Subject: make menuconfig and 2.4.22-pre8
Date: Sat, 26 Jul 2003 19:15:27 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I can't make menuconfig with a 2.4.22-pre8 Kernel.

This is what I did:

grisey:/usr/src# tar -xjf ~orm/install/linux-2.4.21.tar.bz2 
grisey:/usr/src# rm -f linux
grisey:/usr/src# ln -s linux-2.4.21 linux
grisey:/usr/src# patch -p0 < patch-2.4.22-pre8 2>&1 \
> patch-2.4.22-pre8.log
grisey:/usr/src# cd linux
grisey:/usr/src/linux# make menuconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts/lxdialog all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21/scripts/lxdialog'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21/scripts/lxdialog'
/bin/sh scripts/Menuconfig arch/i386/
Using defaults found in .config
Preparing scripts: functions, parsing


(about 3 minutes of awk and kswapd constantly swapping, making the
whole system extremely unresponsive)

and then:

Awk died with error code 143. Giving up.
make: *** [menuconfig] Fehler 1

With the vanilla kernel 2.4.21 there are no problems at all.

Anybody interested in the patch log?
