Description Chris Ricker 2001-07-25 01:47:55 EDT
the kernel source rpm included in the kernel source rpm in beta2 is
extremely borked.  Attempting to compile a custom kernel from it fails in
many places because several options in it have been broken to not compile
as modules (floppy, ramdisk, etc.)

Ideally, these need to be fixed to compile as modules.  Barring that, they
need to be fixed to not allow modular compile as an option.
Comment 1 Chris Ricker 2001-07-25 10:43:24 EDT
This is still true with kernel-source-2.4.6-3.1; lots of stuff can be configured
as a module, but will only compile monolithic.

Did you run "make mrproper" before starting the build?
Comment 5 Chris Ricker 2001-07-26 10:12:11 EDT
I'm a moron!  Sorry, I thought I'd remembered to do that, but apparently not....

I'm closing this.
