I Think I Have What I Need! Going For It! STOP Make Menuconfig ERROR
I have the following and am about to reboot ... pray! :-)
Progeny update/upgrade to Unstable:
Uncommented only unstable in sources.list
dpkg --purge --force-depends libfreetype6
apt-get -f dist-upgrade
(got an error on gdm)
Ran "apt-get -f dist-upgrade" again.
(additional gdnumeric error or something)
Ignored the error and Downloaded the following to /usr/src/ :
(Found this at: http://www.kernel.org )
(Found this at: http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/ )
(Found this at: http://ftp.eecs.umich.edu/debian/pool/main/m/modutils/ )
Copied all three to /stuff just in case something trashes what it expects
to find in /usr/src/ ;-)
Rebooted and broke out to a command prompt (I think I used CTRL-ALT-F2
or something as Progeny-Unstable was loading).
Loaded Linux Kernel 2.4.12 and other stuff using the following instructions
from Stephen E. Hargrove ...
# tar xfvz linux-whatever.tar.gz
(seemd to go well)
# rm -rf linux
# ln -s linux-whatever linux
# tar xfvz pcmcia-cs-whatever.tar.gz
# ln -s pcmcia-cs-whatever pcmcia
# cd linux
(I think you meant "cd pcmcia" because I can see something
called "linux" in /usr/src/ trying to "cd" there gets only an error.)
I did execute "cd pcmcia" and then proceeded ...
# rm -rf pcmcia
# make menuconfig
YUCK! An old 'enemy' returns!
"***No rule to make target 'menuconfig'. Stop"
And I was getting so hopeful ... grrr!
Now what, please?
Sigh ... Thanks! Doc
The following is on hold until the "make menuconfig" problem is resolved.
... configure stuff ...
# make dep
# make bzImage
... edits for lilo / grub ...
... move /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage to boot ...
... /sbin/lilo or whatever you do for grub
# make modules; make modules_install
# cd ../pcmcia
# make config
# make all
# make install
# shutdown -r now
... boot to new kernel ...
for my set up, i was /never/ able to get any 2.4.x kernel to compile with
the "built-in" pcmcia stuff. they crapped out /every single time/. so, i
just delete the pcmcia directory and go with the pcmcia-cs stuff. it's
worked well on both of my laptops.
i'm sorry that i can't help you with grub. i don't have any experience
with it. hopes this helps. its nothing but a scaled down version of the
forest you're toting around, i'm sure.
