Trouble compiling kernel 2.6.6
I have RH Fedora core 1 distribution installed in a local system. I downloaded the 2.6.6 kernel source and installed it. Then when ever I try to compile the source, "
make menuconfig (& do a do nothing save)
it gives the error,
make: no rule to make target 'arch/i386/kernel/entry.o, needed by 'arch/i386/kernel/built-in.o'. Stop.
make: *** ...... Error 2.
I have gcc version 3.3.2 20031022 (RH Linux 3.3.2-1).
Previously, after I installed the source fresh, I had directly given make menuconfig -> make & was getting the error like
"invalid '(' symbol, in /arch/i386/kernel/entry.s at line no. 150".
What is the use of the patch file that is available for each version? Should I patch a 2.6.6.tar.gz source with a 2.6.6 patch.
I am still new to Linux.
Thanks in advance.
