Hello all!

I have recently started to get my system ready for some android software and kernel programming. I am following the guide from the cyanogenmod website. I am unable to post an exact link due to my low post count, apologies. If you really need to see which guide I am using, message me and ill get it to you.


I am stuck on the last step of "Configure the Build."

When I send "make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=$CCOMPILER oldconfig" to terminal, the following is my output.


Code:
[email protected]:~/android/system# make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=$CCOMPILER oldconfig
/bin/bash: bison: command not found

[email protected]:~/android/system#

I am unable to locate BoardConfig.mk for an unknown reason. Also, I dont know why the GREP returned no such file or directory, and why src wasnt found either.

Please help, I am almost completely set up to start helping the community!

Thanks,
