Hi all!

I must be doing something fundamentally wrong, but I don't see what...

I have obtained a toolchain from and
loop-mounted it as described at the bottom of the page. Then I
downloaded snapgear-3.x.x.tar.gz from and tried to follow the
instructions on

with snapgear-3.3.0.tar.gz I get:
[root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.3.0]# make xconfig
cannot access `config/mkconfig': No such file or directory
make: *** [] Error 1
[root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.3.0]#

with snapgear-3.4.0.tar.gz I get:
[root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.4.0]# make xconfig
make: *** No rule to make target `xconfig'.  Stop.
[root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.4.0]#

(this last one makes sense, because there is no Makefile in the

Am I missing something? Or are the instructions I am using

where has the top level Makefile gone ?

you should have the following files in the top level directory:

$ tar -ztvf snapgear-3.4.0.tar.gz

and the following directories:

I then run $ make xconfig
config/mkconfig >
make -C /mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts tkparse
make[1]: Entering directory
cc  -c -o tkparse.o tkparse.c
cc  -c -o tkcond.o tkcond.c
cc  -c -o tkgen.o tkgen.c
cc -o tkparse tkparse.o tkcond.o tkgen.o
make[1]: Leaving directory
ARCH=dummy /mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts/tkparse < > config.tmp
cat /mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts/ >>
cat config.tmp >>

etc, etc. and I get the xwindow config boxes appearing.

Any of the versions should work.  3.4.0 is the latest, however we don't have
formal approval to release it yet.

Check to make sure you have the uncompressed files as listed from a
tar -ztvf snapgear-3.4.0.tar.gz
