Description Simon Lange 2000-10-10 17:10:57 UTC
fresh installed redhat 7 (guinness).
system is a dual celeron 533mhz abit bp6 system (ppga)
with an adaptec 29160 und two ibm 18gb lvd drives and
a plextor scsi cdrom
the system has 256 mb ram

after installing redhat (all packages "everything"), i tried to compile a 
new kernel (2.2.17) coz the delivered 2.2.16 is pretty instable and also i 
dont like those "unreal" precompiled kernels.
when compiling gcc (or cc1) send a lot of warnings which sayin things as:
indirect lcall without '*'
using  '%eax' instead of '%ax' due to 'l' suffix
checksum.S:231: badly punctuated parameter list in #define
and so on

well, currently its INPOSSIBLE to create a new kernel...

I never had those problems with 4.0 5.0 5.2 6.0 6.1 and 6.2
I tried several precompiled kernels as the linux-up linux.smp and the 
enterprise version. the etnerprise version does crash while bootup! the 
nly which boot up are linux-up and linux-smp. well it seems pretty strange 
to me that a former working distribution (6.2) is now just a piece of 
crap. :(

btw: remove this shamefull grpahical lilo! what will come next? 
mousesupport no commandline at all... instead of makin those stupid things 
modify lilo and your distribution that it supports reiserfs and hpt366 
controllers. ;)

sounds like you didn't use kgcc 
(see bugs 18012 and 18060)
