make bzImage


i'm running fedora core 2 and i'm trying to compile kernel 2.6.8.1 from source. everything is fine up until i type 'make bzImage' when after a minute it gives me this error;


ld: BFD 2.15.90.0.3 20040415 assertion fail ../../bfd/linker.c:619
arch/x86_64/ia32/built-in. o (.data+0x3a8) : In function 'ia32_sys_call_table' :
: undefined reference to 'sys32_ipc'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1


does anyone know how to go about fixing it?

Are you running a 64-bit CPU or are you attempting to compile a x86_64 2.6.8.1 kernel on a 32-bit machine?

AFAIK there is no more need to "make bzImage" in 2.6.x kernels

I have compiled my 2.6.7 kernel by doing:
Code:
make menuconfig
make
make modules_install
and copy bzImage, System.map to /boot, run lilo, reboot..
