How does one discover if AMD 790X chipset support is in a given kernel?
It's been years since I compiled my primary machine's kernel
( not necessary, nowadays )
and think I remember having to choose the chipset,
and I know that the BeOS coders said that chipset was more crucial than CPU,
in whether one's kernel would function in the OS in question, so. . .
How does one discover when the new AMD chipsets ( 790x series ) are supported,
to what degree they're supported,
and in which kernels?
I've tried grepping the entire 18.104.22.168 "make config" display
( ran script,
did make config because xconfig & gconfig & menuconfig didn't work,
held Enter down while scrolling through countless screens of m/y/n type answers,
grepped the typescript file )
and then the entire dang tree, itself, and haven't found any "amd.*790" anything. . .
grep -i "amd.*79" -r * \
| grep -v -i "amd.*7930\|am.*79c\|amd.*799"
( net drivers, sound? whatever, they weren't 790 anythings, anyways, nor any 79X or 79XX or other )
So, are they supported?
If so, in which kernels?
and to what degree?
I'd love to get a Barcelona mobo, and have it actually work, y'know?
