When I issue make -f mymake, I am getting the error:

/scripts/Makefile.build:44: /home/zaheer/wkspc/Makefile: No such file or directory

I think Makefile.build is not recognizing mymake as make file.

It is getting build when I remake mymake to Makefile.

How do I fix this?

What are you trying to compile? Is there a link to download it? –  medigeek Nov 9 '12 at 14:42
Also, can you show us your Makefile? See tldp.org/LDP/lkmpg/2.6/html/x181.html and stackoverflow.com/questions/6755677/what-is-wrong-with-make –  medigeek Nov 9 '12 at 14:50
