Dependency resolving[edit]

Isn't the dependency resolving also a "pro" of menuconfig? 137.122.32.16 (talk) 18:51, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

maybe - but it uses the same underlying data as the simple questionnaire. menuconfig's main advantage over that is that you can change your mind repeatedly before writing the updated .config file Tedickey (talk) 01:08, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

History[edit]

menuconfig was forked from dialog around 1996. Does anyone have precise date for that? Tedickey (talk) 01:08, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Encyclopedia material?[edit]

Is this article really an encyclopedia material? It's just one of ways to configure linux kernel. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.106.103.248 (talk) 18:39, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

You're right, it's not; the article is more like a tutorial/guide for menuconfig. -- intgr [talk] 18:53, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
I was just coming here to ask about that, too. I really don't think that this belongs on Wikipedia. (and neither does Xconfig, by extension.) --86.138.100.145 (talk) 15:00, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
Whoops - that reply was me not logged in. --TheSophera (talk) 15:02, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
I must say that I agree completely. PERHAPS a more general and better written article on Linux configuration that includes a brief outline of menuconfig and xconfig would be of use. --AndyPreston —Preceding undated comment added 16:14, 12 December 2011 (UTC).
