Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-05-23 12:21:51 UTC
please start with "make mrproper" as very first step

Comment 2 Pádraig Brady 2003-05-23 13:49:30 UTC
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 16:34:33 UTC
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 16:46:36 UTC
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 17:53:01 UTC
Sure enough - running make oldconfig twice got it working!

Comment 6 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:40:59 UTC
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/
