New kernel and bzImage problems....
Hi all,
First up this forum is excellent!

I have been trying to follow the many guides on upgrading to the 2.6.x kernel, i am very much a noob and am having some probs. I have been trying to follow DrOzz's guide, when i try to make the bzImage it always ends up with these errors

include/asm/semaphore.h:139:warning:'warn_unused_result' attribute directive ignored
make[2]: *** [drivers/eisa/eisa-bus.0] Error 1
make[1]:*** [drivers/eisa] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2

afterwhich i cannot locate a bzImage file......

i am using a nforce chipset, redhat 9 2.4.2 kernel

if any other info is needed, please let me know....

One other question, it is stated to try not to load the ext3 filesystem as a do i avoid this?

Thanks guys!

heh, i answered my own question, but..
lol, i just took out ISA support from xconfig, work a treat, but as for my second question, that still stands, what is meant by taking out ext from the modules - dont even know if that terminology is right, sorry!

where does it say that ext3 should not be loaded as a module? The docs do say:
Be aware however that the file system
of your root partition (the one containing the directory /) cannot
be compiled as a module, and so this may be dangerous.

this is relevant if you use ext3 as the filesystem for your root partition. You can compile ext3 support into the kernel (generally, there are three option: don't compile at all; compile into the kernel; compile as module) and you have nothing to worry about.

mank thanks for the reply
thanks for your input, i posed the question poorly and probably misunderstood what i read. To clarify, my root filesystem is ext3, but by default i take it it isn't compiled as a module anyway, correct?

I'm not sure what the default is (probably, the default is to compile it in). You can check when you do
make xconfig
make menuconfig
