Hi, all.

Just got my shiny "new" Ultra 2 and am compiling the kernel.

I got an error message something like:
Code:

kernel/bound.c:1:error
-m64 not supported
-mlong-double-64 not allowed with -m64
-mcmodel=is not supported on 32bit systems


Shame for me to get stuck now. Does anyone know what I need to change?

Cheers,

Chris.

This thread discusses the same issue and also has a solution.

Thanks.

I'm just doing

Code:
make CROSS_COMPILE=sparc64-unknown-linux-gnu- && make CROSS_COMPILE=sparc64-unknown-linux-gnu- image modules_install


At the moment, it seems to be looking good. Do the Handbook maintainers need to be made aware of this?

Thanks,

Chris.

Cheers, Blu3bird. I couldn't open the URL because of a certificate problem. As long as it's in-hand, i'm happy.

Thanks,

Chris.
