Explanation of kernel makefile breakdowns
well you did a make install before make modules_install... that's not good
since make install needs the modules installed ;(
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.
