See the following document for more information:
.config file appears to be in the src folder for the kernel version e.g.
Need to prepare to use Steve (from C2’s) new kernel config:
Need to remember:
Backup my “howto” folder
To backup my existing kernel configuration
Make sure I add in the changes required for the graphics hardware: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/dri-howto.xml
Check the module required for my network card.
Make sure I change the processor to Pentium 4
Re-emerge ALSA sound driver (see above)
.config file with Steve’s (see above)
Could not get genkernel to run:
ERROR: Failed to compile the "menuconfig" target...
…had to remove the
genkernel --no-mrproper --menuconfig all
(so will probably take a long time to compile)
Re-booted and checked in new /config file to subversion.
Tried to re-emerge the ALSA sound drivers - got the same error as before. But everything is working - so not to worry!
Just checking the kernel - and the
.config file did not change.
gvimdiff and it should be very different!
