Linux Agent — Can't Find a Kernel to Load

Symptom


I have Linux podchains 2.6.28-11-server #42-Ubuntu installed.

Linux Agent 64-bit installer says my OS is unsupported. Running the 32-bit installer works, but can't find a kernel to load.

Cause


Our build server doesn't have a pre-compiled module, and we're not finding the headers on your system needed to build the module. The kernel headers were not installed.

Resolution


1. Install the missing kernel headers:

# apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

2. Run Linux Agent installer.

Tip: You can run the installer with the "-- --yes" flags, it will do an unattended install, accepting all defaults. This will install the agent and build a module if possible. If all your systems use the same kernel, it would be fairly easy to build the module once, and copy it to the other systems during the course of the scripted install.
