updating to kernel 2.4.22 error 'make modules' concerning aic7


This has been somewhat hindering my progress for the last couple of days. I'm re-compiling my kernel in order to update it to 2.4.22 and everything goes fine until i run 'make modules' - this is the error i'm getting:

make -C scsi modules

Sorry there's so much, i'm not sure how much is needed. I've accertained this is something to with the scsi modules but cannot get any further then that. I don't actually have any scsi devices on my system but am aware i need scsi support in order to use my cd burner (as is the standard with linux?), which is very important for me.

Any help would be fantastic.

Thanks,

Dan

don't worry about this, i systematically went through all the scsi modules in xconfig and removed the majority as they weren't needed - including aic7. I've re-compiled and this time all has gone well, now it's time to sort grub and pray it all works.

Cheers,

Dan
