Hello everyone, 

I'm a DPDK newbie, so my apologies for the naïve question. I'm trying to use the instructions at http://dpdk.org/doc/quick-start. 

I've cloned the DPDK repo, & started with the make command. I got: 

stanr at stansubu:~$ git clone http://dpdk.org/git/dpdk
Cloning into 'dpdk'...

stanr at stansubu:~$ cd dpdk
stanr at stansubu:~/dpdk$ make config T=x86_64-default-linuxapp-gcc
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/home/stanr/dpdk/config/defconfig_x86_64-default-linuxapp-gcc', needed by `/home/stanr/dpdk/build/.config'.  Stop.
make: *** [config] Error 2
stanr at stansubu:~/dpdk$ ls

Are the instructions out of date?
