yes and no: I do:
make oldconfig
make dep bzImage modules

Isn't that supposed to be enough?
If someone has an explanation, please CC to me: I am not on lk.
What I don't understand is that, effectively, running make bzImage
modules again works...

Well, more or less: the fbcon-cfg8.c is still broken as is 2.5.11, but apply also
cleanly and my kernel and modules are now compiled ;-))

I just got while sudo make modules_install:
cd /lib/modules/2.5.12; \
mkdir -p pcmcia; \
find kernel -path '*/pcmcia/*' -name '*.o' | xargs -i -r ln -sf ../{} pcmcia
if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F 2.5.12; fi
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.5.12/kernel/fs/jfs/jfs.o
depmod: block_flushpage
make: *** [_modinst_post] Error 1

But I don't need jfs: I just wanted to try it...

Google is very good for those problems...

It's time to reboot :-))

Thanks you very much,
