The kernel configuration error. 9.1


I just have installed mandrake9.1 and I have gone to KDE controle module to see kernel configration but I have seen messeges as follows," The kernel configration could not be read due to the following error:can not open /usr/src/linux/arch//config.in for reading
Either your kernel sources contain invalid configration rules or you just found a bug in the Kernel Configurator".
I am a very biginer and do not know how to use japanese input yet(therefore can't access to japaneseone) so please easy explanation!

What's happening is that you don't have the kernel sources for some reason (which is very unlikely, albeit possible). They could also be linked properly
Go into /usr/src
And make sure there's a linux directory. Also make sure it's a symmlink to /usr/src/linux<some version>
If you only have /usr/src/<some version of linux>
Make a symmlink to linux

ln -s <some version of linux> linux

From console, or use your preffered GUI
That should fix it.

actually, chances are you don't have the kernel sources installed since mandrake 9.1 does not install them by default. You can install them easily though. Go to mandrake control center -> software management -> install software and look for a package called 'kernel source' and install it.

so have you managed to install the kernel sources or not? If you haven't, go to mandrake control center -> softwaremanagement and install it from there. From the command line, you can use
urpmi kernel-source
and it should get install as well (you have to be root).
