Using current kernel source 2002-04-10 from cvs.
While trying to build with config GENERIC_LAPTOP can't complete due to the following:
arch -I../../../.. -nostdinc -DLKM -DMAXUSERS=32 -D_KERNEL -D_KERNEL_OPT -c ../../../../arch/i386/i386/apmcall.s
/tmp/ccAWaAuu.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/ccAWaAuu.s:618: Error: operands given don't match any known 386 instruction
*** Error code 1
Commenting out apm in the config allows me to complete the build also I don't have new.gas but I did
comment out I686_CPU incase it was a new instruction.
After building the above kernel (without apm of course) mozilla 0.9 functionality disturbed.
Any request with the browser results in the following error being returned by mozilla:
"The connection was refused when attempting to contact www.xyz.com".
Though all other network applications seem to function without any problems.
I'm new to tracking -current so excuse me if these are silly mistakes due to my own error
but please try to guide me in the right direction either way.
