Issue with PCIE mini port (OpenRex)

imsaditya , 06-01-2018, 06:22 AM
The wifi card for PCIe mini was not being detected even after I tried to enable the PCIe port. I followed the instructions in [http://www.imx6rex.com/open-rex/soft...ls/#wifi_4965] website. The TeraTerm console constantly displays the error message ---

*** No rule to make target `menuconfig'. Stop.

And while executing the command lspci no PCIe devices were recognized as such.

Kindly suggest how to enable the PCIe port for a wireless module and wifi module to be operated.

P.S. The kernel I'm using is Jasbir's filesystem image and it doesn't have the required drivers. Kindly tell a solution for that too.
With regards.

This looks to me more like problem with setup on host machine where you compile kernel. Maybe PCIE was not correctly enabled in kernel?

Any solution as to how we can enable PCIe in the kernel? I'm using the Jasbir's filesystem and have updated the distribution...

Can you describe how did you enable the PCIe in kernel? How did you run menuconfig? You may need to run this whole command:
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=/opt/freescale/usr/local/gcc-4.6.2-glibc-2.13-linaro-multilib-2011.12/fsl-linaro-toolchain/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi- menuconfig

It looks like, when you run menuconfig, yours setup doesn't know the TARGET.. Did you run something like this before going into menuconfig?
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=/opt/freescale/usr/local/gcc-4.6.2-glibc-2.13-linaro-multilib-2011.12/fsl-linaro-toolchain/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi- imx6_defconfig
