    SubjectCompile error: 2.4.15-pre4 (-tr) in kernel.o (cpu_init()) - advice req'd
    hey all

    hope this doesn't turn out to be spurious traffic...


    linux-2.4.14.tar (kernel tar)
    patch-2.4.15-pre4 (merge)
    fix-2.4.15-pre4-tr.diff (benlahaise; don't mind the filename, i just
    reckon calling the patch for the patch,
    patch-2.4.* is brokenness)

    there is some weirdness on the box i'm compiling on; please check the
    following for obvious causes...
    pre-compile make's worked fine, but the compile itself crashed out

    arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o: In function 'cpu_init':
    arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text.init+0x27f9): undefined reference to 'cpucount'
    arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text.init+0x2831): undefined reference to 'cpucount'

    Can anyone spot if it's code or meatware related??
    Thanx, I won't be able to sleep till I know what's going on :)
