  Read the README.modules file.  Basically, you need modules-1.1.87 or so
to get the genksyms program.  I forget where the blatent warning for that
problem originally came from.

When you do make config, make sure you respond no to the question about
updating module versions, or something like that. After I changed my
answer to that, the genksyms problem went away. Or, you could download
the latest modules release, install it in /usr/src/linux/modules, then
recompile the kernel (I've tried both options, and they both worked).

1. Problems while compiling kernel 1.1.93 und 1.1.94

Hello everybody!

Ok, here I am back again. A few days ago I posted, that I have problems
compiling Kernel 1.1.93. Today I tried to compile 1.1.94 on my machine and I
got the same error again.

I am using gcc 2.5.8 and libs 4.5.26 (the standard in Slackware 2.0.1 and
2.1.0), I don't have any networking hardware installed and so I think I have to
include networking support (CONFIG_NET=y) in the Kernel but I needn't have to
include TCP/IP support or so (CONFIG_INET is not set ; CONFIG_IPX is not set).

This worked fine until I tried to compile Kernel 1.1.93, afterwards I am unable
to compile a kernel without TCP/IP. The fun is that I have had the same
problems some 20 or 30 patches ago and suddenly it was fixed.

BTW this error I get. What do you out there think is my problem?

See ya on the flipside,
