Just a small tips I use on my i386 linux-box: I launch the make in one line
and tacke a log which I can so analyze later like:

make dep clean bzImage modules modules_install 2>&1 | tee

(presently replace bzImage by vmlinux for parisc on a parisc-box seems to

May be, it should be helpfull :))


ps: but with parisc-box I met a problem which I do not met with the
xcompiler on i386 linux-box:

dmfe.c: In function `dmfe_timer':
dmfe.c:1193: Unable to find a register to spill in class `FP_REGS'.
dmfe.c:1193: This is the insn:
(insn 255 254 894 (set (reg:DF 22 %r22 [157])
        (float:DF (reg:DI 4 %r4 [158]))) 149 {floatdidf2} (insn_list 254
    (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg:DI 4 %r4 [158])
        (expr_list:REG_EQUAL (unsigned_float:DF (reg:SI 156))
dmfe.c:1193: confused by earlier errors, bailing out
make[2]: *** [dmfe.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory
make[1]: *** [_modsubdir_net] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.6-20010717/drivers'
make: *** [_mod_drivers] Error 2

any idea?

If I understand correctly, you are rebuilding the kernel, and want
kernel modules installed correctly under /lib/modules?

cd /usr/src/linux   (or wherever your source tree is)
# save your .config file, if you want it
make distclean
cp <config file> .config
make oldconfig
make dep
make modules
make modules_install
cp vmlinux /boot/vmlinux   (or whereever you want it to go)
