Hardware: Pentium III, 800Mz, 512 MB RAM.
After disk format and Debian Lenny installation, the Linux worked well.
Now I am trying to download and compile the latest Linux kernel 188.8.131.52 and have lots of obstacles.
My last try was to following http://howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_debian_etch
as recommended to me in this forum.
I followed all steps except the downloading of the kernel which resides in my disk already. But I extracted it again (without deleting the existing source files, and it showed nothing done, as expected by me).
I did not Apply Patches To The Kernel Sources (Optional), because I do not know of any that I need.
after configuring phase, I made the following 2 commands:
fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-raz kernel_image kernel_headers
After some hours of compilation I received the following output:
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-184.108.40.206'
/usr/bin/make EXTRAVERSION=.3-raz ARCH=i386 \

The following directory is really does not exist:
Can anybody help me please?
