Subjecterr, compiling...
Hey, y'all

(linux-config couldnt help me)
let me start off by saying that ive been using linux for a few years now
and at times i like to think i know what im doing (ive even started a
few others off with their own linux boxes)
BUT
i seem to have run into some trouble after compiling a 2.1.xx kernel...
(was it 2.1.31?)
that kernel works fine, and i can recompile that version of the kernel
as many times as i want
the problem is that now, i can no longer compile any other kernels
by ANY, i mean no more 2.0.xx, no lower 2.1.xx, and no higher 2.1.xx...
im sure that you guys can see this might pose a problem

anyway, the kernel compile dies all the way at the end:
(begin horrible death)

(end horrible death)

and the compile just dies...and its sooooo close to finishing!
ive gotten and installed new binutils, new libs, new gcc and i still get
the same error!

this is killing me!
what else is implemented in compiling a kernel that i have overlooked in
updating/replacing?

ANY help is greatly appreciated
thanks,
mike
