Kernel make menuconfig fails

Post by kerrgi » Fri Nov 14, 2008 22:23

Hello, I'm trying to compile a custom kernel from the kernel.org sources, and when I run make menuconfig it fails bring up the errors found here: http://rafb.net/p/Vv5qXw50.html.

I suspect it may be from missing kernel-headers, but there is no kernel-headers file in equo. Anyone know what is most likely the issue here?

Please note: I'm only using kernel.org sources because my hardware needs the latest drivers; make menuconfig fails with the sabayon kernel sources too.

Thanks in advance,

Greg

there is a lot of kernel sources in portage already - why not give them a whirl - can go all the way up to .28 even

Right but what I'm saying is that they still don't build.

make menuconfig doesn't work any of the sources
