cd /usr/src cd linux no such file or directory


giving a go at my first kernel compile. following DaOne's guide.

rm -f linux
ln -s linux-2.6.0 returns

ln: ./linux cannot overwrite directory

so i assume it's there
cd linux
-bash: cd: linux: no such file or directory
where do i go from here? can i just go on w/ make menuconfig?

i'm alittle confused about the symlink step.

thx for any help.

first
cd /usr/src
ls
to see if linux-2.6.0 is there. If so then
ln -s linux-2.6.0 linux to make the link, then proceed with make menuconfig

thx, ln -s linux-2.6.0 linux worked. the bold shows what i was missing. the symlink thing is confusing. i still don't quite understand it. got more reading to do. back to the compiling. thx again.
