SubjectRe: Configuring kernel
When I tried to execute the command "make xconfig" I
got the following output

rm -f include/asm
(cd include; ln -sf asm -i386 asm)
make -C scripts knconfig.tk
make: *** scripts: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2

When I executed the command 'rpm -q ncurses
ncurses-devel' I got the following output

ncurses-5.2-8
ncurses-devel-5.2-8

Could you please help me to fix the error.
Thanking You.
Regards,
Srinivas Chavva
