Description Chris Runge 1999-02-21 17:28:11 UTC
RHL 5.8.1 (Beta 1)

I was unable to compile fb devices with
kernel-source-2.2.1-2; I still am unable with
kernel-source-2.2.1-4

here's the last part from the compile before the compile
stopped:

fbcon.c:1576: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type

fbcon.c: In function `fbcon_scrolldelta':

function)

function)

function)
fbcon.c:1620: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type

The compile works without fb devices selected

Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-02-25 09:32:59 UTC
Newer releases of the kernel rpm are okay.
