Upgraded to Kernel ver. 2.6.1 and the config.in file is missing


Hi everyone,

After a lot of troubleshooting kernel 2.6.1 is finaly working in a stable way.

However, it seems that "/usr/src/linux/.arch/i386/config.in" is missing !

How can this file be recreated ?

Any ideas ?

Thanks

Your path is incorrect. You have .arch and it should be arch without the .

Fix that in whatever code you are messing with and your compile should be just fine.

You are right, the "dot" was incorrect (it was a typo).

But still, I can't see a config.in file in this directory:
/usr/src/linux/arch/i386

Here is the listing of this directory:

Code:

It caught my curiocity, why the KDE control center reports the error, and decided to investigate.

Control Center --> System Administration --> Linux Kernel

Is this a bug in KDE ?
