You failed to provide info regarding the distro you're using, but
as your browser icon suggests "*buntu":
apt-cache search curses | grep -i dev

Chicken poohs, errrh, pick and choose.


Good luck!

BTW: The tutorial not withstanding you really should use a) a
more current kernel, and b) preferably the one your machine
actually uses ... otherwise you won't be able to test your
activities easily.



Cheers,
Tink

Indeed ... merged. Kind of confusing, too, since the original is flagged
as resolved.

This is redundant. Actually I posted this way before, when i wanted a start. I am presently just trying to build, configure and boot the kernel. This helped as always. Thanks...:-)

you might have to install ncurses library , the package name would be libncurses ( or some thing similar) .
Or you can use the default config by running the command

make defconfig.
