But soon as I run " make menuconfig" I get this huge error on my terminal... Its given below

Thank You

Check if ncurses and ncurses-devel are installed on your system using the command
rpm -qa | grep ncurses

If you don't get something similar to what I got below, you will need to install these two packages before you can proceed with your kernel compilation.

[vinu@vinu ~]$ rpm -qa | grep ncurses
ncurses-devel-5.6-6.20070303.fc7
ncurses-5.6-6.20070303.fc7
[vinu@vinu ~]$
