    In doing so, you just added an extra option to the configuration...

    As I understand it, the method you're supposed to use is to do the

    cd /usr/src ; # or wherever...
    mv linux linux.old
    tar xzvf linux-$VSN.tar.gz
    cp linux.old/.config linux/.config
    cd linux
    make oldconfig
    make xconfig

    With the exception that I replace the last line with "make menuconfig"
    instead, that's what I've always used...

    Best wishes from Riley.
