xconfig kernel compile problems


When I type make xconfig in the kenel source folder, I get the following message:
make[1]: `scripts/fixdep' is up to date.
*
* Unable to find the QT installation. Please make sure that the
* QT development package is correctly installed and the QTDIR
* environment variable is set to the correct location.
*
make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/.tmp_qtcheck] Error 1
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2

What's the problem and how do I fix it?

Hi!

Just install qt development package or just try "menuconfig" instead.

QT is the toolkit/widget set with which KDE (among other things) is built. Widgets are things like buttons, scrollbars etc - ie. most of the graphics which make KDE look the way it does.

The error message means that QT is either missing or incorrectly configured. It's hard to tell you how to install what's missing without knowing which distribution you're using, but if all you want to do is make a custom kernel you're better off just using 'make menuconfig' instead of 'make xconfig' as chii-chan says. It's less attractive, but no more difficult to navigate through.
