problem configuring 1.2.13 kernel

problem configuring 1.2.13 kernel

Post by SCB » Fri, 23 Feb 1996 04:00:00


I have a GUS soundcard so I want to configure my kernel.
I have installed the 1.2.13 sources, but the 'make' command fails:
Here is the output at the point that it goes wrong.

ld -qmagic -Ttext 0xfffe0 arch/i386/kernel/head.o init/main.o init/version.o \  
        arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o arch/i386/mm/mm.o kernel/kernel.o mm/mm.o fs/fs.o net/net.o
        ipc/ipc.o \
        fs/filesystems.a \
        drivers/block/block.a drivers/char/char.a drivers/net/net.a drivers/sound/sound.a \
        /usr/src/linux/lib/lib.a -o vmlinux
ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start; defaulting to 00fffe0
arch/i386/kernel/head.o(.text+0x18): undefined reference to `__edata'
arch/i386/kernel/head.o(.text+0x1d): undefined reference to `__end'
arch/i386/kernel/head.o(.text+0x7f): undefined reference to `_x86'

Can anyone tell me what's wrong??? Personally I thing that it has something to do with the
unreferenced sybol _start.



1. strange problems 1.2.13 --> 2.0.0 --> 1.2.13


I have some strange problems with the new kernel source tree...

after the installation of the new sysvinit-2.62 the linux-2.0.0 kernel
complains sh:/bin/bash cannot execute...
with 1.99.7 this works fine
and at least I'm totally unable to recompile the 1.2.13 source tree due
some strange asm errors in main occurring in asm/io.h referenced by
bugs.h  (also within the asm tree). Of course I checked the appropriate
links to for the linux source tree /usr/include/linux

Please help....
