I want to configure kernel 2.6.30 for ARM CPU in a graphical environment (under Ubuntu 10.04). There is program , named "qconf" witch do this easily .

But I can't run it . I download and install "qconf" but it's not graphical (just, terminal commands) . If you know a way to install it or an other safe and stable program , help me .

If I understand you correctly, you are compiling a kernel and want a graphical tool to review the configuration ?

Install the dependencies

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libglib2.0-dev libglade2-dev

Then to use it you

make gconfig

Thank you for responding,but "make gconfig" return's :No rule to make 'gconfig'.Should I use it (make gconfig) in specific folder?And how can I run this graphical tool or software? – Mohammads Feb 5 '12 at 11:41
you need to be in the same directory as the kernel source. Are you sure you know how to do this ? – bodhi.zazen Feb 5 '12 at 14:48
