2.5.40: ALSA menuconfig bug traced

Post by Jos Hulzin » Mon, 07 Oct 2002 12:50:04



Hi,

The ALSA Menuconfig bug leads back to sound/Config.in

When you remove the entire if...fi block of CONFIG_SPARC64 or CONFIG_SPARC32
of the ALSA submenu, everything seems to work.

It seems to have nothing to do with the SPARC drivers though, for when I
duplicate the if ... fi block of CONFIG_ISA (so there are two ISA entries in
the submenu) after removing the SPARC(32, 64) block, the problems occur again.

Disabling CONFIG_ISA or CONFIG_PCI (the only options set "y" on my system)
didn't help anything.

I checked the Config.in file for odd characters with a binary editor, but
nothing was found.

Below you can find a "patch" that makes it work again. It is no solution
though...

I don't understand it... All I can think of is that the parser goes crazy...
