Configure kernel source for standard debian kernel (module install)


I'd like to konw the command on how to configure the kernel source. I know how to recompile and build my own kernel but this time that just isn't needed. All I want to do is use the standard kernel and configure the source so I can compile modules with module-assistant (great tool).
I installed the linux-image-2.6.14-2-k7 and the linux-source-2.6.14. I copied the config from boot to /usr/src/.config and now need to know the command to get it configured. Could someone please enlighten me?

Regards

Dude, I admire you.

I'm not in touch with this stuff, but I believe in documentation:
http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/re...kernel-classic

Will that do it, or maybe the previous section? Seems like maybe "$ make menuconfig" is what you're after. (Hope I'm not sounding too stupid here.)

Good luck!

Try this.
Code:
apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.14-2-k7
m-a -i prepare
Which should setup the headers for the kernel to allow you to compile the module you want.
