Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The one in RedHat 9.0 Shrike

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make xconfig
2.load athlon single processor configuration
3.make deps
4.make bzImage / make install
4.make modules <- here it gives error and never go till the end

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-04-11 13:25:54 UTC
you forgot "make mrproper" as first step

Comment 2 Peter van Egdom 2003-04-19 22:18:34 UTC
I've seen this before (see Red Hat Bugzilla # 75152).

I can reproduce this bug (88129) by doing :

  "cd /usr/src/linux-2.4"
  "make clean"
  "make mrproper"
  "make xconfig" (choose 'load configuration from file')
                              \ enter "configs/kernel-2.4.20-athlon.config"
  "make dep && make bzImage && make modules"

The compile process then aborts with :

fs/fs.o(.text+0x350f2): In function `zisofs_readpage':
: undefined reference to `zlib_inflateInit_'
fs/fs.o(.text+0x351f4): In function `zisofs_readpage':
: undefined reference to `zlib_inflate'
fs/fs.o(.text+0x352a6): In function `zisofs_readpage':
: undefined reference to `zlib_inflateEnd'
fs/fs.o(.text.init+0xaac): In function `mnt_init':
: undefined reference to `init_rootfs'
fs/fs.o(.text.init+0xf31): In function `zisofs_init':
: undefined reference to `zlib_inflate_workspacesize'
make[1]: *** [kallsyms] Fout 1
make[1]: Weggaan uit map `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8'
make: *** [vmlinux] Fout 2

This behaviour can be fixed by copying the configuration to ".config" first :

  "cd /usr/src/linux-2.4"
  "make clean"
  "make mrproper"
  "cp configs/kernel-2.4.20-athlon.config .config"
  "make xconfig" (choose 'save & exit')
  "make dep && make bzImage && make modules"

This really looks like a bug to me. The reporter of this bug does nothing wrong.

It's also probably a dupe of Red Hat Bugzilla # 75152.

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2003-12-17 00:18:25 UTC
make xconfig is flaky. A make oldconfig afterwards usually rights it
too.  This isn't something that's going to be fixed before EOL of RHL9
