I didn't build test10, but used test9 and now test11 without these errors. I don't have a suggestion on why the menu config errors, unless you have not yet updated the key software needed to support the new kernel format (modutils, binutils, make). See this article for some help (the versions needed at minimum are listed, I don't recall whether the base Fedora install includes them). For the rebooting kernel, if you are unfamiliar with the kernel options in 2.6, or haven't yet built a 2.6 kernel that worked I suggest you get a config/kernel from RedHat's Arjanv and start from there with modifications. The added benefit is these are patched with some of the RedHat kernel patches already.

http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.5/

Here you'll find RPMs for kernel, kernel-source, and the necessary other updates needed on your system to build 2.6 kernels (modutils etc.)

Not sure about the make menuconfig, do you have ncurses installed, etc?

But if you did configure your Kernel with the make config and then did make, why are you skipping the 6 or more other steps in the process of compiliing your kernel?

Of course your going to get errors if you only did a 'make config' and then 'make'.

There are many more steps involved. I would suggest you reading the kernel howto at www.tldp.org for more details as installing a kernel, etc.

Optional 2.6 RPMs are now available in the development repository for Fedora, these are evidently configured more to work with Fedora than Arjanv's kernel config, and possibly the first 2.6 version slated to be built for FC2 tests.
