Re: Still having a problem building elks kernel



For what it is worth, it builds OK under Gentoo Linux. The only problem is that the output is somewhat broken :-(

If anybody has seen this bug or can send me an 80(1)86 build floppy image using BIOS calls I would very much appreciate it.

I just created a new VM and installed Arch Linux last night.  I'll try
installing the bcc x86 packages this evening and cross my fingers that
this distro does the trick.  I wonder what the difference is?

Here's the last little bit from Make on Arch which seems to work (I
don't have the means to actually test it though)

Obviously the ld86 is failing in Debian/Ubuntu, but like I said, I
haven't looked into why yet other then the fact that it looks like "-t
-M -o arch/i86/boot/system \" isn't in the Debian/Ubuntu's ld86's
command for some reason...
