Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 92295
compilation error of the kernel
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem: I have tried to compile a new kernel for RH 9. The
compilation of the kernel works fine, but the compilation of the modules fail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It suffices to take the default options of the kernel and to try to recompile it
to generate the compilation errors. It seems that the compilation of most
modules is impossible. I have tried to upgrade glibc, but the problems remain.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with the standard options for the kernel
2. Follow the standard instructions make dep, make bzImage, make modules, etc...
3.the make modules phase fails.
I need to recompile the kernel in order to have an alcatel adsl usb modem to
work. The modem worked fine with R.H 7.2 (after some work and a recompiled kernel).
please start with make mrproper...
