Description Sebastian Kemper 2006-09-22 02:03:13 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur:2.6.17.x
Distribution: "Save Configuration to an Alternate File": backup file written 
one directory level beyond
Hardware Environment:x68
Software Environment:Gentoo Linux
Problem Description:When one saves the configuration a backup file is written 
called <name>.old. E.g. kernel is in /usr/src and you save the config 
to "../kconfig" the backup file is "/usr/src/kconfig.old". Not with 2.6.18: 
the backup file is "/usr/kconfig.old". It use "make menuconfig", didn't try 
xconfig or gconfig for instance.

Steps to reproduce:

Sorry for the grammar and spelling. Here I go again.

config to "../kconfig" the backup file is "/usr/src/kconfig.old". Not with 
2.6.18: the backup file is "/usr/kconfig.old". I use "make menuconfig", didn't
