It should be in /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage, but if
you got "Error [vmlinux]" it probably didn't finish compiling
so it won't be there.

Mine (debian) goes into /usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.27/arch/i386/boot/zImage

You could try:

    find / -type f -name vmlin\* -print        # probably "vmlinuz"

If your compile is clean, it will just go back to the prompt at the
end -- there's no messages.  If you're getting an 'error' message of
any type and gcc returns to the prompt, then something went wrong and
you need to track down the problem.

If you can't figure out the problem, post some of the error messages
to this newsgroup.  The command line

make zImage 2>error.file

will redirect all error messages to the file error.file while allowing
non-error messages to go to the screen.

I think the final image goes into /usr/src/boot.

I think you'll do better with
make mrproper
make config
make dep
make zImage

The make mrproper just puts everything back as it should be,
and probably only needs doing once.

make clean is undoing some of the effect of make config &
make dep, so make zImage can't work.

Check /usr/src/linux/README for more authoritative information,
including the targets make menuconfig and make xconfig, either
of which you'll find much more fun than make config.

You should bear in mind, when posting to usenet for help, that:
  - if your mail address doesn't match your posting domain, or is
    hotmail.com or similar, or both :-), people may think you're
    trolling and ignore you;
  - reports of vague, generic symptoms like:
     >it says Error [vmlinux]  or something like that
    may lead people to assume you're trolling by providing
    insufficient information for a useful reply, and ignore you.
    If you have gpm working, using it to grab the actual message
    with maybe a few lines of context will greatly improve your
    chances.

Hope the hotmail clears up,

John P.

1. I can't make zImage with "make zImage"

Hi, dear,

After I done "make  dep", ran "make zImage as README file included
"linux-2.3.12.tar.gz".
But, when I run "make zImage", got a message with "Error 1", "Error 2".
What's problem?
Who can answer me?

It's a error message followed.
