I want to automate a Linux build but eventually get to a point where I need to run what seems to be a very manual step:
make menuconfig. This seems to synchronize configs between the OS and kernel configs?
cp git-tracked-config .config
make menuconfig # <- how to automate/script this?
Basically, how can I remove the call to
make menuconfig for a build script?
As an aside, this is in reaction to a build error that seems to happen when I run without ever calling make menuconfig:
make: *** No rule to make target `include/config/auto.conf', needed by `include/config/kernel.release'. Stop.
Which seems to be there is a missing rule in a makefile perhaps because the makefile itself does NOT exist or the makefile has not been generated/morphed to contain that rule but that is a separate question.
There could be a smarter way to approach this alltogether. Are there other configs that I'm not tracking but should (e.g. oldconfig)?
