Well it could be the version of GCC you're using, I don't know much about Red Hat, but I got a similar thing with i810_audio in Debian, as far as I mind. It's related to your console framebuffer settings. (I think it's under Console Drivers in xconfig). Presumably you have a SIS graphics card / onboard graphics. You could try just choosing the standard VESA driver here (beside the VGA 16 color graphics console option, which'll give you a nice penguin at boot time). as these is just the command line drivers (by which I mean nothing to do with X). Failing that, do gcc --version
and post the output. Then hope someone who knows more about GCC versions than I do comes along.
