Kernel question


From a link on how to install DBus it says:


Quote:
Ensure the following option is enabled in the kernel configuration and recompile the kernel if necessary:

General Setup
System V IPC
How exactly do I do this??

Thanks

You should have a kernel configuration file in /boot (which may be called "config", or "config-kernel-version" (where "kernel-version" should be obvious). You want to check that CONFIG_SYSVIPC is set to "y" in this file, which you can do simply by using grep on the file, e.g. "grep CONFIG_SYSVIPC config". Read the man page for grep if you want more information about how to use it.
