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:1578: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
fbcon.c: In function `fbcon_scrolldelta':
fbcon.c:1615: `__SCROLL_YMASK' undeclared (first use in this
function)

function)
fbcon.c:1619: `__SCROLL_YPAN' undeclared (first use in this
function)
fbcon.c:1620: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
fbcon.c:1617: warning: unreachable code at beginning of
switch statement

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.
