Problem compiling Kernel 22.214.171.124
I'm a newbie concerning linux. Yesterday I tried to compile the kernel 126.96.36.199 with the help of the Tutorial "How to compile a kernel - The ubuntu way" (I actually use ubuntu, im at least sure of that ^_^).
Make menuconfig worked well, although I have no idea what I can do with the options in the menu. So I just went on. I typed in make (as root of course). First I thought the kernel gets compiled without any problems, but in the end I got this error report:
"drivers/ata/sata_mv.c: In Funktion »mv_slave_config«:
drivers/ata/sata_mv.c:772: Error: Differentiation of a cursor of uncomplete type ( I translated that from the german error message, I hope its the same in original english )
make: *** [drivers/ata/sata_mv.o] Error1
make: *** [drivers/ata] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2
make: Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52'
make: *** [debian/stamp-build-kernel] Error 2
I tried to ignore that to and wanted to create the kernels DEB packages for installing. In the end I got the exact same error report as above.
I appreciate any help.
Thanks a lot
