Bug#268188: kernel-source-2.4.27: libata.o not compiled as module
On Sat, 28 Aug 2004, it was written:
It seems that your config is broken and it's not the job of 2.4's config
system to pedantically correct configs during a make *config run (2.6
does this a lot better.) So, I'm tagging this bug wontfix.
Ok, I had already found out that I needed to change the config in order to
get it to compile. I understand that it is not the job of 2.4's config
system to pedantically correct configs (although I may not like it) and
that this is the job of the human trying to compile his/her custom kernel.
However, humans sometimes need to be told that some given combination of
configuration options is broken and they should not attempt it, perhaps
just a line somewhere in Configure.help stating that one should not
compile a scsi driver into the kernel while compiling scsi support as a
module. Ok in this specific case this combination is clearly broken, and
in my case it was not intentional, just an artifact of make oldconfig, but
still, a note somewhere in the docs would be useful.
Thanks anyway, bye
