Question Slack9-simple kernel compile question?


Hello, everyone. This is my first post on this forum(found it yesterday), and it's kinda got me bumfuzzled(grin).

When I start to compile my 2.4.20 kernel, using the guide from this site, I add the needed info to /etc/lilo.conf, #pico Makefile , uncomment line 74.

Then I enter: #make menuconfig ; here is the message I get:
"make: *** No rule to make target 'menuconfig'. Stop."

Did I forget to do something? What am I supposed to do to get it to work?


Any and all help is appreciated, BC

Are you issuing 'make' from the /usr/src/linux-2.4.20 directory?

I just did #cd /usr/src/linux.

Do I need to do #cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.20 ? It's beginning to make more sense now.

Thanks, BC

Depends on if /usr/src/linux is a link, and what it points to. But to be safe, yes:

# cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.20
# make menuconfig
