Sure, those guys who report `make` errors are just a bunch of ninnies.
It doesn't happen to me, therefore it doesn't happen to anyone, right?


# cd /usr/src/linux
# make > make.notes 2>make.errors &
# cat /usr/src/linux/make.errors

init/main.c: In function `init':
init/main.c:966: warning: implicit declaration of function `fade_bootlogo'
floppy.c: In function `interpret_errors':
floppy.c:1396: virtual memory exhausted
cpp: output pipe has been closed
make[3]: *** [floppy.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [first_rule] Error 2
make[1]: *** [sub_dirs] Error 2
make: *** [linuxsubdirs] Error 2

Version stuff:

GNU Make version 3.74
gcc version 2.7.2
Linux 2.0.0 #1 Sun Jun 9 15:30:43 EDT 1996 i586

This happened after I loaded the patch for 2.0.1. The machine has X and
some other things running. No other compiles or db ops, etc., though.

This is an FYI posting. Please take it as a friendly report, rather than
as flame-bait.
