Here's what I get:

proot samiam:/sys $ find . -name opt_userconfig.h -print
proot samiam:/sys $ more ./compile/SAMIAM/opt_userconfig.h
#define USERCONFIG 1

Try redoing the config <KERNEL> (ie don't blow away the directory and
run the config). If that doesn't work, try reinstalling the kernel
source files.


Cyanide is so poisonous that one drop of it on a dog's
