2.6.0 make module error


After doing 'make menuconfig' and selecting all the stuff i need, and then 'make bzImage && make modules && make modules_install', about 1/2 way through 'make modules' i get this error ...


  CC [M]  drivers/net/sk98lin/skgepnmi.o
{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:10671: Error: value of ffffffffffffff73 too large for field of 1 bytes at 0000000000006a77
make[3]: *** [drivers/net/sk98lin/skgepnmi.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [drivers/net/sk98lin] Error 2
make[1]: *** [drivers/net] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2
I appreciate that this might be a totally cryptic error, or not one that is exactly 'answerable'. :/
but... Any help in resolving this issue very much appreciated

This because Slack 9.0 do not install by default the new module_init_tools required by the 2.6.0 kernel.
You have a couple of choices to fix this.
- install the newest version of module_init_tools and then recompile the kernel
- upgrade to Slack 9.1 It is ready for 2.6.0

I got a very similar error at about the same time last night when I first tried to compile 2.6.0

I am however running 9.1

I'll go back and look into your suggestion urka58. hope that fixes it.

I'm glad I stumbled across this thread.
