    question from newbie about kernel 2.6.7


    i try to compile kernel, i have 2 question

    1) guiconfig of kernel 2.6.7 don't use xwindow but use qt. each option has check box that has two mark, correct and dot.
    dose dot mark is to use that option as module ?

    2) in other version of kernel that use xwindow for guiconfig. it has configure.help that can opened by text editor.
    what file of kernel 2.6.7 that like configure.help that can read describe with out use guiconfig ? or it separated in to several file
    thanks very much

    Yes, an "correct" means "y(es)" (in kernel), and a "dot" means "m(odule)". (and an empty box is "n(o)" ).
    btw, In the 2.6 series the are _two_ graphical configs, "xconfig" and "gconfig" - but both have the basic same usage

    The "make xconfig" and "make gconfig" should show those "help" text in the right bottom panel/frame when selecting an config option - I'll take a look and see if I can find the file.
