Her is yet another question about kernel compilation..
I just wonder if anyone could offer some tips & tricks on what config options you should use as a newbi on kernel recompiling (e.g file systems, ramdisk).
I recently recompiled my kernel (2.4.22) the manual way in debian 3. I first used the make-kpkg thing, but after a bunch of tries, it complained about my revision naming. I didnt know how to solv this, so I continued the "manual way".
I havent found any good guides on what basic things you should use when your recompiling yourself. it took numerous tries before I got the basic things to work (a lot of feats. are not included byt default).
So if anyone has a link or maybe manage to post som things you should think about ( and how modules.conf and such is updated) , I would appreciate it!!
By now, I have patched my kernel and I got the bootsplash thing to work (the progress bar dont work yet, havent found info on that yet..
The nex thing I wanna try out is lirc. AFAIK it seemes quite tricky, and there isnt a very verbous guide on doing it. I have built my own reciever, My reciever works in windows and its in COM1, but dont know what to include or have comp. as modules.
wow, this was quite a post, hope y'all read and answer some of my questions!!
ps. I have searched, but its a bit hard to find..or just me who suck i googling...
