inirtd problem


hi
i have just installed mandrake (10.1 official - 3 cd's).
I am trying to recompile my kernel to make my phone (motorola E398) detected as a USB drive). I am not very good at this.
Even if i just 'save and exit' at the 'make xconfig' screen without making any changes, 'make install' or 'make bzImage' gives me the following error
*********************************************************
/usr/src/linux-2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdk/include/net/sock.h: In function `sock_orphan':

***********************************************************
I read somewhere that its because of gcc versoin . I have gcc 3.4.1.

Also i noticed that my kernel source is
/usr/src/linux-2.4.27-0.pre2.1mdk
which uname -a gives
Linux mybox.com 2.6.8.1-12mdksmp

Thanks

Hi there!

There are several possible reasons why this is happening like:

1. Your GCC version is 3.4.1 which is a very new version which hasn't been fully tested yet
2. You are compiling an unstable kernel
3. You are compiling a 2.4.x series kernel

Are you compiling this kernel from sources or a rpm?

The error occurred in the power section of the kernel, maybe you should go through that section and make sure that you don't have wasted drivers?

You can try to go to http://www.kernel.org and find a newer and more stable version of the kernel

Hope this solves your problem!

Hi again!

I wouldn't recommend newbies to change a GCC version, because it's difficult and many things could go wrong. Then, unless you need some options unique to the 2.4.x kernel series, you could try compiling the 2.6.x series which will give you more info if something goes wrong. If you found your driver in the 2.4.x series kernel, you should be able to find it in 2.6.x series because the Linux kernel contains very old drivers. If you look into /usr/src you may find your current kernel, you can try recompiling it. And by the way, the power option is where you can set stuff like ACPI bios and others.

Thanks a lot. i downlaoded 2.6.11.1 and recompiled it. it is working fine now.
two small problems

1. i am able to booth the kernel without initrd but i need initrd for the bootsplash. i tried using
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-mycustomkernel 2.6.11.1mycustomkernel
the image is created but when i boot using it it does not work. any sugussions ?

2. this is annoynoying . I recompiled my kernel to enable ACM (Abstaract Control Mdem) support . so that i can use my cell as a modem. I connect it using a datacable. it works great, but when the datacable loosens or a call is recieved, and the connection between the pc and cell is disconnected. Linux just hangs. the keyboard, mouse nothing responds.
