can someone look at http://members.aol.com/trekboy07/vmware.jpg I am getting kernel compile errors and i am doing everything in the FAQ. what i do is i untar the file from the arch 4.0 cd into /usr/src/linux-2.4.20 and run make menuconfig take file from /usr/abs/base/kernel make some changes and replace it, and run "makepkg" i have done this in VMWare and on a Thinkpad 600 and get the same errors.
thanks for the help
It seems like you bumped into a little bug in the linux kernel (at least, that's what google says, see the top link at http://groups.google.com/groups?q=undef … htool_gset )
I already sent a patch for this for 2.5 but I didn't know the problem
also exists in 2.4. The following patch fixes it:
--- linux-2.4.20-test/drivers/net/Makefile.old 2002-11-29 17:46:47.000000000 +0100
+++ linux-2.4.20-test/drivers/net/Makefile 2002-11-29 17:47:22.000000000 +0100

Zwane changed this driver to use the MII support library but he
accidentially forgot that this requires mii.o.
ok now that i know the problem exists with other people do i need to redownload the kernel or a pre-patch and if it is a pre-patch then how do i apply it or does it have instructions...
well the files i got from JK worked (the kernel compiled) but it would not boot something about it being too big. When i get home from vac. i am going to try and apply the prepatch my self and see what i get
please post replys in this form.
