  1. To last Thread I posted, i redownloaded the kernel 2.4.18 and everything worked fine, until this error. My guess was the download must of stalled and i didnt get all the files.

    I'm useing openlinx 2.2. I looked on many differant forums and noticed this error is only with users useing openlinux. Some could fix it and some couldn't. All some users had to do is update there linux utils. Others did do and still had the error. I upgrade my utils and no luck. The error:

    (standard input) : assembler message

    (standard input) :8: Error no such 386 instruction: 'ldmxcsr'

    make [1]: *** [i387.c] Error 1

    make [1]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/kernel'

    make: *** [_dir_arch/i386/kernel] Error 2


    I'm useing Assembler version 2.11.2. Any suggestions? Would love the help!

    All your base are belong to Mictlantecuhtli!

    :) Heheh thanks Mictlantecuhtli! For the the link, it really helped me out. I had already updated to Binutils 2.11 but i put the files in /usr/bin/ and not in /usr/i386-linux/bin/ where the older AS was in and thats what gcc was useing. Until now that is.
