    Linux Kernel - Control Centre (suse9.1)


    When I go to the Control Centre and click on "Linux Kernel" I get the following message.

    "Sorry

    The Kernel configuration could not be read due to the following error:

    No hardware architecture was specified! Perhaps the kernel source code is not installed on this system, or the path to the kernel sources is entered incorrectly.

    Either your kernal sources contain invalid configuration rules or you just found a bug in the KDE kernel configurator."

    The path to the kernel is set at /usr/src/linux.

    Should I be concerned about this?

    Cheers

    Do you have a kernel source tree in /usr/src/linux? If not, then you can download/install one. You really only need this if you want to compile a custom kernel.

    Thanks

    /usr/src/linux doesn't exist, so I guess I don't. Compiling kernels is a bit beyond me at the moment! I'll save that one for a rainy day!!

    Cheers
