    HELP! Updating Kernel

    Have tried updating the kernel, downloaded a complete version, extracted the tarball, and run
    make menuconfig and this error:
    make[2]: *** [scripts/lxdialog/checklist.o] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
    make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
    a mate suggeted this is bcoz ncurses is not installed, so went to YaST2, it is installed. He suggested running make xconfig, and i get this error:
    make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/.tmp_qtcheck] Error 1
    make: *** [xconfig] Error 2
    He thought qt wasn't installed, it is! Now both of us are dried out on ideas as to why it's not workin! Anyone else had this prob and got over it? Or got any ideas about how to get round it?

    That's not the actual error - that's just make indicating that a sub-process has returned with an error. You need to post the original error.

    Sorry, after extracting the tarball, i used make config in the extracted dir i.e linux-2.6.2. and comes up with LOADS of options, so make sure you have time!!!!

    ok, so i got as far as all that, and have setup the kernel, now i need GRUB to recognize the new kernel rather than the old one. What needs doing? I found a prog that creates a new menu.lst file, is this all that needs doin?
