    I have downloaded the Linux Kernel Source and trying to build Linux kernel for android emulator. Now I get error while compiling the Linux Kernel Source, here I use cross-compiling tool-chain that is downloaded with android source.
    When I try this:
    ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=~/mydroid/prebuilt/linux-x86/toolchain/arm-eabi-4.4.0/bin/arm-eabi- make
    I get the following error:
    root@ubuntu:~# ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=~/mydroid/prebuilt/linux-x86/toolchain/arm-eabi-4.4.0/bin/arm-eabi- make
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
    root@ubuntu:~#
    i am following the instructions from LINUX CLUES: Howto BUILD the LINUX KERNEL for the ANDROID EMULATOR (Eclair version)
    so, What is the error, or do I have to execute this in some other directory?
    Please help. Thank you!
