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


I have tried to run mrproper from /usr/src/ as well as /usr/src/linux and even /usr/src/linux-headers-XXXX-386. nothing works. how in the world do i get this working? here is the result:

/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.12-10$ sudo make mrproper
/bin/sh: /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.12-10/scripts/gcc-version.sh: No such file or directorymake[1]: scripts/Makefile.clean: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `scripts/Makefile.clean'. Stop.
make: *** [archclean] Error 2

It sounds like you have the headers package installed but not the sources package. Once that's installed the make mrproper target should work (I'm assuming that the Ubuntu kernel package doesn't do anything unusual to the source tree).

mrproper is used to "clean" the kernel-source tree from previously compiled files, so you can start fresh - even without a old .config.
However - you need the kernel-source installed for this and run this command from /usr/src/linux (or /usr/src/linux_version_)
Is there anything inside /usr/src/linux ?

Sounds like you need to install the kernel source for your distribution. As one member above said, that command was typically run in /usr/src/linux where linux is a symbolic link to the actual directory containing the kernel source code. This may differ from distro to distro but usually within /usr/src.

This is something you'll have to figure out specifically for your version.

Thank you!
I have passed this time.The reason that made the error last time was that i didn't tar the kernel source file.I entered the following commands and passed successfully:

tar -xjf linux-2.6.27.4.tar.bz2
cd linux2.6.27.4
make mrproper
