Re: Kernel Compilation Issues

I'm attempting to re-build the kernel with some options I want
(netfilter/iptables). I did "make mrproper" and then reloaded my configs from a
file saved earlier, so the source directory should be clean.
The compilation runs for some time and then bombs. I get 7 undefined reference
errors (all ACPI related) similar to

arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text.init+0x5328): In function `acpi_parse_lapic':
: undefined reference to `acpi_table_print_madt_entry'

and then

make[1]: *** [kallsyms] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 2

None of the ACPI options are enabled in my kernel config. I even manually edited
a line in .config because I couldn't find a way to turn it off using the config


I'm guessing that might actually break something important, but I gave it a shot.

Any answers/suggestions?

Kernel build sequence:

1. "cd /usr/src/linux"

2. "make mrproper"

3. Copy over your config to "/usr/src/linux/.config"

	4a. If you wish to make more tweaks,
		"make xconfig" or
		"make menuconfig"

	4b. If you AREN'T making any other tweaks:
		"make oldconfig" <<<--- CRITICAL!

5. "make dep" <<<--- ALSO CRITICAL!

6. "make bzImage"

7. "make modules"

	8.  "make install modules_install"
