    Phoronix: Linux Kernel's Kconfig xconfig Ported To Qt5

    It's usually not worth mentioning Kconfig changes for each new Linux kernel release, but this time around there is actually new functionality to point out...

      That would be gconfig.

        Do people actually use the GUI versions of these tools... the crappy original xconfig, or the Gtk+ or Qt variants? I might have thought that anyone competent to be building a kernel from source would be perfectly happy with menuconfig... having multiple GUI frontends for it seems extraordinary overkill...

          I use xconfig because it have nice search option so I can fast switch some settings without knowing where they are.

              I'm surprised that -- at least to my knowledge -- no one has yet written a kernel config tool in bash, csh or zsh.

                Huh, wasn't the Qt frontend called qconfig?

                Anyway, nconfig for the win!
