    Subjectclean before or after dep?
    I'm having a problem building a Red Hat kernel

    It looks a lot like:

    The error message is:
    make[4]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-2.4.18-10/drivers/pci/devlist.h', needed by `names.o'. Stop.

    The fix proposed in <>
    is to reverse the order of clean and dep:

    a kind soul pointed out that I should do:

    make clean dep
    make bzimage

    instead. Works. Learned a new trick :-)

    Now this seems to contradict
    which specifies, in step 5:
    bash# make dep
    bash# make clean

    Which is the right order for clean and dep?

    I've always assumed that they could be combined, as in:
    bash# make dep clean
    Am I wrong?

    Where is this documented?
