SubjectBuilding the kernel with Cygwin
Hi.  I am newbie at GNU/linux.

I am trying to build a kernel (2.6.12) for a powerpc target using cygwin on
my i686 machine. I have
Windows 2000 as my operating system.

I have recent versions of cygwin (with GNU make 3.80), binutils for the
powerpc (gcc v 3.3.1, ld v 2.14)

I set
CROSS_COMPILE= powerpc-ibm-eabi-

and I add the cross compiler/build directory to my path.

After untaring the kernel, I issue the
make mrproper, which appears to work.

Then I issue
make menuconfig

and I get the following error, which I can't seem to get around:

HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
fixdep: no such file or directory
make[1]:*** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 2
make[1] Leaving directory /cygdrive/c/Linux_amcc/linux-2.6.12

Can you suggest what the problem might be? Should I be able to build the
with cygwin?
