Hi Keith,

Thanks a lot.

Now its showing some ray of hope....

drivers/char/nvram.c | /sbin/genksyms -k 2.5.47 > include/linux/modules/drivers/char/nvram.ver.tmp
drivers/char/nvram.c:45: warning: `PC' redefined
include/asm/ptrace.h:18: warning: this is the location of the previous definition drivers/char/nvram.c:61: #error Cannot build nvram driver for this machine configuration.
make[3]: *** [include/linux/modules/drivers/char/nvram.ver] Error 1
make[2]: *** [drivers/char] Error 2
make[1]: *** [_modver_drivers] Error 2
make: *** [.hdepend] Error 2

Is this (NVRAM) not a mandatory device? If so is it possible to remove it using the menuconfig? I chose Atlas 4Kc. Let me know where it is located or the issue with this issue.

Thanks again,

Because you mentioned Redhat 9, I have to assume that you are cross
compiling from i386 to mips, is that correct?  If so, you need make
ARCH=mips and you have to specify the cross compile tools as well,
something like this :-

  make ARCH=mips CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/bin/mips-linux- ...

If you are doing a native mips compile then the problem is that your
version of gcc does not like one or more of the command options, the
unknown option is being treated as a filename.
