Error build Linux 2.6.35 kernel with minicom

Hi All,

  I wanted to include minicom in my kernel to assist me in debugging my Host USB Serial port on the i.MX28 EVK. I have Linux 2.6.35 installed. I first ran into problems after selecting minicom in LTIB and trying to build the kernel. Minicom wasn't found. I was able to get Tech Support to send me the missing file (minicom_2.2.orig.tar.gz), but when I build the kernel, I get errors (window.h:154: error: conflicting types for 'wprintf'). See the attached file for a complete screen dump.

  Any ideas on how to get this to build correctly? Is there a patch?

  Is there a later version that works or an alternative that will do the same things?
