Description p929001 1999-06-13 12:14:27 UTC
Using 'make menuconfig' generates a .config file that has a
wrong entry. If one deselects the MSDOS file system
(CONFIG_MSDOS_FS), the option for UMSDOS (CONFIG_UMSDOS_FS)
is not shown (which is of course OK). However, in the
.config generated, the entries are

# CONFIG_MSDOS_FS is not set
CONFIG_UMSDOS_FS=y

- which of course generates an error when compiling the
kernel.

Confirmed in test lab.  make xconfig does not have same problem.

Comment 2 Alan Cox 1999-06-16 16:38:59 UTC
We know. Its basically unfixable without a major rewrite of the config
handling. That is being worked on for 2.3/2.4
