How to Run "make xconfig" for Cross Platform?


Hello Everyone,

I’m trying to run the kernel configurator for my embedded ARM platform (PXA310) but so far I can only get it to run for my build platform, an i386/32 machine. I’ve tried running “make ARCH=arch/arm/mach-PXA3xx xconfig” in various combinations, but the maker always complains that it can’t find the target “arch/arm/mach-PXA3xx”. Doesn’t matter what order I put the arguments on the command line.

I also have CROSS-COMPILE defined in the environment correctly and can otherwise build for my embedded target. I just can’t run the config tool; I need to enable USB On the Go.

Would appreciate anyone’s insight.

Regards,

Peat

You just want "make ARCH=arm xconfig".

You will have to select your specific target from the xconfig menu system. Look in "System Type" and select "PXA2xx/PXA3xx-based (NEW)".

Hello David,

I really appreciate your reply - and it worked! Sorry to have bothered the list with a problem that has such a trivial solution; probably explains why a search didn't find anything useful. Linux Kernel in a Nutshell has a lot of good .config-file related information, but I didn't see anything about cross-platform.

Much obliged!

Peat

The solution only seems trivial when you know what is.

Remember, the number of embedded Linux developers is only a fraction of Linux users. So the answer to an embedded Linux question is much less likely to be found easily. Keep posting those questions. Someone else will benefit from the answers.
