I am a newbie to Linux and is having difficulty to configure
my Linux to enable networking.
My system is a 166MMX PC installed with Slackware 3.4
I tried to perform the following to eable networking :
1. did "make config" in the /usr/src/linux directoryafter I have su to
the superuser root.
2. After completing the configuration, proceeded to set the dependencies
within the kernel and clean out old object modules by typing "make dep" then
"make clean" after the first one has been completed
3. Next I then compiled the kernel by typing "make zImage"
What bothered me is what I saw in the last few lines of the output at the
end of the compilation which goes as follows
"Root device is (3,2)
Boot sector 512 bytes
Setup is 4336 bytes
System is 560 KB
System is too big
Make :***[zImage] Error 1
Make :Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-2.0.30/arch/i386/boot'
Make :***[zImage] Error 2 "
4. Install the 'newly compiled kernel' by typing "make
modules_install" . The output then output was that THE FILE REQUIRED IS
MISSING. ( something about *.o)
CAN ANYONE GIVE ME A CLUE WHAT IS GOING ON. I BADLY WANT TO USE LINUX AND
REMOVE WINDOW95 FROM MY SYSTEM.
