how to revert back to default settings of make menuconfig

Hi there,
please ignore if this questionis in wrong section..(i couldn't find any section for LINUX KERNEL )

I am using ridgerun sdk...I made some settings changes in the config file through the command "make menuconfig"
Now, when i'm compiling up the kernel it gives me some error...So, i want to revert back to the default configuration..(but i dont remember now, what settings i've changed).
Is there any command to go to default kernel config?

"make mrproper" is not supported by Ridgerun sdk.
Please suggest some solution for this.

Your .config is just a text file - once saved, it's saved.

Backup. First.
Depending on ARCH a "make defconfig" might work. Try "make help" for info.


kernel config, linux, linux command
