Hi Wolfgang,

You are right, I did mess up with the windows file system, after
downloading the code with the help of Cygwin version of git. This time I
did connect my linux machine to internet and downloaded the Linux sources.
When I compiled the default version with the below commad line parameters
I am getting the following errors. Can you please suggest me what could be
the problem?

I am not able to make it which driver is creating this error.

$ make ARCH=powerpc CROSS_COMPILE=ppc_82xx- uImage
