Well there you go simple when you know how; just the know how that takes an expert, can't thank you enough for persisting with me.

I'm sorry I couldn't reply earlier, I had to go to town, 60 Km round trip, then try the things you said, which worked fine.
will purge the kernel and all documents related to it then do it again for practice, then the next step is to learn to modify the kernel to suite me needs
that should be worth a laugh or two ...lol.
I really enjoy Linux because it can be tailored to suite your needs, a real peoples OS.
I'll be getting back on the road tomorrow, I retired to the highway, heading north for the winter, so I won't have my PC for a while until I go to ground
somewhere and hook up to mains power again, will post to let you know how I got on with the next kernel.

If I wanted to make .deb packages would this code do it ??
code;

make-kpkg clean
(or just rm -rf ./debian)
$Get_Root make-kpkg --revision=3:2.0.custom kernel_image

Kind Regards and many blessings Miykel

I'm happy you succeeded.

For your question about .deb package, sorry I know nothing about Debian packages, but hopefully some other people will answer you.

Best regards

that's ok mate, something for the future,
How's this for irony, just learned to compile the kernel and the
next dist-upgrade the kernel was upgraded, from the ppa's, from 4.3.0-2.6 to 4.3.0-2.7
damn...blast...gotta laugh.
Regards Miykel

Not solved then, solved now....

I just ran into this same exact error message while compiling kernel 3.7.1. I knew it wasn't any of the above answers since I had successfully compiled kernels 4 or 5 times now. What happened it that I had been using SUDO to get root privileges and not a genuine root shell with su. So, I switched to su - "make " etc and the problem is now resolved. I am not certain this is precisely the cause of the original posters problem, but it seemed like the thread was left in suspence. So, I hope this might help someone.

OOPS.. I apologize. I honestly did not see there was a second page of the thread where it was resolved. I keep doing that on here. Excuse me! Sorry to revive this...
