Issue with make -j4 when building in separate tree.

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


There seems to be a dependency problem when running
make with multiple jobs (-j4).

I am compiling in a separate tree.  I created
the tree with the command:

[greear@xeon-dt]$ make O=~/kernel/2.6/linux-2.6.16.k6/ xconfig

Then tried to build with this command.

[greear@xeon-dt linux-2.6.16.k6]$ make -j4 bzImage modules
make -C /home/greear/git/ O=/home/greear/kernel/2.6/linux-2.6.16.k6 bzImage
make -C /home/greear/git/ O=/home/greear/kernel/2.6/linux-2.6.16.k6 modules
  GEN    /home/greear/kernel/2.6/linux-2.6.16.k6/Makefile
  GEN    /home/greear/kernel/2.6/linux-2.6.16.k6/Makefile
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  CHK     include/linux/version.h

This error has existed at least since 2.6.13.
