Description Jasmin Buchert 2000-10-16 05:42:14 EDT
Kernel compiling is impossible on my i586 and i686 Computer (both computers
are working perfect on several other linux systems). I tryed the included
Redhat Kernel 2.2.16, the 2.2.16 kernel of www.kernel.org and the 2.2.17
kernel of www.kernel.org.
All this kernels wont work!

The error messages while compiling Redhat Kernel 2.2.16-22:
(i compiled with make clean, make dep and make bzImage!!!)

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2000-10-16 05:54:03 EDT
This is a duplicate of bug 18359. You need to do a "make mrproper" before
compiling a UP kernel from these sources. (remember to save and later restore
your .config file, as make mrproper deletes it).
