Kernel configuration options?

Kernel configuration options?

Post by Randy Coope » Wed, 08 Jul 1998 04:00:00

On the Slackware CDs there is a list of options used to compile each
variation of the kernel that is supplied in the distribution.

Can anyone tell me if there is such a file available for the kernel
supplied with the RedHat 5.0 distribution. If so, what is the name of the
file? If not is there some command that can be used to supply this info?

Thanks for any help you are able to provide.


1. Petition against kernel configuration options madness...


It took me about an hour to find out why my keyboard didn't work in 2.5.45.
Well... after all it seemed that I need to enable 4 ! options inside the
input configuration, just to get my default, nothing special PS/2 keyboard up
and running. Oh, and I didn't even have my not so fancy boring default PS/2
mouse configured then. Guys, being able to configure everything is nice, but
with the 2.5 kernel, things are definitely getting out of control IMHO.
