I'm using menuconfig, and trying to grab some wisdom at pappy's kernelseeds and numerous forum posts.

But still, many explanations of kernel configurations are just double dutch to me -- or simply have no explanation at all.

Is there a more talkative (and possibly gui-based) program?

There are the following nice UI's:

make xconfig - provides a qt4 based interface.
make gconfig - provides a gtk based interface
make nconfig - provides a nicer ncurses based interface.

none of the above is more "informative" than the help you can get by pressing 'h' on any item while running menuconfig.

Hi , i get
Code:
emerge -av gconfig

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "gconfig".

emerge: searching for similar names...
emerge: Maybe you meant any of these: virtual/pkgconfig, dev-util/pkgconfig, sys-devel/gnuconfig, net-misc/vconfig?


Ma Google doesn't reveal anything useful as well

Which is gconfig's ebuild?

No ebuild. Just run
Code:
make gconfig
instead of
Code:
make menuconfig
If you're using genkernel, then the command line option is --gconfig. :wink:
