I'm using the kernel-source package and trying to compiling the
source (in /usr/src/linux-2.4 directory) with "make config", "make dep",
"make clean", "make bzImage", "make modules" and "make
modules_install". I also try to compile a RHEL3 kernel-source without
the sysrq-m changes on other RHEL3 systems and get the same errors...

If I try to compile a kernel source provide by kernel.org, I don't
get the errors above, and the kernel compile works. When I try to
compile the RHEL3 kernel-source, the "make config", "make dep", "make
clean" and "make bzImage" commands works fine but when I run "make
modules" command I get the errors above. I think that is some issue with
the RHEL3 kernel-source package because other kernel sources (not Red
Hat kernel) compile without problems.

I will try to compile the kernel using rpmbuild and check the
results, plus the slabinfo informations.

Thanks again,

Márcio.
