Could this be coming from source/Makefile:
# If .config is newer than include/config/auto.conf, someone tinkered
# with it and forgot to run make oldconfig.
# if auto.conf.cmd is missing then we are probably in a cleaned tree so
# we execute the config step to be sure to catch updated Kconfig files
include/config/auto.conf: $(KCONFIG_CONFIG) include/config/auto.conf.cmd
$(Q)$(MAKE) -f $(srctree)/Makefile silentoldconfig
$(error kernel configuration not valid - run 'make prepare' in
$(srctree) to update it)
It looks like this is where the message is coming from. For example,
spca5xx executes "make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
SUBDIRS=/root/spca5xx-20060501 CC=cc modules" to build the module. The
error is coming from the /usr/src/kernels/2.6.17-1.2328.fc6-x86_64/Makefile.
Where do I go from here to fix this? I am not a Makefile wizard :-(.
