    kernel Makefile error

    Keyboard.c (Minix 2.0.2) has some new escape sequences added and no errors are
    indicated with the c compiler (cc -c keyboard.c). However, the kernel's
    Makefile causes the error:

    make: Error code 256
    make: made 'keyboard.o' look old

    Anyone know where such errors are generated or how to circumvent them?

  2. Re: kernel Makefile error

    The source of the error mentioned below was in the keyboard.c file. The
    last line which contained the final brace was missing. Evidently, cc
    passed that to the shell but did not display an error message on the crt.
