I'm guessing it's the whole config.h problem that ubuntu useres have.......
this is from the wiki:

If you get an error: Compilation aborted. Please read the FAQ for linux-libc-headers package. then edit /usr/include/linux/config.h and delete both lines.

At the end of buildroot? Or the end of make menuconfig?

Also, ERROR 2 in and of itself, is pretty much useless. Can you include the
exact command executed (and frmo which directory) and the last 40 lines of
output displayed on your console?

If you have network access (direct, Wifi, or via usbnet), then you can use
wget to pull them from an ftp/http server, or scp (dropbear, running on the
gumstix is an ssh server).

If you only have serial access, then you can use rz to do a serial style
transfer with Z-Modem.
