Highmem kernel build failed
 
I am a noob to Linux, but I've been able to follow the FC8 script at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/CustomKernel?highlight=%28kernel%29
*
For the kernel config, I used the kernel-2.6.23.9-i686.config
*
After modifying the highmem switch successfully using the script*(it looks good in .config),*I followed the script down to the rpmbuild command.*
*
I used the "Build all flavors" format, and got this response at the end.* I assume I'm missing something from my Dev environment, it's the default from the FC8 i386 DVD.
*
RPM Build Errors
bad exit status from /var/tmp/rmp-tmp.19630
*
I'm building linux on a asus P5K SE with 8Gig ram, and I'm going to use Blender, so I want to maximize my memory usage.
*
Any suggestions are much appreciated!

Highmem kernel build failed
 
*
The solution was simple in hindsight, but very odd.**
*
I had several problems, including very poor mouse behaviour as I was working in Gnome.* This morning, I decided to look over the KDE desktop configuration and see what it offered.* I immediately noticed that my mouse worked.* And then I checked, and my USB Cruzer mini-drive worked!!** So, I tried the kernel*compile again, and that worked too!!!
*
That says something about the Fedora 8 respin, that several components seem to work better after KDE comes up the first time.* My mouse and other*components now work under Gnome as well.
*
Of course, it could have been something else that I changed while working through all the other issues, but too many things changed.* I'll never know for sure.* Now, off to get VNC and Blender running.....
