Errors (override) with .config file


I've used the autokernconf tool to build a minimal, flexible kernel configuration file.

The minimal .config file is in the right directory.
Code:
67 root@ubuntux $ cd /usr/src/linux && ls .config
.config

Click here
if you would like to see what my .config file contains.

Unfortunately some errors come up while I'm trying to compile the new kernel with my own minimal .config file:

Code:
7 root@ubuntux $ make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers
exec debian/rules  DEBIAN_REVISION=2.6.30.3-custom-10.00.Custom  APPEND_TO_VERSION=-custom  INITRD=YES  kernel_image kernel_headers

As you can see it refuses to compile. What would be the best way to fix this issue? You can also see that it's about to write a new .config file from scratch at the end.

I only want to compile a new kernel with this minimal .config file, provided by autokernconf.

I've found the solution for this issue. These errors were caused by several duplicate lines in my .config file.

I've fixed it with:
Code:
sort .config | uniq -u >> .config2 && mv .config2 .config
