You need to build a custom kernel for CentOS. The Centos OS is based on the Linux which is the type of Unix operating system. It will help you to run the make menuconfig command. You can help the custom options from the CentOS sources which will provide the facility to build the custom kernel in the Centos. Then use these inbuilt custom options of the Centos source and make the new kernel in the system. Then you can be easily run the make menuconfig command into the Centos command prompt.

Re: How to run the make menuconfig in Centos 5.5

Hey dude, I also faced the similar kind of issue. In that time, I try to make custom, kernel but it shows error message. Every time I use make rpm command and try to build the custom kernel but within few seconds it gives the error message. Then I referred the markkuk in the wiki Centos and it describes that there is no make rpm command presents in the Centos. So, then I doesn?t use this command to build custom kernel. Then I download kernel.org web site and install it. It helps me to run the make menuconfig command.

Hey, I think you need to rebuild a new kernel. The new kernel helps you to solve this kind of trouble. For building new kernel, you need the step by step process which is presents in the user guide manual of the Centos 5.5 and it also helpful you to describe the make menuconfig command run procedure. Then as per mine suggestions you need to read the manual of the Centos and understand the process of the system. It help you lot to solve the trouble.

Re: How to run the make menuconfig in Centos 5.5

Few weeks ago I need to run the make menuconfig command. In that time I had some hardware troubles and I need to fix this kind of issues. Then somebody told me that the make menuconfig command helpful to fix the hardware trouble and hence I decided to use this command. Then I read the manual of the Centos but it can?t help me to understand the procedure for running the make menuconfig command. Then, I read this procedure on the Centos forum and it gives the step by step process of running the command.
