Config.in Does Not Exist


I am using Mandrake 10 w/ kernel 2.6.4
I went to Configure your desktop, clicked System, clicked Linux Kernel. It says:

Quote:
Sorry

The kernel configuration could not be read do to the following error:

cannot open /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/config.in for reading

Either your kernel sources contain invalid configuration rules or you just found a bug in the KDE Kernel Configurator.
There is no config.in anywhere in /usr/src/linux/arch or the subfolders in it...

Do I need to run a command line to create config.in ? If not, where should I set the "Path to kernel sources"?

Thanks alot in advance!!

I think the 2.6 kernel dowsn't have a config.in file but the 2.4 one does. The reason why I say this is because I installed the 2.6 kernel source rpm and it doesn't have one and the installed the 2.4 kernel source rpm and it does.
