Re: Debian 0.93 vs kernel 1.3.59

When you do `make config' you are asked whether have an ELF or a.out
compiler - it looks from the line below as if you've answered that
you've got an ELF compiler.

What is CONFIG_KERNEL_ELF set to in /usr/src/linux/.config?

|Compile kernel as ELF - if your GCC is ELF-GCC
|  The gcc version 2.7.0 and newer produces the new ELF binary format
|  as default. If you have such a compiler (try "gcc -v"), say Y
|  here, otherwise N.
|  It is possible, albeit almost pointless, to compile the kernel in
|  a.out format even if your compiler produces ELF as default. For
|  that, you would have to say N here and change the variables LD and
|  CC in the toplevel Makefile. Similarly, if your compiler produces
|  a.out by default but is able to produce ELF, you can compile the
|  kernel in ELF by saying Y here and editing the variables CC
|  and LD in the toplevel Makefile.
