Question Error installing "Mac On Linux" when i run make and make install

I am trying to install Mac On Linux but I get this error when I run make
+ Entering lxdialog
+ Entering kconfig
can't find file config/Kconfig-amd64
make[2]: *** [menuconfig] Error 1
make[1]: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
make: *** [do-bootstrap] Error 2
I was following these instructions
Compilation Instructions


Before the compilation, a configuration menu will appear allowing
MOL configuration settings to be tweaked. It is possible to return to
this menu later by issuing the command 'make menuconfig'.

Building MOL from the source tarball:

This is very simple just do

bash$ ./
bash$ make
bash$ make install (as root)

During the compilation, a configuration menu will appear allowing various
optional features to be turned on or off. It is possible to revisit this
menu later by issuing 'make menuconfig'. The 'make defconfig' command
sets the default configuration.
Thanx in advance for any responses

You know this will only work if you use a PowerPC processor (IBM CPU, not Intel or AMD). If you use a PC (x86(_64)) CPU, your better to use VMware to try VirtualBox. Depending on your country laws, it may be legal to patch a legally purchased copy of OSX to make it run in VMWare or event naively, but if you try the former, them there is better forum than this one to talk about it.

If you want to run the PowerPC version of OSX (9.2-10.4), try with PearPC, you might have more luck.

:P I don't have a powerPC processor so I guess that concludes this topic.
Thanx anyway!
