I have been trying to update my kernel without success. I have been following the step laid out in "http : / / w w w. linuxquestions.org/questions/answers/150". I have used my old config files. I have used the one provided in step 6 of the tutorial. I have tried make menuconfig. I can make the bzImage but not the modules. I have no scsi devices. I am trying for kernel 22.214.171.124.
In file included from drivers/message/fusion/mptscsih.c:68:

Also, possibly related, I can't apply the patch I get an error:
