SubjectProblem compiling kernel 2.4.5 with gcc 2.96
Hi folks

When creating the modules (make modules) for my 2.4.5 kernel the compilation
aborts with the following error messages. The problem seems to be related
with Video for Linux and the Iomega Buz Driver.

I have run the ver_linux script as recommended. Here is the output.

[root@localhost scripts]# ./ver_linux

Maybe someone has an idea (other than deactivating Video for Linux).
