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

| 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.
