I am using petalinux 2017.2 on ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Whenever I run petalinux-config -c kernel , it does not open kernel configuration menuconfig. Instead it continues with sourcing bitbake and building kernel image.
When I ran petalinux-config -c rootfs , it nicely opens configuration menu window.
How to solve?
Thanks in Advance.

It is recommended to use Ubuntu 16.04 to for installing petalinux 2017.2
Refer to page 8 here

You should be aware that the kernel menuconfig is opened in a separate console terminal. At least when running it in a GUI terminal. Could this be your problem?

Yes. These two open the menu in the same terminal as where you typed the command. They do not open a new terminal window as the kernel configuration does.

@vanmierlo, I was not aware that kernel configuration opens in a new terminal window. It would open in the same console in petalinux 2015.4.
I am running petalinux-config -c kernel in /bin/bash. Is it a bash problem?
what is the solution for this then ?

I think bash is the recommended shell. But on Ubuntu you might have dash as sh and that could be problematic.
Further, are you using a terminal in the GUI or on a real console (e.g. Alt-F1) or via ssh/telnet?

In order to isolate your issue I would suggest to ssh to your ubuntu machine using https://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download-home-edition.html which allows X11 forwarding for meunconfig popup. If this works then we can isolate your problem on Ubuntu 16.04
