Kernel won't compile under 7.0
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:11 EDT
I can't get a kernel to compile under RH7. (Specifically, kernel 2.2.16).
This machine was upgraded from RH6.0. I can compile the same kernel fine
under 6.2. Under 7, towards the end of the compile, an error is given
about a badly formed #define in checksum.S. I tried doing a clean install
of 7 on another machine and couldn't compile it on that one either. I
ended up having to compile the kernel on a 6.2 machine and copy it on to
the one with 7. Modules seem to compile correctly.
