bzImage cannot create

Hi!
I need recompile the kernel from 2.4.7-9 to 2.4.18 in a HP Workstation I2000 with Red Hat 7.1, and the command "make bzImage" display "make: *** No rule to make target bzImage stop"

Any idea?

Re: bzImage cannot create

What directory are you in when you type this?

Hi Craig
I am in the correct directory to compile the kernel (/usr/src/linux)
Thanks for your attention...

Hi!

What kernel packages have you installed? Only kernel and kernel -headers? You need the kernel-source package also ... Or do you want to use the 'Linus'-kernel from www.kernel.org? If so are you in the correct directory where you have untar'ed the kernel sources?

Have fun,

Jochen
Well, yeah ... I suppose there's no point in getting greedy, is there?

Re: bzImage cannot create

Hi

"make: *** No rule to make target bzImage stop" message shows that
your Makefile doesn't have make "bzImage" entry.

But this file should be packed in side of the kernel soruce pkg.

Did you do,
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make mrproper
# make xconfig (menuconfig or config)
# make dep
# make clean
then
# make bzImage

or just #make bzImage ?

Good luck

Re: bzImage cannot create

Hello Masanari!
Yes I do this steps
cd /usr/src/linux
Make mrporper
make xconfig
make dep
make clean


And, according to red hat support, because this case is for a itanim server

make compressed
strip compressed ...
gzip compressed ...

But no good results
I'll keep trying... thanks for your help..
