ksign-publickey.c:2:17: error: key.h: No such file or directory

Encountered while compiling a new kernel and modules for ClearOS 6.2 kernel 2.6.32-279.2.1.v6.x86_64 to obtain the one wireless module that isn't offered (naturally):

scripts/kconfig/conf -s arch/x86/Kconfig

  CHK     include/linux/utsrelease.h

Thanks to this post:

1) Select "Enable loadable module support", then "Module signature verification (EXPERIMENTAL)". Disable it.
2) Then go back to the main menu, select "Cryptographic API" then "In-kernel signature checker (EXPERIMENTAL)" and disable that one too.

Now I just have to cross my paws that this is still a simple matter of compiling a module and not the slightly messier matter of replacing the kernel image as well.

Awesome, thanks a lot
It works


I'm afraid I don't understand the question.

how long do you think your going to be down for?
