Assembly error, i don't know how to fix

Assembly error, i don't know how to fix

Assembly error, i don't know how to fix


i was programming a Kernel in C and running a little bit of Assembly code from there

Assembly code

CODE --> Assembly

.pushsection .text.start
jmp main

And heres the error: "<inline asm>:1:26: error: unexpected token in '.section' directive
.pushsection .text.start
<inline asm>:3:13: error: .popsection without corresponding .pushsection
^" Note: this is the error that i get from the c compiler.

As i said im running this code from a c file, heres the kernel.c if it helps

CODE --> c

/* This code will be placed at the beginning of the object by the linker script */
__asm__ (".pushsection .text.start \r\n"          "jmp main \r\n"          ".popsection \r\n"

int main(){
    /* Do Stuff Here*/

    return 0; /* return back to bootloader */

Ps: i will publish other code that is used if it helps
