Re: error make-ing kernel 1.2.13
Well, you are not alone. I also have this "problem", when I recompiled
this kernel the first time. What you could do is: not select PPP when you
are in make config. Then just follow the steps to finish the 'roll your own
kernel': make dep; make clean; make zImage. You should not have any
error this time. And if you really need PPP, you can use the PPP modules.
