    make modules failed

    I've been compiling the kernel on a laptop and keep getting errors at the same place in make modules (kernel is already compiled). It's for the ip4v module. Any clue as to what this could be?

    If you didnt add this already do it now, thats defintley the problem if you didnt add make_modules install.

    cd /usr/src/linux
    make clean
    make menuconfig
    make && make_modules install

    So I was able to get make modules to finish by installing qt libraries, using xconfig (instead of menuconfig), and then loading the default .config file and making very few changes to make sure my kernel was as close to the default Mandrake kernel as possible.

    When trying to reboot into the new kernel (booting to the old kernel still works) I'm having a pretty major problem. Does anyone know what this error message means?

    jbd: version magic ' 686 gcc-3.4' should be ' preempt K7 gcc-3.4'
    insmod: error inserting '/lib/jbd.ko': errno=8
    Loading ext3.ko module
    ext3: version magic ' 686 gcc-3.4' should be ' preempt K7 gcc-3.4'
    insmod: error inserting '/lib/ext3.ko': errno=8

    because of this im getting error 19 when trying to mount the root partition and the final error is

    Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel

    This is not booting. Anyone know how to fix this? I changed the names of some of the files around (i added the "custom" part to the filename). This was so that I could boot either version of the kernel in case the new one didnt work. I'm not willing to change that back just yet, because if it doesn't work, then I have no way of getting in and editing anything. I'd have to start from scratch.
