ARM kernel configuration!!


Hi,,
i have this Kernel package: "linux-2.6.20.4.tar.gz". I found also this file encolsed in the CD: "linux-2.6.20.4-edb93xx.patch", is it a patch? if yes how do i apply it(it is not a a package to be extracted, is a file ".patch")?
i am trying to configure it using
Code:
$ make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE= arm-linux- menuconfig
and i get error that says:
Code:
In file included from scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/checklist.c:24:
scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/dialog.h:32:20: error: curses.h: No such file or directory
In file included from scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/checklist.c:24:
scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/dialog.h:97: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before ‘chtype’
scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/dialog.h:187: error: expected ‘)’ before ‘*’ token
and so one, and the last part of the presented output is:
Code:
make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/checklist.o] Error 1
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
NOTE: my toolchain version is gcc-4.0.1-glibc-2.3.5
any qlues?
thanks

You are definitely missing ' libncurses5-devel' (if still Mandriva ?)
Could be another name with a different distro.

Please always tell Linux "name" and "version" when asking a question.

To apply a patch :
Place the patch textfile outside your topdirectory (linux-2.6.20.4)
and run command 'patch -p0 < linux-2.6.20.4-edb93xx.patch'

I'm not quite sure with the option -p0. Might be -p1 etc.
Please see 'man patch' and "google" apply patch ..
and .. apply kernel patch .. for answers.

i also found this method to apply a patch:
e.g.
Code:
$ zcat ../linux-2.6.20.4-edb93xx.patch.gz|patch -p1
