Default SuSe kernel compile error !!

Please help, I am a newbie at Linux, and i have really tried looking into this for 3 days

I am using SuSe10.0 on a host. The ony I can have access to it is remotely, using putty.

I have patched the "2.6.21-rc6" on top of a vanilla 2.6.20 kernel from

I have followed your guide on how to compile a kernel on Suse. I have now faced with 2 problems with "make rpm"

1. I can't not find the ".ksyms" file. Those don't have the ".ksyms" part, and i don't have a "find-supplements" either. I skipped this and it seems fine

2. When I do "make rpm", I encounter the following error

Building target platforms: i386
Building for target i386
error: Failed to rename /usr/src/packages/SPECS/rpm-spec.MQZpNE to /usr/src/packages/SPECS/rpm-spec.MQZpNE: No such file or directory: No such file or directory
I have no idea how to fix this, since your guide is the most helful to date that I can find, and very specific to the system I am using as well.

PLease can you give me some pointer on how to overcome this. Your help is very much appreciated.

Thank you
