I d/loaded and untarred the 2.4.1 kernel to my hdd and ran make config,
make dep, make clean, make bzImage, make modules and make
modules_install. First time I've ever done this so was quite pleased to
see it work.
Backed up my existing /boot/vmlinuz and copied the new bzImage to that
location. Rebooted - all fine, using the 2.4 kernel.
I then realised I had misconfigured something I needed and followed
exactly the same procedure as before, changing my config along the way.
Now, bzImage never gets created - it runs through the procedure, but the
file never appears in arch/i386/boot (or anywhere for that matter).
What have I suddenly done wrong? Will there be a log of errors
somewhere (couldn't find it)?
On a separate note, I tried removing the whole /usr/src/linux directory
so I could start again from the tarball but all I get is 'Cannot unlink
linux: Is a directory' (I am using rm -df ...) has something major gone
