Question


Hey, just wondering how can I disable plug n play in Linux.

A friend at work told me something like "make menuconfig", but that doesn't work.

Anybody?

Thanks in advance,
jwilson

Sorry, I'm using RedHat Version 7.0, Kernel 2.4 and have been using the GNOME xwindows.

Well, to compile a kernel you have to go to the directory where it's source code is stored. Probably /usr/src/linux
There you have to run make menuconfig to configure you new kernel. It's an easy menu system, toy around a little. To learn how to compile it and things, read the kernel-howto:
http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO.html
But maybe RedHat uses isapnp at boot-time. Look in the /etc/rc.d/rc.x (where x is S,1,2,3,4,5) directories if there are links with the word pnp in them (i don't use RedHat so i don't know their names). and remove those links. Good luck!
