You can't use the mainstream kernel sources to compile an m68k Linux.
You will need to apply the m68k patches to the source before you can
compile a good m68k based kernel. You could pull 2.2.18 from the the
Linux-Mac68k site on SourceForge. The following are instructions on how
to get the 2.2.18 source:
CVS is now hosted at SourceForge, so the procedures for checking out
sources have changed. Use these commands to check out the sources:
$ cvs login
(The password is blank. Just hit enter.)
$ cvs co -r linux-2_2 linux-mac68k
$ cd linux-mac68k
If you want the unstable 2.4 branch instead, omit the "-r linux-2_2" in
the third command.
This source had been used by a few Amiga owners to compile kernels for
the Amiga with good results before the 2.2.18 merge. I have not had any
reports of success or failure with the 2.2.18 source.
