I realize I am a still a newbie, but I shouldn't be having this problem. I have configured 5 kernels already and have never had a problem like this!!
To get to the point. I have been trying discover the problem so I can configure my linux-2.4.22-21mdk kernel and it has crashed at the ALSA configuration point 26 times now in 3 days. No matter what I do I get the same error message and the same system report, which is really leaving me disgusted!!
The following is what I have been getting over and over and over. Is there anyone out there who can tell me where I got lost or whatever??
Menuconfig has encountered a possible error in one of the kernel's
configuration files and is unable to continue. Here is the error
Q> scripts/Menuconfig: line 832: MCmenu78: command not found
Please report this to the maintainer <email@example.com>. You may also
send a problem report to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Please indicate the kernel version you are trying to configure and
which menu you were trying to enter when this error occurred.
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 1
Then in the KDE Control Center I am told that I have, Type 10 ALSA Emulation, but I have absolutely no sound card.
Then I go to the Mandrake Control Center and I am given the following info about my SB Live!
Vendor: ?Creative Labs
Alternative drivers: ?audigy:emu10k1
Bus identification: ?1102:2:1102:8064
Location on the bus: ?0:b:0
Description: ?SB Live! (audio)
Media class: ?MULTIMEDIA_AUDIO
I have also been researching over 30 pages of instructions about installing the kernel, most being somewhat similar but at the same time being a bit different as well. So I tookt the majority of agreeing advice to do what I have already done 5 times before and just cannot figure the problem! I Sure do hoep someone can see what is going on here. PLEEEEEEEEEAAAAASE!!!
