Problem configuring monta vista linux kernel

Started by Hemal March 29, 2005
Hello friends,

  I am working on a project which has the short term goal of porting
Monta Vista Embedded Linux on a Intel PXA board (having ARM core). I
am facing the problem at the initial stage itself. I have installed
the Monta vista Linux on Windows platform.

   When i try to do make oldconfig (as per the kernel build guide) it
shows the warning

    /bin/sh: line 1: xscale_le-gcc: command not found.

 Although make oldconfig is successful. After that i try to do make
dep which gives me following error

720922@infva02366 /mykernel
$ make dep
/bin/sh: line 1: xscale_le-gcc: command not found
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-arm asm)

Any idea why this is happening?

what value have the variables ARCH and CROSS_COMPILE? Set them to "arm" and "<path_to_cross-gcc>/<prefix>-" (path & name of your cross-gcc without the "gcc"). I compile Kernel and userspace for PXA255 here with cross-compiler and -libs in my homedir, so my CROSS_COMPILE is set to "~/cross-pxa/bin/arm-linux-" greetings, micha
