Compiling kernel, getting error at PPP section, please help...

I'm having the same problem trying to get PPP 2.2.0c drivers into the
kernel, and I even tried "make config clean depend zImage." Here's
what I get when the kernel build (v 1.2.13) bombs:

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

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-1.2.13/drivers/net'
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-1.2.13/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -m486 -I../../net/inet -c ppp.c

make[1]: *** [driversubdirs] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-1.2.13/drivers'
make: *** [linuxsubdirs] Error 2

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

I followed Michael Callahan and Al Longyear's PPP 2.2.0 installation
instructions to the letter - or at least I thought I did.

Can some kind soul tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

        I had problems also until someone suggested upgrading
to kernel 1.3.35.  I did and everything is working fine now.

1. Compiling kernel, getting errors at ppp section, please help...

I get an error when compiling kernels 1.3.30 - 1.3.35 when it
gets to the ppp seciton after compiling the file systems. I cut
out the errors I am getting and pasted them below. I have to
compile a new kernel which has PPP and CDROM support. The problem
is, my CDROM is configured for the default I/O port and IRQ values.
I need 0x320 and IRQ 10 for a mitsumi 2x drive. I have the latest
slakware (elf) distribution 3.0.0. Everything else seems to compile
without fail..???? :(

Any help will be greatly apppreciated!
