Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-08 09:00:22 UTC
did you start with a make mrproper ?

Comment 2 Leonid Mamtchenkov 2002-11-08 09:01:20 UTC
Try do the following:
1. Change into kernel directory
cd /usr/src/linux-2.4
2. Save your config somewhere:
cp .config /root/.config-backup
3. Make a proper cleaning of the kernel directory:
make mrproper
4. Restore your config:
cp /root/.config-backup .
5. Perform all the step necessary for kernel compilation:
make menuconfig && make dep && make clean && make bzImage && make modules

OK, make mrproper did the trick.
Thanks.
