I have a problem when executing make menuconfig :


In the first stage, I select [*] Customize Application/Library Settings


Then I get this error message :




FVA@tlv-thc-lx-01:~/XT100G2/build/uClinux-dist> make menuconfig

I didn't do that part of the configuration for a long time. It worked before; but obviously now there's a problem that prevents me to enter the application/library configuration part. (as I didn't use that configuration part for a long time, it's almost impossible to know what has changed in that period of time...).


Anyone can point me in the good direction ? Bad .config file ?

Try if it works fine with a clean version? I mean a clean code package

Seems to work fine with an earlier release. Have to find out now why it is not working anymore with the recent release. I'm copying the latest version piece by piece over the working version to find out where the problem occurs.


Anyone can give me a clue based on the error output ?


Googling around, I found similar problems that point to duplicate lines in Kconfig or .config files. Possible ?

I think I found the problem.... stupid problem.... I feel ashamed not have seen this earlier...

Obviously, a number of folders from the root have been accidentally copied to the vendors folder (/bin, /lib, /user,...). After removing these folders from /vendors, make menuconfig  seems to work normal again...

yes, the first thing the build system does is search for Kconfig files in vendors/ and automatically include them
