First of all, I put this post in slackware so I can work to eliminate the possibility that I am having trouble compiling because of the distro I'm working from.
Anyways, here are the questions: has anyone ever compiled a kernel for a processor architecture other than the default i386? Anyone know the exact steps you need to take to do this? I am trying to do it for MIPS64 architecture. This is what i do:
1) unzip a 2.4.x kernel into /usr/src
2) change to the directory
3) copy the premade kernel config file into the directory
4) 'make menuconfig ARCH=mips64' <-- that actually loads a default mips64 config but i want to use another config file so i just specify that at the bottom of the menuconfig program
5) 'make dep ARCH=mips64'
6) 'make bzImage'
And immediately I get allll of these errors (note: i get the same errors if I use their default mips64 configuration, instead of mine) http://home.comcast.net/~stray_dog50.../mips64-errors
