GCC had a parse error. Meanning that the c code is invaild. Did you by chance add a patch and/or hand change that file?

Can you post lines 340 - 370 of the int13.c file?

Actually it's line 340... something from "usr/include/linux/fd.h". The line says
"void __user *data;"

I did a search with the error msg "variable or field `__user' declared void"
and I found that adding "#include <linux/compiler.h>" to file "fd.h" fixes it,
and it does.

Now, on to some other probs in another thread.

thank you very much NLR!
