Now I got passed the config issue.

I used the following command:

$ make ARCH=mips menuconfig

& changed the Machine option to Atlas 4Kc & saved it
$ make dep
Then when I tried make, I got the following error:

[root@localhost linux-2.4.20-6]# make
scripts/split-include include/linux/autoconf.h include/config
make -r -f tmp_include_depends all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-6'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-6/include/asm/math_emu.h', needed by `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-6/arch/i386/math-emu/fpu_emu.h'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-6'
make: *** [tmp_include_depends] Error 2

I guess it's something to do with the FPU option ( not sure).. Please help me with this. I wonder why its still refering to files from arch/i386. The autoconfig.h seems to be fine. Ony the MIPS processor options are enabled.

Did you have a look at the ELDK? See

I bet you missed to set "ARCH := mips" in the TLD Makefile;
alternatively try "make ARCH=mips xconfig"
