I'm trying to compile 1.3.9 under Slackware 2.2.0, gcc 2.6.3 (a.out)
and libc 4.6.27. No IDE support selected, no elf, no modules, only scsi
disk, no cd-roms, tapes, etc. just some networking with 3c509B. I'm
having the following problem on make zImage:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-1.3.9/arch/i386/lib'

Specs: 486DX2/66, 16Mb, NCR53810, Hawk 1Gb.

Any pointers ?

Thank you,

Good code is hard to write, so it must be hard to understand.
