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.

sounds like you didn't use kgcc 
(see bugs 18012 and 18060)
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2000-10-14 13:52:12 EDT
Use kgcc. The kernel doesnt do everything as nicely as it should so gets caught
out with the new
