Linux Kernel 2.4.16 (x86) with GCC 3.1 causes kernel panic
Fri May 24 17:45:00 GMT 2002
has someone successfully built Linux Kernel 2.4.16 (i386) with GCC 3.1 ?
It doesn't work for me, short after booting I get a kernel panic, I _guess_
it might have to do with the Promise 20268 driver, I use a ATA drive on a
Promise UMDA 100 controller.
The kernel panics right before harddrive detection, but it happens so fast,
so it's just a guess that it has to do with the Promise driver.
binutils 18.104.22.168.7 20020423
-march=athlon was used
AMD Duron (with old Spitfire core, which basically is an Athlon with just 64k
L2 so -march=athlon should work fine, but -march=i686 also causes the panic
with GCC 3.1)
GCC 3.1 was installed correctly, I have tested some smaller apps like GnuPG
1.0.7 without any problems.
By the way, the Kernel 2.4.16 itself and the modules were compiled without
any problems by GCC 3.1 it's just the kernel panic that appears reproducable
Built with GCC 2.95.3 everything is fine.
Are newer Kernels more recommended for use with GCC 3.1 than 2.4.16 ?
