Re: Trying to build a custom kernel (xconfig)
You seem to have everything you need for 'make xconfig' but you have to tell
the X server that it's ok for your client program (wish) to connect to it. Try
'export DISPLAY=:0' before 'make xconfig'.
If it still won't work and I guess it won't, you have to use command 'xhost +
localhost' as the user that started X. This adds your host to the list of
hosts that are allowed to connect to your X server. I assume that you didn't
run X as root but did eg. 'su -' to gain root privileges.
The problem with 'make menuconfig' is that although you have ncurses libraries
and all the other ncurses stuff, you don't have ncurses3.0-dev package that
has 'ncurses.h' in it.
I guess you also have the package 'kernel-package' that contains helpful
scripts etc. to make building kernels in Debian easier. If not, check that
'misc' sections in stable or unstable.
