2. make xconfig
3. make mrproper

woops.. make mrproper removes your .config file; these should be done in
the other order (eg first make mrproper and THEN make xconfig)

Could you please try that and let me know ?

Comment 3 Igor Pesando 2001-05-10 10:07:09 UTC
Even if I was (almost) sure I did in the proper order but I wrote in the wrong
one, I checked again and got the same error.
