Compiler Error...

I have Slackware 13.37 (32-bit) installed. The desktop I am using is 11 years old and has a Tyan Trinity 400 (S1854) motherboard with a Pentium III 1100 MHz and a VIA Apollo Pro 133A chipset.

I am trying to learn more about Linux and Slackware, so I decided to compile my own kernel using the instructions located at:

Unfortunately, when I issue the command "make -j3" I get these error messages (PS: "-tb75252" is a string that I added in the kernel configuration option for what the author calls <LocalVersion>):

# make -j3
HOSTLD scripts/kconfig/conf

make[1]: *** [kernel/bounds.s] Error 127
make: *** [prepare0] Error 2

Any suggestions as to what I need to do to make it compile? Please keep in mind that I am not a Linux veteran, so please try to be as clear and thorough as possible.

From the error, it seems pretty clear that it doesn't understand the "-tb75252" you have added. Have you tried simply compiling the kernel without that parameter included?

looks like some space typo that you have added to the conf.
