Don't su in X, sux instead.
cd /usr/src/linux
sux -
make xconfig

Or use sudo (requires some elementary vi skills, unless you set your EDITOR

1. As root run the command visudo
2. Enter something like this, replacing Anders with your login name:
( Now you can run commands as root -even in X - without logging in as root if
you precede your commands with sudo.)
3. cd /usr/src/linux && sudo make xconfig

BTW menuconfig is IMHO far more user-friendly.
