Re: Build kernel: sigh... got an ugly error message just before make lifimage

I'm not a guru, but here are some hints...
I have gcc, kernel-package, kernel-source-2.4.18-hppa, libc6-dev,
tk8.3, libncurses5-dev and fakeroot installed in a C110, and I did
the classic minueto:
1. you should upgrade your kernel-source. kernel 2.4.18 is really old
now, and there are many problems on hppa with such an old kernel. Use
kernel-source-2.4.22-hppa, or get the freshest kernel source from
cvs.parisc-linux.org. (for more informations how to get cvs access see
2. palo (PArisc BOotloader) doesn't understand compressed kernel images.
Use 'make vmlinux' instead.
.....cd ../palo && make lifimage
/bin/sh cd: ../palo: No such file or directory
make: *** [palo] Error 1
3. In the makefile of older kernel for hppa palo is called to create a
lifimage, so one can boot over network, etc. For this you need the
sources of palo installed in the appropriate directory. But you can
just comment it out. (or update your kernel source...)
