i assume the following reasons for this
1)no dev would really care to search through and help out
2)users are scared to pm dev's
3)their posts are getting lost due to no actiivity within seconds of posting
as a outcome of all the above
the user isn't getting help
so i thought of making a thread for just source build errors..
so this this thread will focus on providing answers for all the problems that you are facing while building from source......
now i would like the users to follow a format similar to this for reporting
1)A full error encountered (pastie or any similar site's
2)your device name
3)your device tree that you have used for compiling(github link)
4)which rom are you building(cm aokp etc)
5)The guide which you are using to build(link)
another kind request please spread the link for this thread as many may benefit from it....
and find developers who are interested in helping....
feel free to give suggestions....
Before you move ahead make sure you copy paste this into the terminal

build/core/product_config.mk:196: *** _nic.PRODUCTS.[[device/YG/m805_892x/device_m805_892x.mk]]: "device/YG/m805_892x/m805_892x-vendor-blobs.mk" does not exist. Stop.
Here in your device folder it is calling a make file which is required for compiling as in this case (device_m805_892x.mk) has a reference to
is there in vendors folder... as in this case this is not found ..
1)remove the reference to that makefile..
2)check the path for makefile(these are case sensitive)
3)correct the makefile in vendor folder to match that in the makefile that has called it
make: *** No rule to make target `vendor/cm/proprietary/RomManager.apk', needed by `out/target/product/m805_892x/system/app/RomManager.apk'. Stop. make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
cause for the problem
Here the script is written to copy rommanager.apk to system app during the build process...
But the apk is missing which is stoping the make process
cd into vendors/cm
then type this
