   Linux FAQ > 6. Porting, Compiling and Obtaining Programs
Question:  6.10. What To Do about Errors Trying to Compile the Kernel.
Answer:

See the previous question regarding the header files.

Remember that when you apply a patch to the kernel, you must use the "-p0" or "-p1" option: otherwise, the patch may be misapplied. See the patch manual page for details.

"ld: unrecognized option `-qmagic'" means that you should get a newer linker, from ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu/pub/linux/packages/GCC/, in the file binutils-2.8.1.0.1.bin.tar.gz.
