    Make error, 2.6.17.11 kernel


    I am trying to compilie my own kernel for suse 10.1 . I get through 'make mrproper' and 'make xconfig' alright. When I go to 'make' it works for a while, then comes out with this error:

    Code:
      CC      fs/splice.o
    fs/splice.c:1381: error: redefinition of ‘link_ipipe_prep’
    fs/splice.c:1302: error: previous definition of ‘link_ipipe_prep’ was here
    fs/splice.c:1419: error: redefinition of ‘link_opipe_prep’
    fs/splice.c:1340: error: previous definition of ‘link_opipe_prep’ was here
    make[1]: *** [fs/splice.o] Error 1
    make: *** [fs] Error 2
    I am trying to compile kernel 2.6.17.11 with GCC 4.1.0 (Whatever comes with suse)
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I found the problem. I patched the kernel from 2.6.17 to 2.6.17.11 and the patch didn't apply correctly. I reapplied the patch and everything works like ti should.
