take a look at the .config file in /usr/src/linux. See if it's
actually writing the right option out. No real need to do a make proper
to begin with. I think it just wipes out your .config file. IMHO not
something you really want. So skip that step but that shouldn't be your
problem. Doesn't SuSE still have make xconfig available to root? Try
that instead. It's a little easier to see everything.


Anybody got plans for an ark?
