Description of problem:
Kernel compilation stops with errors.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date -if kernel-source
2. cd /usr/src/linux-2.4
3. make mrproper
4. cp configs/kernel-2.4.21-i686-hugemem.config .config
5. make menuconfig (and just leave)
6. make dep
7. make clean
8. make bzImage
9. make modules  

Actual results:
make -C aic7xxx modules

Comment 1 Rik van Riel 2004-07-07 11:19:30 UTC
Instead of "make menuconfig" you'll want to run "make oldconfig" twice.

The reason for running it twice is that the config file shipped by Red
Hat is machine generated and the config language in the 2.4 kernel can
only resolve dependencies in one direction.

After that it should just compile.  It does here...

Comment 2 Mindaugas Riauba 2004-07-08 05:58:56 UTC
Sorry for false alarm. The problem was that Oracle install requires 
nRHELAS3) /usr/bin/gcc to be gcc 2.96 from compat-gcc. After I edited 
Makefile to use normal gcc compile succeded without any problems.
