I'm getting the following error messege :

The compilation doesn't end properly.

Yes, this is a known bug with CONFIG_MODVERSIONS. If you have
CONFIG_MODVERSIONS turned on, and you build a kernel, and then you change
certain options such as CONFIG_SMP, you will get stale *.ver files and
your build will blow up.


Workaround:


copy your /usr/src/linux/.config file somewhere
make mrproper (or remove your whole tree and re-install it)
put your /usr/src/linux/.config file back
make oldconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install (if you want)


Hope this helps,
