Hello,

I have recently installed openSUSE 10.3. I am in the process of
recompiling the kernel, and I have a major issue.

During the

make modules_install

portion of the process, I get an error. Attemping to boot using the
new kernel after this error fails. Following is the output from the
latter portion of the 'make modules_install' process.

I have recompiled kernels dozens of times before, and I have no idea
what's going on here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
