as86/ld86 problems compiling 1.3.35 kernel

as86/ld86 problems compiling 1.3.35 kernel

Post by Ed Jacks » Thu, 30 Nov 1995 04:00:00

As always, I'm afraid I may be posting a question that's been answered
a billion times, so please bear with me if that's the case.

I'm attempting to compile the 1.3.35 kernel, which I've done successfully
before.  Of course, that was before I updated my system to be ELF compatible.
In so doing, I upgraded to gcc-2.7.0 and binutils-2.5.2l.17.  Now when I try
to compile the kernel, as86 complains that it doesn't know the -0 option.
This occurs near the end of the process, in arch/i386/boot.

Should I just go back to an older version of as86 (and ld86)?  Or is there
something else I'm missing here?

Thanks in advance for any help.

1. Problems booting kernel 1.3.35 up


I've got this problem booting kernel 1.3.40.
Right after it says
   Loading linux......
then it hangs solid and a 'd' appears on the top left corner of the screen.
My first guess was it had trouble uncompressing the kernel since it's
511K, of course I could be wrong.
The problems appears on kernel above 1.3.35. My last successful
compile was 1.3.32, didn't try 33 nor 34 though.

I'm using slakware 3.0 ELF with kernel 1.2.13 on a DX4-100 w/h 32 MB RAM and
PHOENIX bios. I'm not gonna trash the screen with detail info about the system
or the configuration yet :), but if anybody has any clue at all of what
the problem might be then I'll be happy to provide some more info on it.

Thank you much.
