IA64 – Updated to 4.16-rc3..

Just updated the HP RX2600 to Kernel 4.16-rc3, and apart from an odd quirk at compile time, all went OK..

 ..............
Building modules, stage 2.
 MODPOST 98 modules
 GZIP arch/ia64/hp/sim/boot/vmlinux.gz
 File "./arch/ia64/scripts/unwcheck.py", line 19
 print "Usage: %s FILE" % sys.argv[0]
 ^
SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'
make: [arch/ia64/Makefile:78: unwcheck] Error 1 (ignored)
..................

Despite this, the compilation completed OK, and the system booted without any issues:

.......................
[ OK ] Started Login Service.
[ OK ] Reached target Multi-User System.
[ OK ] Reached target Graphical Interface.

  1. Have you tried changing #!/usr/bin/python to #!/usr/bin/python2 as that script is not python 3 compatible.
    Or try converting the script to python 3 with 2to3.
