Unhappy Problem with building HelloWorld Device Driver:Any help would be welcome


Hi.I am trying to start on linux device drivers.
I am following the instructions on

http://information.kateep.com/it/d-P...8lev1sec1.html

Here I was able to proceed till section 8.1.4.
After making the hello.c file,the make file and patching the Kconfig as mentioned,I tried to run the

$ make ARCH=ARM CROSS_COMPILE=xscale_be- gconfig

This gave error as:

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


I am not sure if my kernel is correctly compliled,but I was able to complie and build the kernel for arm before by cloning the kernel and building from the following link without any error.
