endian custom kernel howto (used for hyper-v but could be used for anything else where you need to recompile your linux kernel).

this will allow you to run the native hyper-v NIC instead of only the legacy network adapter in hyper-v. It also enables hyper-v guest support inside endian.

taken from vmware thread in the support forums and updated with hyper-v specific instructions.

Getting Started

    Download the Endian 2.5.1 Source Code package, you only need the kernel source code (kernel-2.6.32.43-57.e43.src.rpm).
    Extract kernel-2.6.32.43-57.e43.src.rpm from the downloaded source tgz and place it in your home directory.
    You must have a valid Endian development account. If you don't have one, sort it out before you begin.


1. create a new vm in hyper-v. remove the default nic added to the vm and replace it with 2 legacy nic's - these will be your green & red zone's.
2. install endian 2.5.1 from .iso.
3. do basic install & config of efw with ip addresses & zones.  make sure your internet access is working as normal (albeit with the legacy nic @ 100mbit).
4. enable ssh via gui.

get these files and upload them to your endian fw -

from updates.endian.org/2.5.1/pool/ (login/password = your@email.com:community)

whichever kernel you want from kernel.org (i used 3.11.6 - the hyper-v support seems  in this one).

kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.0/

6. create /usr/src/redhat structure

mkdir -p /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
mkdir -p /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
mkdir -p /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386
mkdir -p /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS/


7. rpm -ivh --nodeps *.rpm


8. set gcc4 as your compiler

cd /usr/bin/
mv gcc gcc3
ln -s gcc4 gcc

9. prepare kernel source tree (to get .config file).

cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/
rpmbuild -bp --target=$(uname -m) kernel.spec
ln -s /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.32/linux-2.6.32.i686 /usr/src/linux

10. untar your new kernel source

cd /usr/src
tar -zxf ~/kernel/linux-3.11.6.tar.gz

11. copy your .config file from /usr/src/linux to /usr/src/linux-3.11.6 folder.

eg cp /usr/src/linux/.config /usr/src/linux-3.11.6/.config

12. add various flags for hyper-v support.

added guest support (you can go through and add these through make menuconfig but you can just add these to your .config file - note these are for 3.11.6 - if you use a different kernel these might be different).

CONFIG_HYPERVISOR_GUEST=y
CONFIG_HYPERV_STORAGE=y (optional).
CONFIG_HYPERV_NET=y

CONFIG_HID_HYPERV_MOUSE=y
CONFIG_HYPERV=y
CONFIG_HYPERV_UTILS=y
CONFIG_HYPERV_BALLOON=y

you can also add this one but video was not right when it booted. didnt look at it too much.

CONFIG_FB_HYPERV=y

13. compile your kernel -

make -j4 all ; make modules_install ; make install

at this point, check your /boot/grub/grub.conf and check to see if your new kernel will the default one. If it is you can shutdown your endian firewall and then remove the two legacy network adapters and replace them with the hyper-v native ones.

reboot and then check dmesg for the correct hyper-v related entries. note you might need to rerun the endian first time setup at this point to reset your network config. (or factory reset it)

then, lastly, efw-upgrade -s to upgrade your endian to either 2.5.2 or 3.0 beta. 2.5.2 worked fine (i needed to reset the boot order in /boot/grub/grub.conf) but i don't know if it will work with 3.0 beta.

Good afternoon

you can provide the rpm of this kernel that you compiled?  Wink

Thank you for the information.

I have successfully followed you guide and now running the Hyper-V integration within endian 2.5.1

Next steps will be to upgrade kernel to higher than 3.11.6 as suggested in your guide.

Also to upgrade to version 3 of endian, although the last time I did that I lost all red connectivity.

When I get it all working I will upload the vhd for people to download.

Cheers

I followed the guide on 2.5.1 - upgrading the kernel and finally upgrading endian to version 3

Good morning Timmeh . I'm trying to make a Endian 2.5.1 work with Hyper-V , but it is not easy. Next step by step you published , I had some difficulties, but I resolved most of them. Finally , I stopped in step 9 and have the attachment error.
Another question is the .config file, it will be generated after a command ? because I did not find and did not see you report it in previous steps .


I thank the help .

Download the VHD in this post: http://www.efwsupport.com/index.php/topic,4219.0.html

I did not create the kernel rebuild guide but I did create the above post ^^^
