emerge of svgalib-1.9.19 fails with

function kernel module configoption, line 114, exitcode 1
kernel has not been configured yet

I have looked for posts and see some that relate to mrproper cleaning out info required - is this the problem here (I thought that you always issue make mrproper at the start of kernel reconfiguration)?

I am recompiling kernel now and 'make mrproper' complained that there was no versions.h - is this what svgalib picked up?

thanks for any help

Is the linux symbolic link in /usr/src broken?

I ran into the same problem, and I found that I forgot to change the link in /usr/src the last time that I upgraded my kernel. Because I removed the old tree, the link was broken.

cd /usr/src
ln -sf linux-2.6.10-r1 linux

Use whatever version of kernel that you have.

Better:
Code:

ln -snf linux-2.6.10-r1 linux
if ./linux is an existing link

Thanks for the tip! That was basically the problem for me.

I was clearing some space on my hd a few days ago and deleted the kernel source. However, simply unpacking and symlinking wasn't enough - I had to recompile the kernel (though I didn't bother to install it) before svgalib would compile.
