-	  Xenomai Kernel part.
+	  Xenomai is split in two parts: a kernel part and an userspace part.
+	  Enabling this option automatically select the Xenomai package and help
+	  to patch the linux kernel build by Builroot with the Xenomai kernel
+	  part (ie ADEOS/IPIPE).
-	  In the current version of Xenomai, the following kernel
-	  versions are supported: on Blackfin, 2.6.34 and, on
-	  SH4,, on x86,,,, on
-	  ARM,,,, on NIOS2, 2.6.35, on
-	  PowerPC,,, 3.0.8.
+	  You can find the currently supported kernel list by looking at the
+	  available patches in the Xenomai sources tree:
+	  ksrc/arch/$(ARCH)/patches
+	  However, It's recommended to use the latest version of the adeos/ipipe
+	  which is available at http://download.gna.org/adeos/patches
+	  Xenomai is know to support Blackfin, SH4, x86, ARM, NIOS2 and PowerPC
+	  architectures.

 	string "Path for Adeos patch file"
 	  Optionally, explicitly specify the Adeos patch to use.
