Exclamation bzImage.. help

Hi hi..

I have RH 7.3.. I need to compile the kernel..

make menuconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install


the bzImage file.. doesnt exists!!..

Then I tried this:

cp .config ../.config_backup
make mrproper
cp ../.config_backup .config
make menuconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install

And too... I cant find the bzImage:

/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage <-- doesnt exists the file.

I tried this:

/usr/src/linux-version/arch/i386/boot/bzImage <-- the same (I know linux & linux_Version, its the same).

Please help me!.. I need to get working a compile, and If I cant find the bzImage file.. what could I do?

Perhaps obvious, but just in case:
- were you doing this as root (or su)?
- were you in /usr/src/linux or /usr/src/linux-version when you ran the make's?

After you run make bzImage, do you see any errors? If it exits abnormally, it might not create the bzImage file.

I compiled the kernel.. cause I needed to patch something.. but the stupid of me:

force -p1 -s -E --force < /..

The errors.. I thing come from the --force.. cause that patch asks me for files of sparcīs sysstems.. so I preffer a .--force.. but I thing.. I need to skip that questions.. :S

Im reinstalling the kernel.. (RH 7.3).. cause I F***ed it
