    Error in building kernel


    Hi,

    I am trying to build kernel for i.MX board (I have to port gxlinux onto the board).

    But I am having problems while building .

    when i try:

    Code:
    :~/gxlinux/linux$ make ARM=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux- zImage
    I get the following error:

    Code:
    scripts/kconfig/conf -s arch/i386/Kconfig
    file drivers/net/Kconfig already scanned?
    make[2]: *** [silentoldconfig] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [silentoldconfig] Error 2
    make: *** [include/linux/autoconf.h] Error 2
    Being a newbie to kernel compiling, I have no clue what to do next.
    Please help me with this.

    It's an embedded Linux development platform, but that's about all I know about it.

    Well I know embedded means that it's basically embedded onto a chip and can be used on very small devices like cell phones, GPS devices and a lot more.
    A development platform is probably just software that people use to program for different platforms. (I'm guessing here)
