error 2 trying to compile 2.4 kernel

I have been trying to compile a kernel for my AMD K6-II, 550 Mhz, 256 ram system. Don't want all the superfluous 'stuff' (ethernet, pcmcia etc) that does not apply. Have tried from a clean install, with all kernel development options selected

make mrproper (if not new install)
make xconfig (set up all options as wanted)
make dep (no errors apparent)
make clean (no errors apparent)
make bzImage which chunks along for a while then kicks up:

: undefined reference to `acpi_table_print_madt_entry'
arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text.init+0x5b6b): In function `acpi_boot_init'
: undefined reference to `acpi_table_init'

arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text.init+0x5be1): In function `acpi_boot_init':
: undefined reference to `acpi_table_parse_madt'
:make[1]: *** [kallsyms] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 2
[root@localhost linux-2.4]#

0bviously no bzImage is made and I have wasted my time. Have tried this from both console within KDE and from XTERM without desktop running.

help appreciated

I think linux and Fedora specifically is about 80% to market readiness if the last bugs can be worked out. ADD/Remove programmes does not work. I find some RPM 's must be installed from XTERM to install correctly.

Managed to get a 2.6 custom kernel compiled (using qconfig), no probs, installed modified GRUB all auto, have also installed KDE 3.2, seems fine. above problem was possibly a syntax error in a makefile script? any comments?

hey TonyJ,
I'm having exactly the same problem you were having with the 2.4 kernel.

Have you discovered what was the problem?

Just turn off the Advance Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) and other power-related features in the kernel and compile again. I think you should be fine.
