My thoughts exactly. My RH7 box has decided to not compile any more for
whatever reason it decided was appropriate.
I upgraded to the latest gcc, its a bit better but not perfect. i.e.: Can
compile tar balls, and the kernel, BUT, upon reboot of said kernel, you get
"cannot get init level, try passing init level to lilo" So I "give lilo one"
and it doesn't work. I then do exactly the same operation - same kernel that
I downloaded! on a RH6 box and it works.
Then sometimes with RH7, I get "clock skew detected - your build may be
incomplete" Yet the build IS complete.
I installed rh7 yesterday in our wee lab, tried to compile 2.4.3 and got the
clock skew error. I then decided to update with me new rpm's, and it refused
to install any of them.
I even tried rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force --don't give me shite! *gcc*
And it returned - "Sorry this package cannot be installed" coz I'm a bad
I then immediately erased the system and stuck rh6.2 on, lo and behold,
Why go up when you know that down works perfectly well? ;-)
