alrighty then. i need some help to keep me using linux. i have lots of trouble compiling my own kernel. every time i get to the "make bzImage" step, it gets about 15 minutes into the make process where i get an ERROR 1, in video card, or sound, or if not those, then something else. i have tried copiling multiple times with kernel 2.4.19mdk (mandrake 9.0) and i alway get this.
there was one time i got it to work. but wheni booted it up, my dvd-rom/cd-rw didnt work.
ALSO, i just compiled the default mandrake 9 kernel flawlessly, and im using it now. but, i saved the configuration file, and when i tried to rebuild another kernel form the configuration file, i got another error (either error 1 or 2.) so there's something wrong here.
what i want to know is how do i fix this and make the stupid error go away, and, are there any "easy-to-use" kernel compiling tools avalible to download? something like where it will auto-detect my current hardware, X free86, and kernel settings, and apply it to my kernel i'm compiling so it will make configuring my kernel earier and faster, and useable.
im about to quit linux if i cant fix this, cause its way to frusturating
