[Buildroot] broken build rootfs workflow

I'll second that this is a problem.

My automated build script does very similar to yours, but then I copy the 3 .config files from the 'local' directory into the correct folders and call make a final time.

Subject: [Buildroot] broken build rootfs workflow


So far, I have my own configuration file (project, uclibc, busybox) to build rootfs.

I tried this workflow and it seems broken:

make defconfig
make BOARD=myproject getconfig
make oldconfig
make UCLIBC_CONFIG_FILE=local/myproject/uclibc.config BUSYBOX_CONFIG_FILE=local/myproject/busybox.config

1) the defconfig call is needed otherwise getconfig doesn't work on a fresh checkout:
Makefile:227: .config.cmd: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `.config.cmd'.  Stop.

2) my configuration files (UCLIBC_CONFIG_FILE/BUSYBOX_CONFIG_FILE) aren't passed correctly during build process:
my provided uclibc.config is completely different from the generated/used .config.

I would like to build a project using my 3 provided configurations files in a non-interactive mode (in a script as an example or a buildbot setup).

Anyone ?
