Description Tim Baldwin 2003-09-27 10:55:38 UTC
I am running an Intel Celeron 1.7 Ghx, and installing gentoo from stage2-x86-20030910.tar.bz2, I am NOT using GRP, I am following all the instructions, using recommended settings and commands. when I get to the genkernel command, I get the following: Gentoo Linux genkernel, version 1.8  Copyright 2003 Gentoo Technologies inc, Bob Johnson, Daniel Robbins  Distributed under the GNU General Public License version 2  Settings  make options: -j2 (from Portage/make.conf)  source tree: /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-gentoo-r7  config type: gentoo (default)  config loc: /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-gentoo-r7/kernel-config  * Running "make mrproper"...

Then it goes back the the root prompt, I looked in the log and found the following error:  memory.c: In function `zap_page_range': memory.c:734: warning: implicit declaration of function `do_zap_page_range' memory.c: At top level: memory.c:743: warning: type mismatch with previous implicit declaration of `do_zap_page_range' memory.c:734: warning: previous implicit declaration of `do_zap_page_range' memory.c:743: warningL `do_zap_page_range' was previously implicitly declared to return `int'

please run memtest and watch out for bad memory 
Comment 2 John Davis (zhen) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-10-22 20:40:10 UTC
errors such as yours usually point to hardware problems, such as bad RAM
overheating. Make sure your case is properly ventilated, and run memtest
on your
RAM (memtest is available on the most recent LiveCDs)
