Description Harry Gold 2002-10-25 21:29:04 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
I need to build modules for lp, parport and ppa to use my ZIP drive and 
printer. Using kernel 2.4.18-14, I do a bzImage compile. I need try to compile 
the modules using "make modules" The first module that is attempted to 
becompiled is the lp module from /drivers/char. I get numerous warning messages 
but I will attach the modules.out file with all of the error messages

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.4.18-14

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Build bzImage kernel with parport, lp, and scsi/ppa set as modules
2.attempt to make modules after kernel compile is finished

Actual Results:  Received error messages about invalid suffix on integer 
constant and parse error before numeric constant

Additional info:

RH 8.0 was obtained from mirror site and disks were checked before installation

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2002-10-31 12:31:53 EST
looks like you forgot a "make mrproper" as very first step
Comment 3 Harry Gold 2002-11-01 17:43:35 EST
Using mrproper fixed the problem however, it was not obvious from the 
documentation that I looked at
