hi ppl
i tried the new linux-2.6.0-test1 with my alpha and the
config says:

./scripts/kconfig/mconf arch/alpha/Kconfig
boolean symbol BINFMT_ZFLAT tested for 'm'? test forced to 'n'
#
# using defaults found in arch/alpha/defconfig
#
arch/alpha/defconfig:244: trying to assign nonexistent symbol SCSI_NCR53C8XX


hope that helps
walter

Perhaps you might want to first copy your dotconfig
to /path/to/linux-version/ then run make menuconfig,
then save it, then compile it.

This means that it is a new boolean symbol that your
config don't have.

I believe this is a symbol that exists in your config
but the kernel doesn't have this in the menu anymore.

Nope, there is a bug (a Kconfig rule tried to assign m to a boolean 
symbol). Matthew Wilcox already posted a fix.

It exists in _defconfig_.

defconfig in the kernel sources should be updated. Besides the warning 
this issue is harmless.

-test1 didn't compile for me (asm/local.h missing IIRC), but indeed,
-test2 works quite well on my NoName.

You are still hanging around with -test1? :) Give -test2 a try! It runs's great for me, but -test1 did also... But we talk about this already...

Best regards,
