    Exclamation Can't run xconfig, menuconfig or gconfig!


    I am using Fedora 9 (KDE 4.1.1)

    Here's the output:

    Code:
    [abhishek@localhost linux-2.6.26.5]$ sudo make xconfig
    [sudo] password for abhishek:
      CHECK   qt
    *
    * Unable to find the QT3 installation. Please make sure that
    * the QT3 development package is correctly installed and
    * either install pkg-config or set the QTDIR environment
    * variable to the correct location.
    *
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `scripts/kconfig/.tmp_qtcheck', needed by `scripts/kconfig/qconf.o'.  Stop.
    make: *** [xconfig] Error 2
    I searched for libqt3-mv-dev in yum but didn't find it.

    gconfig gives a similar error

    Code:
    [abhishek@localhost linux-2.6.26.5]$ sudo make gconfig
    [sudo] password for abhishek:
    *
    * Unable to find the GTK+ installation. Please make sure that
    * the GTK+ 2.0 development package is correctly installed...
    * You need gtk+-2.0, glib-2.0 and libglade-2.0.
    *

    For menuconfig, Yum refused to install ncurses

    Code:
    [abhishek@localhost linux-2.6.26.5]$ sudo yum install ncurses*

    Does anyone know what exact packages I'm supposed to install to get any of these working? Thanks!

    I know for compiling the kernel in debian I need the following files for either/or xconfig menuconfig, and here's how I install them:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential bin86 kernel-package libqt3-headers libqt3-mt-dev wget libncurses5 libncurses5-dev
