looks like you forgot make mrproper etc as first steps

Comment 3 Ted Kaczmarek 2003-02-08 01:46:09 UTC
Make mrproper, make clean, make xconfig, load config from
/boot/config-2.4.18-24.8.0smp(this was config created after kernel upgrade)
, make dep, make modules, poops out by srv3/4 binary support.


Comment 4 Ted Kaczmarek 2003-02-09 22:02:55 UTC
Turns out that up2date when I first went to 2-4.18-24.8 did not up2date
kernel-utils to kernel-utils-2.4-8.28. After updating kernel-utils I am not
experiencing any more issues with compiling. You can close this out, I was not
sure how to identify resolution, was guessing upstream but I'll leave that for you
to determine.
