Hi,

recently I've compiled a new kernel and to my surprise I found
out that it needs the as86/ld86 combo. (ok ok, never really noticed,
I've compiled enough kernels before :). However, as86/ld86 aren't in
the binutils package where I suspected them to be. Any pointers please ?

(btw - I removed these two programs a long time ago coz I've changed
 from a.out to ELF and after that have never really made a new kernel )

I got the source (as86.tar.Z) from ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/OS/Linux/kernel/src/
when I was converting my system to ELF.

Good Luck.

1. as86/ld86 problems compiling 1.3.35 kernel

As always, I'm afraid I may be posting a question that's been answered
a billion times, so please bear with me if that's the case.

I'm attempting to compile the 1.3.35 kernel, which I've done successfully
before.  Of course, that was before I updated my system to be ELF compatible.
In so doing, I upgraded to gcc-2.7.0 and binutils-2.5.2l.17.  Now when I try
to compile the kernel, as86 complains that it doesn't know the -0 option.
This occurs near the end of the process, in arch/i386/boot.

Should I just go back to an older version of as86 (and ld86)?  Or is there
something else I'm missing here?

Thanks in advance for any help.
