Description of problem:
Rbuilding the kernel resulted in four major failures
that need urgently to be fixed.

no longer works.
I hope bugzilla gives me a chance to append the full explanation.

well you did a make install before make modules_install... that's not good
since make install needs the modules installed ;(
Comment 3 David A. De Graaf 2002-10-06 14:34:13 EDT
I swear, I've used the sequence
   make dep clean bzImage install modules modules_install
successfully in the past.  I copied it from somewhere; I'm not capable
of making this up.   :-)
However, your logic is impeccable.  So I repeated the experiment with
   make dep clean bzImage modules modules_install install
and everything worked perfectly.

1)  The new modules directory was automatically created -
2)  There were no complaints about devlist.h or classlist.h.
3)  The initrd-2.4.18-14nPb.img was correctly made and it boots.
4)  There are still 5691 warning messages, but as I said, 
they're only warnings.

Sadly, my pcmcia adapter still doesn't work, so I have no wireless
communication.  I still get
  bind 'orinoco_cs' to socket 0 failed: Operation not permitted
but that someone else's problem, I guess.

I withdraw this bugzilla report.
Thanks, arjanv
