Problem in make menuconfig for 2.6.8 kernel
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.
