Problems compiling linux-2.1.16 -- pseudo-op ".rept"?

Post by Chris Laa » Fri, 20 Dec 1996 04:00:00



When I attempt to compile linux-2.1.16, gcc complains about unknown
pseudo-ops ".rept" and ".endr".  These seem to have been added in
linux-2.1.8, and modified in linux-2.1.15.  I didn't get the errors
before because the last 2.1.x I compiled was 2.1.5.

Is this linux's way of hinting that I need to upgrade gcc?  I'm running
2.7.0 (which I didn't think was that far behind the current version).

Any ideas?
