Description yves balasko 2003-06-04 17:42:56 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
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.
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
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).
