Hi Firerat,

lfsuthayan at ubuntu:/$ make -j1
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

I also tried in following way

lfsuthayan at ubuntu:/$ export MAKEFLAGS='-j 1'
lfsuthayan at ubuntu:/$ make -j1
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

But earlier, Since My laptop is core to duo i set it to two and i didnt get
any sort of error.
