kernel 2.6.0test7 make xconfig


Hi all,

I downloaded the new test kernel from kernel.org, uncompressed it, did make mrproper, then when I tryed make xconfig I get an error saying that some file is missing. Has anyone else had this problem and how did they fix it?

p.s.

Thank You,
and I will post the error in a few hours, I'm away from my Linux Box at the moment .

The new xconfig uses Qt so you need Qt to be installed. You might also need to set your QTDIR environment variable to the place where Qt is installed.

instead of xconfig, do gconfig.

QT is a widely used library for programming graphical user interfaces. It is used by all of the KDE applications in particular.

You probably already have the library itself installed but you need the development files (headers mainly). I believe the paclage name for the RedHat RPM you need to install is qt-devel.

You should have it on the RedHat CD's.
