Hi, am having problems compiling this on Etch 2.6.25

Here are the last few lines and the errors messages I am getting:

At the kernel preparation phase:

3ware 9xxx SATA-RAID support (SCSI_3W_9XXX) [M/n/?] m
ACARD SCSI support (SCSI_ACARD) [N/m/?] (NEW) aborted!

It looks like from the message "aborted!" that Control-C was pressed by user to cancel the
kernel configuration. To verify this, further information is needed from the original submitter.


Press ENTER/RETURN key on every question the Kernel configuration needs.

This phase is not controlled by tc-installer, but it calls the kernel scripts,
which prepares the needed things.

I am the original submitter, apologies I didn't realise the original post wasn't monitored anymore.

Crtl-C wasn't pressed during the install...

Many thanks,

I have noticed that the installer is automatically answering all questions. How can I manually answer them?

Jari Aalto (jari-aalto) wrote :

The installer uses the same Kernel .config file as what the current running kernel is using (see /boot/*config*), so
manually answering questions is not supposed to be happening.

There has been substantial chnanges recently, so if you possible, please try again. The call
will automatically retrieve latest updates:

  tc-dpkg --auto --install

I believe this bug has been fixed in latest release.
The modules compile in Debian / kernel 2.6.26.
Please open new bug report if the problem still persists.
