Basic configuration check


Hello all,

This may seem like a stupid question to some, but how can I check if my kernel is build with this options:

CONFIG_NET_RADIO=y


Thanks

there is a file named .config in the top level of your kernel source directory, so do 'cat .config | grep CONFIG_NET_RADIO'

Another way to absolutely make sure because the .config in /boot/ or /usr/src/linux/ could have been reconfigured and not match your current kernel is to:

"cat /proc/config.gz | gzip -d | grep CONFIG_NET_RADIO"

Most kernels are built with the config.gz option, just for this purpose. If not go with what RomanG said.
