RedHat 2.1 Install and new kernel build

RedHat 2.1 Install and new kernel build

Post by terry » Thu, 21 Mar 1996 04:00:00

Hello Group;

First I should explain that I have Yggdrasil Linux distribution running
fine, and does everything my child or I have attempted to do. FVWM is
configured ready to run, and works rather well ;-)

We also have have Slackware 3.0 running, pretty clean but there are
annoyances that should have been caught by the slackware folk. FVWM is
barely functional :-(

RedHat 2.1 a different beast. Installed almost everything. Logged in
and attempted to build a new kernel. RedHat is using gcc 2.7.0 and
make zImage was dying on gcc internal compiler errors.

We even hit a kernal panic stating the a virtual memory request could
be completed.

The disk and swap space are fine, mke2fs -c , and mkswap -c returned no

Yggdrasil and Slackware both rebuild with no problem.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

1. Building Ghostscript3.53 on my RedHat Linux 2.1

I think that the path to the X libraries is wrong in your Makefile.  The
standard location is /usr/X11R6/lib, not, from what I can deduce from the
info above, /usr/local/X/lib.

And, no, you do not need Motif.  libXt, libXext, and libX11 are standard X11
