    Issue to install mhVTL on Oracle Linux 5.9

    Jaime Crespo Garcia

      Hi Everyone


      I'm dealing with an issue to install mhVTL on Oracle Linux 5.9, my current operating system. My goal is to install Oracle Secure Backup once that mhVTL is running.


      According to the the link https://sites.google.com/site/linuxvtl2, I have followd this steps:

      1.- rpm --import https://www.elrepo.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-elrepo.org

      2.- rpm -Uvh http://www.elrepo.org/elrepo-release-5-4.el5.elrepo.noarch.rpm

      3.- rpm -Uhv http://dl.atrpms.net/el5-x86_64/atrpms/stable/atrpms-repo-5-6.el5.x86_64.rpm

      * NOTE: By default, the liblzo2_2 is not installed and my box doesn't have a repository to find it. For this reason I have installed this rpm file that let my box access a repository with the liblzo2_2 lib

      4.- yum yum install liblzo2_2

      5. sudo yum install mhvtl-utils kmod-mhvtl


      After running all this steps, I get the following message if I perform /etc/init.d/mhvtl start:

      /etc/init.d/mhvtl start

      FATAL: Module mhvtl not found.

      No kernel module loaded to feed these daemons.


      Need mhvtl kernel module version at least 0.18.11


      Did you remember to compile the 'mhvtl' kernel module ?


      Please see http://sites.google.com/site/linuxvtl2/



      According to this message, I understand, that I haven't install the kernel, so I have downloaded and uncompressed the mhvtl-2013-10-20.tgz file but with no success

      1. tar xvzf mhvtl-2013-10-20

      2. mhvtl-1.4

      3. cd kernel

      4. # make



      make -C /lib/modules/2.6.39-400.211.3.el5uek/build SUBDIRS=/tmp/mhvtl-1.4/kernel modules

      make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.39-400.211.3.el5uek/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.

      make: *** [default] Error 2


      does someone have a tip to help me with this issue?


      Thank you in advance
