Kernel compilation "make dep" error
 
when I try to compile the new 2.4.22 kernel for redhat, after configuring the kernel, I try to run "make dep" and i get this error:

gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -o scripts/mkdep scripts/mkdep.c
make: gcc: Command not found
make: *** [scripts/mkdep] Error 127


Any ideas?

I too get errors in the 'make dep' step, if when configuring I an too eager and turn on or off too many options. I think this means that some dependency failure occurs in the configuration, so I would advise you to check whether this occurs for every kernel compilation, or your custom compilation only.

Well maybe upgrade to 2.6. No more make-deps reuired in that case. ;) I made the switch yesterday. having a few problems, but what is life without problems!
