Description Jeff Lane 2001-02-21 22:51:34 UTC
Just did an Everything install via nfs of RC1.

Install proceeded fine, and reboot successful.  X starts successfully.


IBM Netfinity 3000
PIII 600
440BX motherboard
INTEL USB controller
S3 Virge video card
EEPro 100 NIC

FIrst attempt was kernel compile.
make mrpoper works fine
make oldconfig is fine but halts with options that are new (answering yes
or no works for these)
make xconfig fails with following dump:

[root@jay linux-2.4]# make xconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts kconfig.tk
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.1/scripts'
cat header.tk >> ./kconfig.tk
./tkparse < ../arch/i386/config.in >> kconfig.tk
net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_vs/Config.in: 9: incorrect argument
make[1]: *** [kconfig.tk] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.1/scripts'
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2

make menuconfig successful.

Havent finished the compile yet... but the xconfig thing bugs me.

After I finish the compile ( probably tomorrow) I will update this.

Note, this is done immediately after a new install of RC1, custom install
with everything selected.

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 2001-02-22 04:31:43 UTC
The most correct thing to do is "make mrproper" followed by copying the
correct file out of the configs directory, followed by make config
or make xconfig or make oldconfig.

However, this is still a bug.  :-)

Fixed. The fix will be in the next kernel-build.
