How to run a kernel project config in ESP

I’m resurrecting a 2009 project to build additional units with some small upgrades. I seem to be having a lot of issues, but many are I believe related to the kernel config. I can’t runt the config from the IDE because it flashes some error too fast to see and then continues with the build. When I run “make -k gconfig” on the project I get the following;

HOSTLD scripts/kconfig/gconf
make: *** [gconfig] Error 2

I’m not sure but I’m thinking maybe a Glade update broke it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


I assume you are using Digi Embedded Linux and digi ESP.
you can try xconfig, qconfig or gconfig. make sure you have them installed. Then you can choose a tool in preferences dialog. DigiEL Configuration–> Graphic window system. uncheck autodetect and type in gconfig, xconfig or qconfig. you can probably even do menuconfig.
to get xconfig and gconfig:
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libglib2.0-dev libglade2-dev
sudo apt-get install libqt3-headers libqt3-mt-dev
