UPDATE for makedevenv-6 (debian squeeze)
« on: November 01, 2011, 12:29:10 »
Trying to solve some problems in the dongle software, I stumbled upon the problem that makedevenv-6 does not work on debian squeeze. When compiling the kernel this error occurs:
Code: [Select]
scripts/Configure: line 549: .: .config: file not found
scripts/Configure: line 551: .: .config-is-not.14056: file not found

Googling revealed other people have same problem, but no solution found. The problem seems to be that the bash dot/source command fails to look in the current directory in bash4, which it did correctly in bash3.

I solved this by creating a patch; to have this patch activated at the right time, I had to adapt the "patch" script; it is now adapted in such a way that future patches can be added without changing the script.

Perhaps Chris or Marten could add the patch and the changed patch script to kernel-1.tar.gz, in that case the makedevenv-7 script can be replaced by the makedevenv-6 script, since no other changes were made.

dingo35,

Thanks for your work. As you probably saw I put it on the site as makedevenv-7 and announced it in the announcements section, and then forgot to post here :)
