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

Post by Ro » Thu, 26 Oct 1995 04:00:00

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!

1. 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

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.
