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
Steps to Reproduce:
for example copy configs/kernel-2.4.18-athlon.config .config; Make oldconfig
3. make modules
won't compile abi/svr4/sysinfo.c
It will compile abi/svr4/sysinfo.c
disabled the modules and recompiled but some people with want them.
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!)....
Yes, I made bzImage before modules and it compiled fine.
