Kernel 2.5.57


I have RedHat 7.3, and trying to compile kernel 2.5.57 and keep coming up with errors...
Here's my output from make dep:

[root@lion linux-2.5]# make dep
make -f scripts/Makefile.build obj=scripts
SPLIT include/linux/autoconf.h -> include/config/*
Starting the build. KBUILD_BUILTIN=1 KBUILD_MODULES=
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `include/linux/modversions.h'.
[root@lion linux-2.5]#

Then I go ahead and make bzImage, and there's where the fun starts.... Here's what I get:

drivers/built-in.o: In function `kd_nosound':
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x15800): undefined reference to `input_event'
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x1581d): undefined reference to `input_event'

drivers/built-in.o: In function `kbd_init':
drivers/built-in.o(.init.text+0xf3e): undefined reference to `input_register_handler'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

Now, I have purposfully removed the Sound support. Plus, there is one more qwuestion, what about IPTables? did they yank it?

Thanks
Tibby

Are you aware that the 2.5.x series are the development series of kernels? They are out there for testing, but aren't really intended for general use and may have significant bugs. You'd be a lot better off using the 2.4 or 2.6 versions.

I realized that after I went searching for the headers, and came acrossed a site that said it was still devel kernel. I'm probably going to stick with 2.4.20-20.7 then, need to get a firewall/router with proxy going.
Thank you for your reply,
Tibby

That's probably a good idea. If I understand the kernel numbering system right, the odd numbered series (2.3.x, 2.5.x) are always development, and the even numbered series (2.4.x, 2.6.x) are considered production quality.
