Oh yes, that was a mere typo, I linked the 3.9.3 folder to the linux folder, not the 3.2.2 folder, it is just that I copied the generic instructions, and they used 3.2.2.

You could also try verify downloaded kernel sources, in case you downloaded incomplete archive. See https://www.kernel.org/category/signatures.html

I had the same issue.

Installing bc helped in my case! Did you look exactly over the whole make output, if there were any errors? This bc error can be overseen easy, as it is not very large

Yes, bc has been an added kernel build dependency since somewhere in 3.8 development... (*sigh*)

bc is a sort of command line calculator (don't ask me why it is required for building a kernel! -but maybe other forum members know better)

you can check if it is installed on your system with
bc --version

It is already part of a complete Slackware install. On my Slackware 14, it is in package bc-1.06.95-i486-1.
