    Error during "make bzImage"


    RedHat 9 is installed on a multiprocessor machine. The kernel version is 2.4.20-30.9smp. For debugging purpose I have to compile this kernel. I performed the following steps:
    - Downloaded kernel-source-2.4.20-30.9.i386.rpm and installed them.
    - Instead of "make config" I copied the configuration file /boot/config-2.4.20-30.9smp to /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-30.9/.config
    - make dep
    It gave the following error "md5sum: WARNING: 1 of 13 computed checksums did NOT match" but the exit code was 0.
    - make clean
    - make bzImage
    This was unsuccesfull with exit code 2. There were large number of errors and warnings. Some of the errors are as follows:

    and so on...

    Can anyone guide on this? I also did "make checkconfig" which gave many such lines:
    arch/alpha/kernel/irq_smp.c: 127: need CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK.
    arch/alpha/kernel/osf_sys.c: 1388: need CONFIG_OSF4_COMPAT.

    arch/alpha/kernel/smp.c: 1050: need CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK.
    arch/alpha/kernel/smp.c: 1142: need CONFIG_DEBUG_RWLOCK.

    why dont u try to 'make menuconfig' for change.. rather than using an existing config file.. maybe some config options are causing a problem. Also i read somewhere that developers of distros often add some features to the existing kernel to enhance performance.. so couldnt hurt to do the config over again.

    Error during "make modules"

    Thanks for your help. I succesfully compiled the kernel and even rebooted into it. My mistake was I had not done make oldconfig.

    Now I have another problem. I installed a wrong patch for kdb (kdb-v4.4-2.6.6, instead of kdb-v4.3-2.4.20). The patch did not install properly there were .rej files. But I still compiled the kernel succesfully. Now since kdb did not work I reinstalled the kernel source (even deleted directory linux-2.4.20-30.9 in /usr/src). But now the "make modules" exits with errors like below:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    many such error before this......

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    As far as I know (from strace patch -p1 kdb.....)the kdb patch has only modified file in the linux source tree which I have installed fresh now. I have no idea why the same steps of compilation taht passed before are failing now. Is there any way that I can restore the initial state?

    thanks,
    Vibha
