Description:The README of zaptel states:

       Some of the testing programs still require the zapata library
       The zttool program requires libnewt

But it also requires a "make menuconfig" (and possible "make") in the /usr/src/linux-2.6 directory.

If this isn't done, it complains about not being able to find .config and throws a lot of errors.

libnewt IS NOT a requirement.  the symlink to /usr/src/linux-2.6 to /usr/src/linux is standard and we aren't the only ones that would require it.

linux26: prereq $(BINS)
       @if ! [ -d /usr/src/linux-2.6 ]; then echo "Link /usr/src/linux-2.6 to your kernel sources first!"; exit 1 ; fi
       make -C /usr/src/linux-2.6 SUBDIRS=$(PWD) modules

The make file EVEN tells you this.

zttool is not a requirement to use zaptel.

The symlink if missing is told to you during a "make linux26"

<i>libnewt IS NOT a requirement.</i>

I never said it required it, I was quoting the documentation.

<i>the symlink to /usr/src/linux-2.6 to /usr/src/linux is standard</i>

I didn't say anything about the symlinks, I was quoting the documentation.

I stated that it wouldn't compile without having done a "make menuconfig" in the /usr/src/linux-2.6 directory first.
