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.
