    We're currently evaluating TrueImage Enterprise for our office. When attempting to install the Linux Agent I receive the following error message:

    Acronis True Image Enterprise Server Setup failed to build kernel moduels. Consult /var/log/trueimage-setup.log and /var/lib/dkms/snapapi26/0.7.9/build/make.log for error messages.

    Below is a cut+paste from the make.log. I elected to attach the setup.log as I assume it's not as useful and it's pretty long :)

    > cat /var/lib/dkms/snapapi26/0.7.9/build/make.log

    SUSE 9.x doesn't have symbols defined by default, so you need to create them first. Easiest way is to do the following:

    cd /usr/src/linux/
    make cloneconfig
    make prepare-all

    The first "make" will copy all of your current kernel settings, and the second one will generate the symbols needed to build a new kernel (but won't actually build it).

    You'll run into this a lot with SUSE 9.x and third-party tools.

    If have performed the statements above, but the error still occurs. What libraries and packages do I need?

    Kind regards

    We're also testing the Linuxagent on SuSE 9.2 (64 bit Kernel). We've got exactly the same problems and exactly the same error message.

    I tried:

    cd /usr/src/linux/
    make cloneconfig
    make prepare-all success

    On SusE 10 (32bit), ist works fine.

    Any ideas?
