I know I've asked this question before, but I've noticed while
compiling v2.2.15pre19 that USB communications are supported by it. The
problem is though, when I run menuconfig the conifigurator will not
allow the USB options to be embedded within the kernel. Everytime I try
and hit the return key (to move from the "M" to a "*") the system beeps
and nothing happens. I can continue through and the compiling goes
without fail but when I try to boot with the new kernel the USB ports
are not recognized. So far I have been forced to use the precompiled
kernel I downloaded for booting with BootX.
Is there anyone who has successfully configured either the
2.2.15pre19 or 2.3.99pre6 for a Yikes! G4/400? I've been using the
instructions I downloaded for the 2.2.14pre9 kernel and I'm wondering if
there are some steps that I've been missing. Do I need to include a ln
-s /usr/src/linux/include/usb/ usb to the 7th step in the instructions?
If there is someone who knows the steps, please reply to this with
an instruction list.
