Failure to Compile aic7xxx in 2.4.21-286 Kernel source


I have installed the 2.4.21-286 kernel source on IBM x220. The aic7xxx are needed to read the SCSI Hard drives. Upon running the make install I get the following error as it get to the aic7xxx.

make[5]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-286/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx/aicasm'

Why do you need to use an outdated version? 2.4.21 is old and subject to very serious exploit, I would really recommand to use the latest 2.4.X kernel. Maybe there is a bug in this module in this exact version, trying another one might work.

Ths problem is that SAP requires this level of Linux (ironically I'm not SAP savy and this my first install), and the problem I faced was with the Linux Kernel.
Thanks
