While trying to resurrect an old embedded Linux project I've run into some problems. I have installed a clean Linux Mint 14 VM, installed the required compilers & tools (a long list) and copied the usual build files I need from a .iso file used to compile an ARM cross-compiler toolchain.
The next step is the configuration, which immediately fails:
linuxmint ~/ICnova $ make menuconfig
/bin/bash: package/config/mconf: No such file or directory
The package/config/mconf file is present, the libncurses5-dev is installed, and indeed
seems to work fine so it seems to be something odd in the makefiles associated with menuconfig - something I know nothing about.
This has worked fine on my old SuSE and Ubuntu setups, I've Googled this as much as I can now I'm stumped. Any ideas how to debug this one?
