Description Hardy Mayer 2000-03-30 02:04:31 EST
The following error appears:
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts kconfig.tk
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.3.99/scripts'

make: *** [xconfig] Error 2

Make menuconfig works fine.
I downloaded the full (non-rpm)  sources from kernel.org and this problem
does not occur.

I discovered that a similar bug was reported as Bug 9901 for RH 6.2
Comment 2 SB 2000-05-15 07:49:59 EDT
Download linux-2.3.99-pre8.tar.bz2 from kernel.org and use those sources.  make
xconfig works and it is a more stable release than rawhide package anyways.  Even
after running successful make menuconfig on the RH package the kernel still
failed to compile when I did a bzlilo whereas the sources from kernel.org don't.

Fixed in the current kernel sources.
