You need to install the kernel source and probably tell kcmlinuz where
it is. I suggest you don't use kcmlinuz and use make xconfig or make
menuconfig instead. You need to install the ncurses-dev (menuconfig) or
libqt-mt-dev (xconfig) packages.

No, it doesn't work that way. I suppost the klaptop program is supposed
to run under your user ID, so you need to be logged into X, and start
the program from within the X server, or tell it which DISPLAY to use.
The best way is probably to write a small skript and place it in
