Issue #2289 has been updated by Venkatesh Srinivas.

We would like to have COMPAT_DF12 enabled, but not COMPAT_43; is it clear why COMPAT_43 is being pulled in when only _DF12 is set in GENERIC?

Bug #2289: 'kldload linux' fails

Author: Thomas Nikolajsen
Status: Closed
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

On master and DragonFly_RELEASE_3_0 from yesterday (25th January 2012)
loading linux.ko kernel module fails,
both using loader(8) and kldload(8):
link_elf: symbol sys_osethostname undefined.
(i.e. both binutils 2.22 and 2.21)

This may be binutils related;
I think it worked with binutils 2.17, will test.

This is using a custom kernel; will test GENERIC.

# kldload linux
link_elf: symbol sys_osethostname undefined
kldload: can't load linux: No such file or directory
