    Hi.I am trying to start on linux device drivers.
    I am following the instructions on

    Section 8.1.* Device Driver Concepts

    Here I was able to proceed till patching the Kconfig as mentioned.Inorder to configure,I tried to run the

    $ make ARCH=ARM CROSS_COMPILE=xscale_be- gconfig

    This gave error as:

    make: *** No rule to make target `gconfig'. Stop.


    EarlierI was able to complie and build the kernel for arm before by cloning the kernel and building from the following link without any error.

    https://omapzoom.org/gf/project/omap...ux+OMAP+Kernel

    I havent configured the kernel except for the ARM as mentioned in the link above.I am not sure if that is wat is giving the problem.
