Description Orion7stars 2000-11-20 17:18:11 EST
When I try to compile/(install) my newly made kernel it stops.
Gives errors!

Is there an update for this problem?

Fill in Form(A chose 7.0 but what does 7.0 J mean?? 

I'll try to email the spesifics soon.


p.s. I know someone how has the same problem! 
So that's Two.

I believe that J means Japan. 

I'm having compile problems with RH 7.0, any kernel (tried 2.2.14-05,2.2.16, and 2.2.17; same errors), on any hardware.
I'm getting "Pasting would not give a valid preprocessing token" in floppy.c, cdrom.c, tcp.c, tcp_input.c, and tcp_ipv4.c
during the compile. It will continue until it tries "cc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include -D__ASSEMBLY__ -traditional -c
checksum.S -o checksum.o" at which point it give the error "badly punctuated parameter list in #define" and stops. I have
upgraded all libraries to glibc-2.2-5.

make that 4 people...
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-11-24 00:41:14 EST
Use kgcc, not gcc. This will eliminate the error with checksum.o
(it's actually a problem with the kernel source.)

Where does one get kgcc?
