Kernel 2.6 make modules error on RH9


I need to compile the new kernel for Red Hat 9. However, I'm having trouble on "make modules":
Quote:
In file included from drivers/message/fusion/mptscsih.c:68:
drivers/message/fusion/linux_compat.h:11: redefinition of `scsi_device_online'
include/scsi/scsi_device.h:229: `scsi_device_online' previously defined here
drivers/message/fusion/linux_compat.h: In function `scsi_device_online':
drivers/message/fusion/linux_compat.h:12: structure has no member named `online'
make[3]: *** [drivers/message/fusion/mptscsih.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [drivers/message/fusion] Error 2
make[1]: *** [drivers/message] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2
The kernel does run, but when it gets to the login screen, it seems to be stuck in a loop that goes between something that closes when opened and the console login screen. Plus, not all modules work for obvious reasons. Any advice?

Thanks,
Tommy

there was some instruction on installing a 2.6 rpm

u can do this

1.check for source again,download again if possible

2.get a 2.6 rpm for redhat 9 ,install that,use that config file to build ur kernel,if that goes fine then keep that options as base options and keep working on that

regards
