info about my drivers


I'd like to compile my kernel, using only the drivers that are needed for my system. Is there a way to find out, which drivers i am currently using? How?

already tried lspci?

It isn't exactly about drivers, but you can give it a shot!

/sbin/lsmod
will tell you what kernel modules are currently loaded. This information is not very readable, unfortunately.

I suggest that you find out exactly what hardware you have (processor, motherboard chipset, sound, network, etc) and then walk through
make xconfig
