Compiling problems with 1.2.11

Compiling problems with 1.2.11

Post by Mark W. Hunt » Tue, 11 Jul 1995 04:00:00

   Has anyone else had problems compiling the 1.2.11 kernel
with Sound Blaster support? I've gotten errors the 3 times
I've tried to compile it with 2 different archives. I had no
problems compiling the sound support in under 1.2.9 so I'm assuming
something that was added in the new release is the cause of the
problem.. Any ideas?



1. Problems compiling new kernel 1.2.11

I got new kernel 1.2.11 (my old one is 1.0.9) and tried to compile it.
I followed all the steps correctly.
created symbolic links, did "make config", "make dep", "make clean"
and everything went well.
THen i did "make zImage"
and then I got these messages:

make[2]:entering directory /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/compressed
gcc -I /usr/src/linux/include -O2 -DSTDC_HEADERS -o xtract xtract.c

ld: malformed input file (not rel or archive) /usr/lib/ () <----- MAY BE
                                                        THIS IS THE ERROR !!

make[2]: [xtract] Error 1
make[2]: leaving dir /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/compressed

make[1]: [compressed/vmlinux] Error 2
make[1]:leaving dir /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot
make : ***[zImage] Error 2

But I have "vmlinux" file created. It's not compressed.
Also I'm wondering how to find the version of gcc we are having.
Any pointers please..
