How can I find/generate a kernel .config file?
I am trying to find the .config file for my redhat 7.2 kernel. I have read the documentation and some threads here about where it should be and still can't seem to find it. The redhat customization guide said it should be in /usr/src/linux. I have no such dir I have /usr/src/redhat with subdirs BUILD RPMS SOURCES SPECS SRPMS and tarballs which ls -a shows all to be empty. This may be because I did an ftp install.
As far as generating a .config file I found this:
>After you install the kernel source from the installation cd, you run the >command make oldconfig. If you are using RedHat 7.2, this places the >RedHat default .config file in /usr/src/linux-<kernel version>
Which means I need an appropriate make file in the appropriate dir for the command to work. If someone would help me out here I would greatly appreciate it. I am new to Linux and kernel specifics but I have used unix for a few years.
Thanks in advance,
