Subjectproblems getting 1.3.97 up and running with all the things listed in the documentation/changes
Date
Greetings,
I have been attempting to get my system up and going with all the items in documentation/changes file. Not being particularly familiar with linux, my hardware necessitates that I use a post 1.3 kernel, I am hoping to get all this working and become familiar. This was an attempt to remove the flock warnings and fix the top floating point exception problem. I downloaded the following:
binutils 2.6.0.12
gcc 2.7.2
ld_so 1.7.14
libc 5.2.18
libg 2.7.14
make 3.74
termcap 2.0.8
procps 0.99a

did I forget anything?

I installed the above in the proper places (I think, seemed fairly idiot proof 8*) and ran ldconfig -v several times during the process.

First problem:
All the binaries in procps 099a seem to work except top, everything else runs just fine. When I try and compile however I get errors about speed_t being undefined from /usr/include/termcap.h.

second problem: (bigger than first)

I need to recompile my kernel to use ppp and I get several errors:
ld -qmagic -Ttext 0xfe0 -o vmlinux head.o misc.o piggy.o
ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start: defaulting to 0000000000000fe0
misc.o: in function 'full_inbuf':
... undefined reference to input_data
input_length
input_data

I suspect that these problems may be stemming from something in libc and how I installed it. I tried to follow the instructions for all the things as best I could, but some things didn't have any
at all.

I think a good idea would be to put together a large package of things required to get going in a 1.3.X kernel and that way, one could be sure of getting the whole kahuna.

If anyone would like to enlighten me as to where in the process I may have screwed up, it would be great, please respond via mail as well as the list, it would be quicker.

The post 1.3.9x kernels are great, I have been waiting for nearly a year to upgrade past 1.3.90, spontaneous crashes and all that...

once I can compile kernels again, then I can move on to 1.3.98 <yay>
