    what you said is correct , there is no destination folder in cp command
    that is automatically execuiting when I give a make command , It takes more time and halts when this error comes,

    I edited the thread because I thought it is configure.in so here config.in no i don't think you need to run ./configure , so we will focus on cp missing operand

    Dear sir,
    after accessing buildroot folder at first I give a command
    make menuconfig
    after this buildroot configuration menu occors
    Target architecture(arm ) --->
    Target architecture variant (arm920t)--->
    Target ABI (0ABI)--->
    and rest of the menu I used default configurations except
    Kernal---> (linux (same version as linux headers))

    After this I will give make command

    aha I see, have you seen the README file or the release notes???
    the issue is that the second portion/operand of the cp is missing,
