    Kernel Compile


    I want to execute "make xconfig", but when I write it (as root) show me the next message:
    "Unable to find the QT installation. Please make sure that the
    * QT development package is correctly installed and the QTDIR
    * environment variable is set to the correct location.
    *
    make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/.tmp_qtcheck] Error 1
    make: *** [xconfig] Error 2

    I go to "/Usr/src//linux-2.6.8.1-12mdk" and I did the "make", then the "Make Clean" and "Make mrproper", but I can't configure my kernel. Help me please, What's the error ? I'm a newbie

    Also, the kernel source files are not installed by default with this distro: something that took me a while to work out! The header files and development packages you need might be on your installation disk.

    If you installed from a cd-rom, they might not be. It's different with - for example - Slackware, where everything you need is installed for you.

    Thanks !!!!

    Thanks, I don't know about "Make Menuconfig", I wrote it and I can access to the kernel configuration menu. Thanks budman7 for the tip, and thanks fingal.

    You should install devel packages of Qt

    or

    if you want another graphical configuration, type make gconfig. You must have gtk devel packages
