I'm compiling a kernel downloaded as the latest stable 2.4 release from ftp.kernel.org around Jan. 27, and I did have a 2.4.24 before, which had the same problem (I deleted /lib/modules/2.4.24 before I did a make mrproper this time, as well as the /boot/[bzImage|System.map]). This is a p2 with basically nothing but a semi-old but reliable IDE HDD, 64MB RAM and a RealTek 8139 compatible card in it, on an oldish ASUS mobo with nothing integrated. It's running RedHat 7.3 right now but as a public LAMP it's not really secure enough to rely on, and I would much rather trust it than totally cut off its external access.
Uh.... I got it, though unfortunately I'm not certain exactly what I did to make it work. First I enabled sound support without actually building any modules, and did the same with amateur radio support. Then I opened up the .config file and set
after which it compiled and installed fine, and is now happily ticking away.
