Honestly not really sure I would still think you need to apply the appropriate patches to properly build it, but I have never tried to do it in the manner you are so I could totally be way off in my thinking on it. The OE system is not really that bad once you work through it some. Maybe there will be someone else who would have some ideas or do it the in the same manner but I dont think I have seen anyone mention doing it this way.

Hello vwyodapink,

Thank you for your quick reply. I'm not taking it from the main linux
source. I'm taking it from here,

http://www.sakoman.com/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi?p=linux-omap-2.6.git;a=summary

Gumstix has given that link and it has proposed to download the 2.6.35
branch. Though I downloaded that the problem existed.

By the way, I'm not using OpenEmbedded system as it is a little bit of
confusion to me. Instead I cross compiled the kernel using the codesourcery
(arm-none-linux-gnueabi) tool chain.

Any help?

Thnx a lot
