With your compiling error, it seems you didn't install a complete compiling environment. Please install compiletc.tcz and try again.
Kernel builds also need perl5, bash, and (if you use menuconfig) ncurses and ncurses-dev.
Thanks for the hint.
So far I installed:
then there were still "kernel headers" missing.
I found and installed
this fixed the error message, but I wonder if using the headers from/for 3.8.3 with 3.8.13 might cause other problems?
This brought me up to step 10. of http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:custom_kernel
I now have the new kernel, residing in arch/x86/boot/bzImage and the modules in lib/modules/kernel_version
Copying the kernel to /mnt/sda1/tce/boot and creating a boot-menu in extlinux.conf was easy enough - but how I am supposed to get my newly compiled modules into core.gz file? I understand that this is basically a filesystem packed into one file, but what is the most simple way to create it from my modules path without having to understand all the internals?
