ok, so i need help compiling the 2.4.31 kernel on xubuntu 9.04.

i am trying to compile a minilinux kernel for the xbox that is based off of a vanilla 2.4.31 kernel. i can successfully "make oldconfig" and "make dep" without error, but when i run "make bzImage" i get the following error:

root@spencer-desktop:/usr/src/linux-2.4.31# make bzImage

i looked up that error, and i found 1 post on the linux forums, but the advice was that it might be a bad download. also, its not a problem caused by xbox specific patches, because i get the same error without patching the source. any ideas?
