Let me say hello as this is my first time posting to the forums! I've been wading my way through linux and just have not been getting any breaks.
I'm in the process of updating the kernel using the guide shown here:
I'm at the point where I had extracted the latest stable kernel to its own folder in the /usr/src directory. The structure I see is as follows:
So I'm assuming the extraction went fine. I created a shortcut called 'linux' in the /usr/src folder and pointed it to the 126.96.36.199 folder. After switching to /usr/src/linux, I run the command "make gconfig" and get this response:
make: *** No rule to make target 'gconfig'. Stop.
Searching google I only found one person making mention that this command should be run as the root, which I did.
