Description Elton Woo 2003-09-16 00:50:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703

Description of problem:
KDE control center does not allow kernel configuration,
but instead pops up an error message to the effect that:
"The kernel configuration could not be read due to the following error: 

/usr/src/linux-2.4/drivers/net/wan/Config.in, line 84:

^ parse error

Either your kernel sources contain invalid configuration rules or you just found
a bug in the KDE Kernel Configurator."


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open KDE Control Panel
2. Select System Administration, and Linux Kernel

Actual Results:  Above mentioned error shows in window.

Expected Results:  First, the dialog window should (must) have the requirement
"Administrator mode" ... since, logically the user should 
not have access to modifying the kernel options.
The selection dialog buttons "Load from" and "save as"
should not be greyed out, but should be functional

the KDE Kernel Configurator module is broken and was already removed in
kde-3.2.x upstream
