help compiling new kernel
I'm trying to compile a smaller faster kernel to replace the prepackaged one i'm currently using.
Currently running recent stable version of debian lenny (net install)
linux kernel 2.6.26
when i try to run menuconfig as root, i get this:
sonofcluster****:/home/flyinglow# cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.3/
sonofcluster****:/usr/src/linux-2.6.3# make menuconfig
make: `scripts/fixdep' is up to date.
scripts/kconfig/mconf.c:91: error: static declaration of ‘current_menu’ follows non-static declaration
scripts/kconfig/lkc.h:63: error: previous declaration of ‘current_menu’ was here
make: *** [scripts/kconfig/mconf.o] Error 1
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
xconfig exits in a similar way. Any ideas what i've missed?
I don't have much programming experience, but i have gotten things to compile and run in the past. Just don't know what to do with this error message.
thanks for any help, Zack
