      LDL Users:

      I am running RedHat 7.2, and wish to compile the generic kernel
      2.4.19-pre5

      Here is how I built my source code:

      a) I started with a tar file of the 2.4.17 kernel
      b) I patched it to have the 2.4.18 patches
      c) I then patched it to have EVMS 1.0.0 (its on sourceforge.net)
      d) I then patched it to be at the 2.4.19-pre5 level

      I did as follows:

      make mrproper
      make oldconfig
      make menuconfig
      make dep && make clean && make bzImage && make modules

      this is what I saw:


      gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.19-pre5/include -Wall -Wstrict-
      prototy
      pes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -
      fno-common
      -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686 -
      DKBUILD_BASENAME=main -c
      -o init/main.o init/main.c
      init/main.c: In function `root_dev_setup':
      init/main.c:292: sizeof applied to an incomplete type

      init/main.c:294: sizeof applied to an incomplete type
      make: *** [init/main.o] Error 1

      Any ideas?
