Compiling 2.2.14

After running make bzImage I recieve the following error:
make[1]: as86: Command not found
make[1]: *** [bbootsect.o] Error 127
make[1]: *** [bzImage] Error 2

The compiling looks to be running along just fine until this point.  Any ideas?

can you provide more details, such as
what distribution you're running?

on my RedHat 6.2 system, I had similar error before. dev86 package provides it.
/root/bin# rpm -qf /usr/bin/as86
dev86-0.15.0-2
find proper package for your installation which provides as86, then you can do it.

You might try going to http://www.kernel.org and getting a new even number kernel if you don't already have one. Most linux distributions make modifications to the source.

Hello,

If you are running 2.2.x where x is equal or greater than 10 but less than 14, I think there is a PATCH. You don't have to compile the entire kernel. Check out www.kernel.org

Also, if you are using Corel Linux, I believe you can use the Corel Update in the XWindows to install the kernel almost automatically without this hassle.
