Hi,

   I installed token ring card in my intel machine. I want to recompile the kernel for the toekn ring card. From madge.com web site I  downloaded the device driver for 16/4 pci card. On the OS I backed up lilo.conf, /boot/vmlinuz and /usr/src/redhat/* files. I did not have gcc complier. when I ran rpm -i command it gave dependecy errors. I ran rpm with -nodeps. Then when I typed /usr/src/redhat/make menuconfig it gives "make *** No rule to make target 'menuconfig'. Stop. " error. Could some tell me how to debug this error. Is it because of gcc --dependency error?

Thanks

You don't use /usr/src/RedHat to compile a kernel. That's done in /usr/src/linux which will exist when you install the kernel-source rpm (it's on the RedHat CD). Additionally on RedHat 7.0 only you must install the kgcc rpm in order to build a kernel.

If you are referring to dependancy errors when installing gcc, then I suspect that you don't have a working gcc environment. The solution is to remove gcc with "rpm -e" and then re-attempt the install. Make note of what the dependancies are and install the dependant packages alogin with gcc. You can specify multiple packages on one "rpm -i".
