    Why do I need QT to use xconfig ?

    As demonstrated here.

    Code:
    supradeb:/usr/src/linux-2.6.7# ls -a
    .        CREDITS        Makefile        arch     fs       ipc     mm       security
    ..       Documentation  README          crypto   include  kernel  net      sound
    COPYING  MAINTAINERS    REPORTING-BUGS  drivers  init     lib     scripts  usr
    supradeb:/usr/src/linux-2.6.7# make mrproper
    supradeb:/usr/src/linux-2.6.7# make xconfig
      HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
      HOSTCC  scripts/basic/split-include
      HOSTCC  scripts/basic/docproc
    *
    * Unable to find the QT installation. Please make sure that the
    * QT development package is correctly installed and the QTDIR
    * environment variable is set to the correct location.
    *

    make: *** [xconfig] Error 2

    I don't have KDE on this system and I do not intend to. I have Gnome. Why do I need QT devel and how to remedy this without wasting a not needed resources?

    TIA

    Re:Why do I need QT to use xconfig ?

    make kconfig is based on QT. If you have gnome (gtk-libs), use make gconfig. It uses the gtk engine to display the configuration menu for the kernel.

    Code:
    make xconfig
    This new default graphical configuration system uses the QT libraries. I found it to be quite functional and easy to use.

    Wow, that tells how much I have been following Kernel development .

    Thanks Shebang.

    Step 4: Configure your new kernel.
    One of the first changes you'll notice is the new build system [story]. The old Tk/Tcl 'xconfig' build method no longer exists, replaced by a new QT based 'xconfig'. Non-QT fans will be happy to find that a GTK based 'gconfig' is also available for their use.

    Re:Why do I need QT to use xconfig ?

    Okay, now I have this error. How to fix it?

    Code:
    supradeb:/usr/src/linux-2.6.7# ls -a
    .        .config.cmd  CREDITS        Makefile        arch     fs       ipc     mm       security
    ..       .config.old  Documentation  README          crypto   include  kernel  net      sound
    .config  COPYING      MAINTAINERS    REPORTING-BUGS  drivers  init     lib     scripts  usr
    supradeb:/usr/src/linux-2.6.7# make bzimage
    make: *** No rule to make target `bzimage'.  Stop.
    supradeb:/usr/src/linux-2.6.7#

    It's make bzImage not bzimage, but you can just do make, it'll make a bzImage.
