Description Spider 2000-10-12 01:40:53 UTC
before any configuration would be compiled, we had to do make distclean and
reconfigure, or it would hang somewhere around:
 In file included from ksyms.c:18:
 /usr/src/linux-2.4/include/linux/kernel_stat.h: In function `kstat_irqs':
 /usr/src/linux-2.4/include/linux/kernel_stat.h:98: `smp_num_cpus'
undeclared (first use in this function)

also is there some inconsistence between make menuconfig and make config?
I'm wondering most around the cpu specific changes arch/i386/config.in
since they weren't included in first attempted config (menuconfig) but with
make config they were...

You need to run 'make mrproper' first.

Comment 2 Rex Henderson 2000-12-04 17:37:02 UTC
Given the advice, this package is still badly broken. I still cannot get the 
kernel to compile. But it is not all RedHat's fault. I downloaded the kernel 
source from www.kernel.org and had similar problems dependant on the settings I 
chose (like if I chose a cpu model above i586, I got the same errors).
But the RedHat release takes this a step farther. I cannot get ANY  
configuration to compile...
