Problems with make menueconfig

Hello there,

i have problems with make menueconfig under
v23.05.0 or v23.05.2.
I tryed with 2 different Buildsystems, on both it's the same, so i think it's easy to reproduce.

i realy hope someone can help me.

My way:

git clone
git checkout v23.05.2

# Update the feeds
./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install -a

make menueconfig starts

Target System: MediaTek Ralink MIPS
Sub Target: MT76x8 based boards
Target Profile: Skylab SKW92A (i tryed other, it's the same)

save and exit, i got the error

*** End of the configuration.
*** Execute 'make' to start the build or try 'make help'.

make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/osboxes/openwrt2023/Open_Error/openwrt'
time: target/linux/prereq#0.55#0.00#0.57
 make[1] menueconfig
make -r menueconfig: build failed. Please re-run make with -j1 V=s or V=sc for a higher verbosity level to see what's going on
/home/osboxes/openwrt2023/Open_Error/openwrt/include/ recipe for target 'menueconfig' failed
make: *** [menueconfig] Error 1

now it's not possible to make menueconfig again.

Starting with -j1 V=s
brings no new information:

make menueconfig -j1 V=s
make[2]: Entering directory '/home/osboxes/openwrt2023/Open_Error/openwrt/scripts/config'
make[2]: 'conf' is up to date.
make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/osboxes/openwrt2023/Open_Error/openwrt/scripts/config'
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/osboxes/openwrt2023/Open_Error/openwrt'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'menueconfig'.  Stop.

Thank you for help.

menuconfig, without the e between menu and config?

box of shame.
I crown myself an idiot. :zipper_mouth_face:

Thank you

Can't you use better than -j1? Unless you use a vintage computer from the 2000s, you have many cores available. Compiling will be much faster.

Yes, I just used that to create the error message. Which of course doesn't help against spelling errors.

Works great now :hugs:
