Problem with the "make config" command

Kernel Compilation from Source for New Users

I download the linux-2.6.37-ARCH source files and copied them to /usr/src/.Then i  used "cd linux-2.6.37-ARCH" to move to that directory so i could
use the "make config" command.Now,when i use "make config" a prompt comes up and I'm not sure how to configure it to my system.
(when the prompt comes up there are several hundred questions to answer)

[root@Online linux-2.6.37-ARCH]# make config
scripts/kconfig/conf --oldaskconfig Kconfig
# using defaults found in arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig
* Linux/x86_64 2.6.37 Kernel Configuration
* General setup
Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers (EXPERIMENTAL) [Y/n/?] 

I think i might have just figured it out. "make xconfig"

Are you sure of that command?  Could you have meant make menuconfig  ??

Re: Problem with the "make config" command

use abs, use makepkg. It will save you from a lot of headaches and problems.
