Description Mark Lane 2002-04-09 12:07:25 EDT
Description of Problem:
On make modules, sysinfo.c has errors. One appears to be a typo in a 
header file (compile.h instead of compiler.h) but even after that was fixed I still got an 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.4.18 from Slipjack 7.2.93

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
for example copy configs/kernel-2.4.18-athlon.config .config; Make oldconfig
2. make 
3. make modules

Actual Results:
won't compile abi/svr4/sysinfo.c

It will compile abi/svr4/sysinfo.c

Additional Information:
I just 
disabled the modules and recompiled but some people with want them.
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-10 10:23:04 EDT
Ok the issues seems to be that you didn't do a "make bzImage" before doing make
modules. technically it is required, but only few modules actually compile-time
depend on it (runtime depend they do!)....
Comment 2 Mark Lane 2002-04-10 13:44:49 EDT
Yes, I made bzImage before modules and it compiled fine.
