Problem in make menuconfig for 2.6.8 kernel


Hi

I am trying to build a 2.6.8 linux kernel. I already have a .config file which I am using to load during make menuconfig.

So I type make menuconfig , when the window comes up, I select the option : Load from configuration file and select the configuration file I have.

However, make menuconfig errors out with the following message:

Invalid for LOG_BUF_SHIFT value 14.

Please note that make menuconfig runs fine on a 2nd linux box with the same .config file.

I thought this could be happening because the architectures of the two machines are different and hence some options are not allowed on a particular hardware setup. But then, it should be possible to build the kernel on a different machine from where you want to install it.

Any help or pointers here are more welcome.

Regards
Nitin

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
