Re: 2.4.29 module build fails - (HIMEM) FIXED
Duh.. it's probably been a half dozen kernel versions since i bothered to do a 'make mrproper' (Turns out the README was relevant after all)
Fix was as simple as this:
(without himem support) and save config as NO_HIMEM
cp NO_HIMEM .config
make xconfig (and enable himem stuff)
make dep clean bzImage modules && make modules_install
Probably would have worked just as well if i'd just enabled himem stuff, saved the config as a file.. done mrproper, restored the .config and then make oldconfig.
Anyways, thanks for the reads. Hope this helps somebody.
