OK, maybe I don?t really want the answer to that question, but I do need some help compiling my kernel.
I am trying to compile a custom kernel, version 2.4.5, with advanced networking support so I can do some traffic shaping and advanced routing.
I have updated all my utilities and tried several different configurations of the kernel, but it always fails to load after instillation, It gets as far as loading Kernel??????.. and seems to get stuck. Ctrl-Alt-Del still works so it can?t be completely dead.
I have been digging through every doc I can find and seem to be doing all the right things. I even tried to compile a basically stock , no special features enabled, kernel and had the same trouble.
Utility Required Installed
o Gnu C 2.91.66 2.91.66
o Gnu make 3.77 3.78.1
o binutils 126.96.36.199.25 2.9.5
o util-linux 2.10o 2.11e
o modutils 2.4.2 2.4.6
o e2fsprogs 1.19 1.19
o reiserfsprogs 3.x.0j 3.x.0j
o pcmcia-cs 3.1.0 Not Installed
o PPP 2.4.0 2.3.8
o isdn4k-utils 3.1pre1 3.1beta6
I also get numerous warnings when compiling the modules in 2.2.14. Is the code just dirty, or is it something I am doing wrong? I am trying an older kernel out of desperation. At least it boots.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
