I've been trying to identify a kernel change that has killed hibernate on my Dell Inspiron 600m and I've made some good progress by checking out the kernel source from the git repository and rolling a kernel that does not have this bug (version 2.6.28-18.60). I'm now trying to compile the next kernel in the change log (version 2.6.28-19.61) but the build is failing with the error message:
INSTALL fs/ntfs/ntfs.ko strip:/home/spinlock/kernel/9.04/source/debian/linux-image-2.6.28-19-core3//lib/modules/2.6.28-19-core3/kernel/fs/ntfs/ntfs.ko: File format not recognized make: *** [fs/ntfs/ntfs.ko] Error 1 make: *** [_modinst_] Error 2 make: *** [sub-make] Error 2 make: *** [install-core3] Error 2 make: *** [binary-core3] Error 2
I've been using the instructions for rolling a kernel here and I can compile the first version but I get a failure when I try to switch to the next branch and compile from there. Is there a "make dep" or a "make clean" that I might be missing in the build process?
