How to list drivers compiled into the kernel?


Dear All,

How can I get a list of all the drivers compiled into the kernel?

Modules are easy enough: To find the modules in use there's the command line "lsmod", and to find all module binaries on the system, whether in use or not, I just neeed to find all files ending in ".ko", so for instance the radeon driver will be radeon.ko. But I don't have the same kind of oversight when drivers are compiled directly into the kernel.

I can guess sometimes, but guessing is error prone and wastes time and often doesn't lead to the answer. Like Holmes I'd rather never guess!

Regards, Max

You will need to modify the kernel $PATH and version number.
Code:
cat /usr/src/linux-2.4.32/.config | grep -i =Y
