Hi,

I am working on CentOS 6.5 which has 2.6.32-431 kernel.

I have a problem with my driver and I need to enable Kernel-Memory
leak in the kernel for which I will have to recompile the kernel.

I get the kernel source tree from the the source rpm for my running
kernel from below link-

http://vault.centos.org/6.5/updates/Source/SPackages/kernel-2.6.32-431.11.2.el6.src.rpm

 and I try to build the kernel according to the below link on CentOS Wiki -

http://www.centos.org/docs/rhel-sag-en-3/s1-custom-kernel-modularized.html

according to which it tells me , after make menuconfig( and
customizing my configuration), I need to follow the following steps-

1.  make bzImage
2.  make modules
3.  make modules_install
4.  make install


but I get errors in the first step only-(make bzImage)

Kindly suggest me as to what I am doing wrong.


Regards,
Saket SInha
