    Compiling 2.0.38 Kernel


    Hi,

    I'm trying to compile the 2.0.38 kernel for use with an embedded distribution of Linux called ET Linux. I am trying to build the kernel on a recent distribution of Mandrake (can't remember the exact distribution number).

    Anyway, I have been told on another forum that it will not be possible to compile such an old kernel on such a new system. Is this true, and is there any way around this? It is really important that I can get a working 2.0.38 kernel because it's part of a project I'm working on.

    Have you tried a "make clean" ?

    Have you tried it? There may be problems with Glibc and such but you can use two versions of Glibc and GCC if you really want to i never have though.

    Randomly choosing this post... have you solved it?
    When using Windows, have you ever told "Ehi... do your business?"
