RHEL 6 dependencies

Veeam Logoby promodel » Tue Jul 25, 2017 1:29 pm

Hello,

I am running into problems getting the correct dependencies installed for VAL.
I am not very experienced in Linux, so I hope its something easy.

I am running this version of RHEL
# uname -a
Linux 3.8.13-44.1.1.el6uek.x86_64

and I run these commands
wget http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/e ... noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
yum install gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers dkms make bzip2 perly

but them my kernel headers seem to be the wrong version
# rpm -qa | grep kernel-headers
kernel-headers-2.6.32-696.6.3.el6.x86_64

cause I get this when I go to install veeam:
Module build for kernel 3.8.13-44.1.1.el6uek.x86_64 was skipped since the
kernel headers for this kernel does not seem to be installed.

If anyone has a guide to getting the correct dependencies installed for this I would appreciate it.

What do you get if you do yum update first?

Can you try "yum install kernel-devel-3.8.13-44.1.1.el6uek.x86_64" or "yum install kernel-headers-3.8.13-44.1.1.el6uek.x86_64" ?

Can you see a folder with "3.8.13-44.1.1.el6uek.x86_64" in /lib/modules ?

While it's possible this is a RHEL system, this kernel is an Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise variant. Are you sure it's not Oracle Linux (which is a Redhat derivative)?

Regardless, you must have kernel headers which match your existing kernel. You can get the required packages from Oracle, by downloading manually from their Unbreakable Linux Repo. This kernel is from Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel release 3, which you can find here:

Thanks for you suggestions. You are correct i guess it is Oracle Linux

I got it to install by running these commands before I installed VAL

yum install kernel-uek-devel-`uname -r`
yum install kernel-headers
wget http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/e ... noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
yum install gcc dkms make bzip2
