Kernel Config File Questions
If I were to have a 2.6.7 kernel running well under slackware, would I be able to take the working .config file, and transfer it to a Debian machine and use that as my config file? If I can, what are the chances of it working on one machine and not the other, assuming all hardware in the machines is identical, or that they are the same machine. Also, I have heard Debian kernels have some sort of "patches". What does that mean? Does that mean that if I get a vanilla kernel and build it from source, I have to patch it?
