now I'm at a dead end! I cannot get rid of the above message of kernel
Even if I compile the kernel with the original /boot/config-2.4.5-686
-coming with the debian package of the kernel image- the error is the
So, help me please understand which of the two following hypotheses is
Hyp. A (utterly probable):
I'm doing something wrong with the compilation of kernel 2.4.5.
I follow the same procedure I'd been following for the 2.2.19 kernel,
that is, after executing
and loading the /boot/config-2.4.5-686 config file, I issue
