Fedora2 kernel 2.6 compile. cant even make config (fixdep.c full of errors)


Hey.

im not new to compiling kernels.
ive compiled loads of 2.4 and 2.6 kernels under redhat9 and fedora core 1.
(infact i was running a 2.6.6 under fedora core 1)

fedora core 2 comes with a stange kernel that makes nvidia graphics card driver un-happy.
so, i did the obviouse...

install kernel compile utilities, and development tools using the Add / Remove applications.

decompress the source.
cd into it.

make mrproper (not usually needed, but the read-me's say do it anyway)

then make config
make menuconfig
make xconfig
make gconfig.

NONE of them worked.
seems the scripts/basic/fixdep.c is full of compile errors.

whats going on !!!!!!!

am i missing xome dependency's ???

this is very strange !

no rule to make target...
thats a different error to what i got.

what did you do to get the ekrnel source ?
Code:
tar -xjf kernel-source
cd kernel-source
make mrproper
i fixed my rpoblem, it seemed i had missed a vital dependency from the install... glibc-devel i think.

un-install all your developemnt and kernel development programs, and re-install them,
this fixed it for me.
