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.
