Fedora Core4 x64, no way to compile kernel


A lots of threads about this...

What kind of magic I have to do, to compile kernel on Fedora Core4 x64?

I get an errors when I start make or make all (after performing make menuconfig, of course).

I have tryed to compile it from


and from


... but errors like next occured:

[root@localhost linux]# make all
CHK include/linux/version.h
SPLIT include/linux/autoconf.h -> include/config/*
make[1]: `arch/x86_64/kernel/asm-offsets.s' is up to date.
CHK include/linux/compile.h
CHK usr/initramfs_list
CC arch/x86_64/ia32/ia32_ioctl.o
In file included from fs/compat_ioctl.c:69,
from arch/x86_64/ia32/ia32_ioctl.c:14:
include/linux/i2c.h:58: error: array type has incomplete element type
include/linux/i2c.h:197: error: array type has incomplete element type
make[1]: *** [arch/x86_64/ia32/ia32_ioctl.o] Error 1
make: *** [arch/x86_64/ia32] Error 2
[root@localhost linux]#

I tryed several versions of kernels, one of them I did manage to compiel in Core3 (with same .config file).

Please, help! Thanx in advance!

Hey I did it!

I simply installed new 2.6.12, and it works fine.

I really don't know why 2.6.11 didn't work, but never mind now.

So, people with same problem shoud swich to new version of kernel.

FC4 comes not with the kernel source - to recompile your kernel you had to have downloaded and installed the source tree manually. If you slip up, even a little bit, then you won't be able to recompile the kernel.

When you installed the new kernel - chances are you installed the source as well right? (Definately if it was a vanilla kernel.) So everything will automatically be exactly right.
