I've been adding hardweare to my machine, messing around with make xconfig a bit, and had no trouble recompiling the kernel and rebooting. Now after adding video drivers, when I make bzImage I am prompted for all kinds of processor info and crap like that. After 3 previous compiles this did not happen. Anyone know what's going on here?

is this in the kernel configuration or as you type 'make bzImage' ? it shouldn't be asking ne questions after that, only displaying error messages.

what exactly does it say?

Fixed it......

Man I dunno what happened there, but I went and started the kernel recreation process a couple of times and it worked fine. I think for some reason the last time I was in make xconfig the .config file wasn't created.......
