My name is Shane Drinkwater. I am new to the coda file system and have been working on a test box. When I tried to compile the Linux module portion of the coda system I get the following error.
[root_at_virtualtest linux-coda-6.8linux2.6]# make

Is there a way around this issue?? I would like to stick with the "red hat" kernel instead of rolling my own.
                        Thank you
