Expected results:
no errors

Additional info:
i need a static kernel with e100 and e1000 (does NOT work with EEPRO100)
Comment 1 Ernie Petrides 2005-03-11 18:23:52 EST
Customer-altered configurations are not supported.  But please feel free
to develop fixes and promote them upstream.  If fixes are adopted in the
2.4 upstream kernel, then they are likely to filter down into an e100
driver upgrade during a future RHEL3 update.
Comment 2 Arndt Koenigsfeld 2005-03-13 16:42:34 EST
2.4.21 from kernel.org compiles without errors with same configuration.
I will try to find the differences tomorrow.

Looks like you are missing mii.o...you may want to try this patch...
