Building kernel 2.6 test 7 on Fedora (RedHat) probs
Hello all,

I'm trying to install the new kernel 2.6 test 7 for fun. Downloaded it at and untarred. No probs at all, running make clean/mrproper and xconfig. No probs. Running make bzImage, 100% done. Running make modules >> error:

I installed the Dutch version of Fedora 0.95 (its based on RedHat, so it doesn't matter much). But I'm actually a newb im trying to lean how to compile the kernel. I'm struck at this make error ("Fout" is dutch for "Error" :)) Could anybody please help?
What if I continue to build and enter "make modules_install" and copy the bzImage? Does it work or will I have to wait until the make modules error is fixed??

How can I solve this "structure has no member named 'tty'" problem?
Thanks a lot folks!!!

MOD: it looks like i'm not the only one...

Same problem drove me nuts while upgrading stock RH9 2.4.20-20.9 kernel to 2.6.0-test7.

There are a few pages that give decent instructions.... look here:
and (an excellent article)

The thing that tripped me up was "module-init-tools", get the latest version at:
(the readme has full install instructions)

By no means am I an expert, I just happened to have had the same problem as you. Hopefully I've helped...

READ EVERYTHING you can get your hands on before doing this upgrade... It ain't called a "test" for nothing.
