    kernel configuration


    Hi

    I tried to configure my kernel by running the following command

    "make xconfig"

    and then i got the following error.

    "Error in startup script: can't read "CONFIG_ETRAX_EXTERN_PB6CLK_FREQ": no such variable
    while executing
    "set CONFIG_ETRAX_EXTERN_PB6CLK_FREQ "
    (file "script/kconfig.tk" line 18326)
    make: *** [xconfig] Error 1".

    Anyone know what the problem is or what i can do?

    Thx

    Not quite sure about the error offhand, but you could use make menuconfig instead.

    maybe you haven't installed all things needed to configure kernel in graphic mode.put the installation cd in the cdrom drive and install all about kernel (in the appropriate section).that may works.....
