i am almost fresh in embedded Linux, i want to test LDD3 examples, for that i install fedora 4 in my VM, i am unable to compile the kernel, i have set configs using make menuconfig, and then try to make compile but it gives me errors like

make[1]: *** No rule to make target `init/main.o', needed by `init/built-in.o'.  Stop.
make: *** [init] Error 2

could somebody inform me i could be missing, or where i can test LDD3 examples with zero defects
