Exclamation redhat linux 9-Make menuconfig


Hi,

If I use this command, [patch -p1 < kernel1.patch] , what is the right output I should get?
kernel1.c?
kernel1.h?
kernel1.o?

I am using Red Hat Linux 9 Professional edition, and I want to configure the kernel and compile the above module by using [ make menuconfig ] command and [make dep; make modules] but I get this error message:

Makefile:36: /Rules.make:No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target '/Rules.make'. Stop.

Please help.

*.c or *.h (*.o is a compiled file). Which exactly it dpeneds on the actual patch you're installing.

Which directory are you runing the command from? It should be from main source dir of the kernel. Are you sure you have correct/full kernel source installed?

I'm not sure what kernel version RedHat nine uses.. if it is 2.6.0 or higher, you do not need the "make dep" it will give you an error like:

Code:
root@tcm # make dep
make: *** No rule to make target `dep'.  Stop.
Just a thought....

Thanks a lot to Mara and visaris. I have them figured out. I used the wrong directory.
