           Summary: nALFS hangs while configuring kernel in chapter 8
           Product: Automated Linux From Scratch
           Version: 1.2.4
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: Back End (XML Handlers)

During kernel config, if the kernel configuration has some unexisting symbol (in
my case SIS190), the 'make oldconfig' make some questions that should be
answered Y or N. But nALFS doesn't expect that and hangs. Here's the backtrace:

(gdb) bt
#0  0x401167d8 in __libc_read () from /lib/libpthread.so.0
#1  0x402aeba0 in ?? () from /lib/libncurses.so.5

#6  0x0805979f in get_key ()
#7  0x0805b2d3 in browse ()
#8  0x0805cef4 in main ()

Here the last part of the log that is related to the above:
