help been a longgggggg time since I did a kernel compileCan

Can anyone tell me why I`m getting this error here

[root@myhost linux]# make -s clean bzImage modules modules_install
scripts/Makefile.clean:10: arch/i386/boot/Makefile: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `arch/i386/boot/Makefile'.  Stop.
make: *** [archclean] Error 2

I created a symlink to /usr/src/linux

Need this working so I can get this PITA ATi driver to install

TIA

I had the same problem - got around it by downloading the latest kernel sources from kernel.org

Re: help been a longgggggg time since I did a kernel compileCan

I don't know, but it looks like a very old way of compiling the kernel, yes.  smile

After configuring,

$ make
# make modules_install
# cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz26
# lilo

should do the trick. Although I would suggest that you call it something else than vmlinuz26, and make a new entry in lilo, so you can go back to the old one if the newly made kernel doesn't work smile

Re: help been a longgggggg time since I did a kernel compileCan

why dont you just save the .conf file from menuconfig, rename it to conf and put in the proper abs directory for the kernel, then run makepkg? It would be alot easier. Just a thought. You could look at the PKGBUILD in that directory and see how its done exactly.
