Problem building linux kernel on digi-connect me

0 votes
Hi All,

Trying to update the kernel on my board to include support for NFS client.
When I try to run the following command in the ../build/kernel directory
Code:
make menuconfig

I get the following error message

Install ncurses (ncurses-devel) and try again.

viewing Synaptic Package Manger
I have libncurses5-dev entry and some other related entries to ncurses.

I also tried the following command

*make gconfig
*make xconfig

They all spat out some form of error so I will like to try and get "make menuconfig" working.

The project builds fine, so I know its not a build issue.
Any help on this will be welcomed.
Many thanks in advance.

Regards
Ola

Why don't you run this command again, maybe it needs to be reinstalled.

sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev
