Description mark krischer 2002-07-14 21:19:02 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3; Linux)

Description of problem:
using kernel-source-2.4.18-5.58 and 5.64 from rawhide, make menuconfig and make xconfig do not allow you to save and exit.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. from the console type "make menuconfig"
2. or, in an xterm type "make xconfig"

Actual Results:  both menuconfig and xconfig work fine up until "save and exit".  with menuconfig, it never exits.  with xconfig i get the error: 'Error: can't read "CONSTANT_M": no such variable.'

Additional info:

stack trace from xconfig:

can't read "CONSTANT_M": no such variable
    while executing
    (procedure "writeconfig" line 310)
    invoked from within
"writeconfig .config include/linux/autoconf.h"
    invoked from within
".f0.right.save invoke"
    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
"uplevel #0 [list $w invoke]"
    (procedure "tkButtonUp" line 7)
    invoked from within
"tkButtonUp .f0.right.save
    (command bound to event)

I had the same problem, but it seems to be gone in kernel-source-2.4.18-7.93.
It won't compile though, but that's a different problem...
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-08-13 05:46:18 EDT
both should be fixed for the next build
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2002-08-15 23:46:27 EDT
Fix confirmed for kernel-source-2.4.18-11.
