Problems in make menuconfig

Hi guys,

I am installed the linux kernel Now I want to install the kernel version 2.6.10. I have taken the kernel source version 2.6.10 and i am using ubuntu linux. Now when i am trying make menuconfig for 2.6.10 kernel version, I am getting following problem:

Setting up menu (2.1.40ubuntu1) ...

Processing triggers for menu ...
root@xw0-1:/usr/src/linux-2.6.10# make menuconfig
scripts/kconfig/mconf arch/i386/Kconfig
# using defaults found in .config
' invalid for LOG_BUF_SHIFT7
make[1]: *** [menuconfig] Error 1
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2

Can anybode tell what is problem and how do fix it in order to get .config for version 2.6.10 kernel version?

If you already have a .config in place, try running make oldconfig before menuconfig.
