Description Peter van Egdom 2002-08-25 16:44:10 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020814

Description of problem:
I decided to do a kernel compile on a freshly installed
Red Hat Linux 'null' machine.

I did a "make clean" && "make mrproper" before doing "make xconfig".

But, when I typed in "make xconfig", I got the message :

"make: wish: Commando niet gevonden"
"make: *** [xconfig] Fout 127"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Linux 'null'

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "su -"
2. "cd /usr/src/linux-2.4"
3. "make clean"
4. "make mrproper"
5. "make xconfig"

Actual Results:  "make: wish: Commando niet gevonden"
"make: *** [xconfig] Fout 127"

Expected Results:  I expected the graphical kernel configuration fronted
normally presented by "make xconfig".

Additional info:

[root@localhost linux-2.4]# make xconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts kconfig.tk
make[1]: Binnengaan van map `/usr/src/linux-2.4.18-11/scripts'
cat header.tk >> ./kconfig.tk
./tkparse < ../arch/i386/config.in >> kconfig.tk
KERNTYPE=`sed -n 's_^/\* Kernel type \(.*\) \*/_\1_p' /boot/kernel.h 2>/dev/null`; \
if [ -f configs/*-ERNTYPE.config ]; then \
        conf=`echo configs/*-ERNELTYPE.config`; \
        echo "set defaults \"\"" >> kconfig.tk; \
else \
        echo "set defaults \"arch/i386/defconfig\"" >> kconfig.tk; \
echo "set ARCH \"i386\"" >> kconfig.tk
cat tail.tk >> kconfig.tk
chmod 755 kconfig.tk

ps. I have succesfully compiled Linux kernels in the past, from
Red Hat 6.x to 7.3, always with "Kernel Development" and some
extra packages. On this particular 'null' install, I selected
similar packages as before.

Closing bug.

Compiler works as expected in Red Hat Linux 8.0.
