-kernel
umount /boot
reboot

now with

Quote:
genkernel --menuconfig all


all the above are done automatically?
