I've got the 2.4.18 kernel up and running, but I'd like to move to
something more recent. So I've been trying to compile the 2.6.8 kernel.
Following the readme I did the following:
make O=/kernel-build menuconfig
make O=/kernel-build modules_install install
It all runs smoothly until that last line. The modules get compiled just
fine, and then it bombs out saying:
make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.
make: *** [install] Error 2
The readme said that the compressed kernel gets created during the 'make'
command, and that the install may not work if you don't use lilo (this
uses silo, big surprise) but then when I look in the spot where it says
the image is supposed to be, it doesn't exist.
tib-blade:/usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8# ls -l arch/sparc64/boot/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1016 Aug 14 2004 Makefile
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3805 Aug 14 2004 piggyback.c
Help? (I did do the config and make as root, btw)
