Hi.

I tried to compile the kernel 2.4.3 but the process stops directly with the
following error:

saeanme@sae139c:/mipseb/usr/src/linux> make vmlinux
mips-linux-gcc -I /mipseb/usr/src/linux-2.4.3/include/asm/gcc -D__KERNEL__

saeanme@sae139c:/mipseb/usr/src/linux>

I downloaded the kernel from
ftp://ftp.mips.com/pub/linux/mips/kernel/2.4/src/
and the compiler is the current from ftp://oss.sgi.com/pub/linux/mips/
Is this a combination that cannot work? 
Any help would be appreciated.

best regards
