The ^L is used as a page seperator in GNU source files, so the file is
seperated into logical chunks.

I am not sure why you posted the Makefiles.  They seem to come from the
Hurd.  The kernel is GNU Mach, the Hurd is the Hurd.  So I suspect you were
trying to compile the Hurd (not the kernel).  I suspect you were doing


This doesn't seem to work then.  We always build in a sub dir like this:

mkdir build
cd build

This has the advantage of seperating the object files from the source files.
A rm -fR build can be used to purge it.

As we never build directly in the source dir, there mightbe bugs preventing
it.  You seem to have encountered such a bug.  It's a low priority to fix
but thanks for letting us now that there are problems.

Yes, there seems to be a problem.  I will try to look into it.

What exactly are you doing?  After "cat /dev/klog > /tmp/boot.log", does
it return to the prompt, or sit there? If the latter, what do you press to
interrupt it.

Note that you can only read it out once.  So if you first do "cat
/dev/klog", and then a redirection or repeat the command, it will always
print nothing.
