2.6.0 - error: unknown pseudo-op: .incbin ??

hi there!

i recently tried to compile kernel 2.6.0 (the final one) but no matter what i'm doing, i'm always getting this error:

server:/hda1/src/linux-2.6.0 # make bzImage
make[2]: `scripts/fixdep' is up to date.
scripts/kconfig/conf -s arch/i386/Kconfig
# using defaults found in .config
SPLIT include/linux/autoconf.h -> include/config/*
make[1]: `arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s' is up to date.
CC init/main.o
CHK include/linux/compile.h
CC init/version.o
CC init/do_mounts.o
LD init/mounts.o
LD init/built-in.o
AS usr/initramfs_data.o
/tmp/ccmfgDUM.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/ccmfgDUM.s:30: Error: Unknown pseudo-op: `.incbin'
make[1]: *** [usr/initramfs_data.o] Error 1
make: *** [usr] Error 2

so before you are asking:
*) yes, i do have config'd it - using make oldconfig first and xconfig afterwards

i tried it without using the initial ramdisk. worked well for a while, but then stopped compiling again with the same error.

help would be appreciated.

First of all. Make sure that you got all the updates for the programs that's listed in the readme file.

I've missed on that myself. *grins*
Run through the full list that's there and see what you're missing.
I'd copy the old .config file to the 2.6.0 dir as oldconfig or something and try to load that into the menyconfig. But that's just my way of doing it.

Hi all,

i have the same problem! I have checked all the versions inside the "change" documentation. Just the update of the binutils failed. There i have a version of 2.10.93 instead of minimum 2.11.

Could this cause my problems?
