It does! I've just compiled a kernel based on GENERIC with these
changes and it compiles without problem:
One of the error messages you saw said:
error: syntax error before "mod"
Perhaps that file got corrupted somehow. You could delete the
/usr/src/sys directory (after backing up your config file) and
re-install the sys source from CD. You could compare it with
its CVS Log entries if you can find them, it has moved but there
are traces at:
Or you could simply manage without splash screens for now by
commenting out the device splash line in your kernel config.
