Re: Compiling kernel 2.4.20 on m68k
That almost worked. I did the make oldconfig and the rest of the
procedure as it was described I still get the missing reference to
is_dumpable as described in the quoted text below (in
access_process_vm). The floppy_hardint errors are corrected. I've
compared the .config file to the 2.4.20 config in my /boot, and the only
difference is CONFIG_NLS_DEFAULT has a value of "iso8859-1" vs "cp437"
for the one in my /boot. I'm not sure if that is significant.
Any suggestions on how to correct the is_dumpable missing symbol?
