    make dep problems?

    Hey guys,

    I am running vanilla debian testing (some unstable) w/reiserfs (you know the unofficial bootdisks) and it works great. *But...

    I want to run 2.4.16, so I downloaded 2.4.16 and I put it in /usr/src and it extracted into its linux folder (I had nothing else in /usr/src before and now after the extraction all I have is /usr/src/linux). *So, I cd'ed into the directory and ran did a "make config" and configured everything and that went fine. * Then I ran a *"make dep" and it had a ton of errors about stuff missing. *

    I will post the exact messages when I get home from work, but I was just curious if anyone has encountered anything like this and what you did to fix it. *Also, if you don't have this problem what versions of gcc and whatever else you use to do the kernel update process...

    Thanks a lot !!

    I saw it all, and I did it my way...

    apt-get install kernel-package kdb
    make-kpkg --revision 1.0 kernel_image
    dpkg -i ../kernel<whatever>.deb
    lilo

    And a reboot

    I have seen that before, but how does it work? *Looks like I have been doing it the hard way....

    Do you still have to download the source?

    Okay, having to download the source was a dumb question for your procedure Lovechild. But, how do I know what support is built into the stock debian kernels?

    Download source
    configure
    run the kernel-package trick

    Ohh, the joys of debian - remember we are up to standard, no patched kernels for us !
