This is the first time I'm trying to compile a kernel and I've gotten so far as to the point where I'm supposed to "make bzImage"
After starting a make of bzImage everything looks fine, up until the point where I get the error;
mm/filemap.c:1863:16: warning: null character(s) ignored
mm/filemap.c:1863:15283: warning: no newline at end of file
mm/filemap.c: In function `__grab_cache_page':
mm/filemap.c:1863: error: syntax error at end of input
mm/filemap.c:45: warning: 'generic_file_direct_IO' used but never defined
make: *** [mm/filemap.o] Error 1
make: *** [mm] Error 2
I've tried to reconfigure a couple of times (using gconfig and menuconfig)
I would appreciate any kind of help, tips, and/or hints.
I'm using Slackware 11 and the Kernel version which I'm trying to compile is: 2.6.19
