User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
I can't make a new kernel with the stock 7.2 release. I'm reading the 
online documentation, and all is going well when building kernel.

Until I enter "make bzImage" per documentation.  The command is not 
valid, and there is no such option in the makefile.  How do I build a 
custom kernel?  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. enter make bzImage 

Actual Results:  make: *** No rule to make target `bzImage'.  Stop.

Expected Results:  Expected it to continue building kernel.

ia64 indeed does not have bzImage target...

Fwiw 7.2/ia64 is end-of-life and only works on merced-class cpus (eg
Itanium I not the Itanium II cpus that are current)

Comment 2 David A. Lethe 2004-01-29 18:50:41 UTC
I have itanium-1 system, and the O/S has been in production for 
several years. This is first time I needed to rebuild the kernel. I'm 
using stock distibution, and the Makefile doesn't create an option 
for bzImage, or anything similar.  make clean, make dep all worked

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
