make oldconfig dep bzImage modules

Additional info:
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-05-23 08:21:51 EDT
please start with "make mrproper" as very first step
Comment 2 Pádraig Brady 2003-05-23 09:49:30 EDT
sorry I did do that with the same results.
I know this is fundamental and probably
my fault, but it's a new install and I
can't understand why it would fall over.
Comment 3 Peter Fales 2004-01-02 11:34:33 EST
I'm seeing exactly the same thing starting with with 2.4.20-27.9  (I
didn't have the problem with any earlier releases)

To reproduce:

make mrproper
cp configs/kernel-2.4.20-i686.config .config
make oldconfig dep bzImage

This is an up-to-date RH9 system, nothing special installed, and it's 
the same build procedure I've used with all the earlier kernels.
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2004-01-02 11:46:36 EST
sometimes you need 2x make oldconfig....
if that fixes it for you then somehow it broke in the erratum...
Comment 5 Peter Fales 2004-01-02 12:53:01 EST
Sure enough - running make oldconfig twice got it working!
Comment 6 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:40:59 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
