Smile uncomment? *huh?*


okay so.. I just need to know, what does uncomment mean? I'm going to try to compile the 2.6 kernel tonight, and reading one of the kernel compiling guides it says to uncomment line xxx, does it mean I should delete that specific line or..?
hehe! thnx

when using your favor editor (nedit in my case, u can use vi or what not)

uncomment means delete a # in front of it.
for example:

#for (int i, i < amount, i++)

if you wanna "uncomment" it...
delete #
so the compiler can read:

for (int i, i < amount, i++)

hope that helps
