If anyone has had success compiling xkernel under linux please let me know.  I am interested in the standard xkernel as well as compiling it in simulation mode.

I NEED to be able to compile it...please help.

Which version of Linux?  Have you tried the kernel How-TO at http://sunsite.unc.edu/Linux/docs/kernel HOW-TO?

xkernel is a networking testbed.  It is a networking kernel which  is not compiled into the linux kernel, it sits on top.  It is good because it allows a simulated network for developing protocols and then allows you to go to a direct implementation without having to rewrite code.  It also does a lot of diagnostics on your protocol, as well as timing info, signal quality info...  My problem is that it states in the docs that is should compile on Linux (as well as SunOS, IRIX...) but I can't for the life of me get the damn thing to compile, in either regular or simulation modes.

We have it here at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.  It is for one of our CS courses.  Right now, I know where the compiled versions are fos Solaris and NeXTStep, but I will check if we still have our Linux copy around.  I will get back to you in a little bit.

OK, I found the student who compiled it.  I will give you his email address and you can discuss it furthur with him.  If you would, post how he solves the problem (for future reference).  His email address is mgrcmm@rosevc.rose-hulman.edu.  Tell him Chris King sent you.  Hope this helps!

Go ahead and send the compilation errors when you write him (include as attachment).  He said he should be able to help if he sees them.
