Re: How to get a working kernel? (2.4)

If you uninstall gcc-3.3, the kernel compile will automatically use sparc64-linux-gcc.

(as long as you set the ARCH properly to sun4u, for instance).

What should be linked to gcc?
I've got:
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       144316 Apr 13  2002 /usr/bin/gcc-2.95
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        80500 Apr 10  2002 /usr/bin/gcc-3.0
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        74944 Jan  4  2001

If I link the sparc64... to gcc, I can't compile anything at all,
instant  failure, even with make xconfig. (or make dep)

Anyone happen to have a .config file that compiles 2.4.20 or 2.5.70
clean?  (and has SMP enabled?)

/usr/bin/sparc64-linux-gcc is linked to

Edit arch/sparc64/Makefile in the kernel and comment out CC= and add a
line like:


Debian     - http://www.debian.org/
Linux 1394 - http://www.linux1394.org/
Subversion - http://subversion.tigris.org/
Deqo       - http://www.deqo.com/
