Help-load uclinux on FPGA

Dear friends, 

Recently I have a try for loading uclinux on FPGA. And I do it as Altera wiki-Install Nios II Linux. 

http://www.alterawiki.com/wiki/install_nios_ii_linux 

And when I have install the gcc-4.2 and then make commands as list: 

--tar xf <path_to>nios2-linux-20100621.tar  

--cd nios2-linux 

--cd uClinux-dist 

--make menuconfig 

I was stack in this step,the message is 

"make: *** No rule to make target `menuconfig'. Stop." 

Any one occured this problem before?Please give some advice. 

Thank you a lot!

Did you load .ptf file? You need to do something like 

 

make vendor_hwselect SYSPTF=<path>/my_sopc.ptf 

 

Try this even if the wiki says that this step must be done after. Often I had to type "make menuconfig" before and after "make vendor_hwselect"

are you sure that the hw_select shall be done? 

If you follow latest branches (see http://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=31829), the device tree fashion should be followed. hw_select is the way that was used in the old nioswiki times.

hw_select doesn't work any more 

 

you need to create header file with sopc2swheaders script and use it 

 

The wiki is not updated, some times it is a mix of old and new. 

 

your problem could be missing packages.
