    well now i got a new problem.
    i'm trying to cimpile a 1.0 version kernel . i get errors stating unable to find class DREG while reloading asm . these errors are present in the lines where i use inline asmand use dx as clobbered register. DREGS could change to to CREGS if i use cx as clobbers in the asm. is it something to do with my gcc????????? or is it the code?

    What system, compiler, kernel, target system are you using/building? You don't provide anywhere near enough information to help you.

    I seem to have these problems when I use a cimpiler as well, which is why I try to find a compiler to use! Sorry - couldn't help myself... silly moment passing...

    Which version of the kernel are you building? Also, I presume you have read and followed the building instructions found on the kernel.org web site? If this is a "stable" version of the kernel, then I doubt very much that the code is incorrect, unless you are trying to build some deprecated/obsolete, experimental, or unstable modules. Then, all bets are off. Also, make sure your compiler is at least up to the version that kernel.org recommends for the kernel you are building. The gcc v4.1.0 is not TOO out of date - my CentOS/RHEL 5.3 compiler is at 4.1.2. In any case, if they are using the dx registers instead of the cx registers, I would assume there is a good reason for it. Unfortunately, I haven't done any x86 assembly programming for about 15 years, before the Pentium was released, so my knowledge base is waayyy out of date in that department.

    What do you mean by a v1.0 kernel? On the kernel.org and The Linux Documentation Project web sites there are docs & tutorials on building Linux kernels.
