Slackware kernel configuration


I fee lkinda dumb asking this since i've been playing hard with slackware since 95, oh well.. if this has been asked and answered im sorry i repeated the question =]

Anyways, 2.4.22 is out, and right now im sporting slack 9 default kernel config, i.e the slackpack version, and i know that you can save kernelconfig's for later use, and what i want to ask is : Does the one they ued to compile slack 9 kernel with come in the package ? If so, what's it's name, and where is it ? The thing is that im very happy with the default settings, and i dont need more, nor do i need less, so it'd save alot of time for me if there was a pre-made config...

mad cudos to whoever answers my little query =]

If I understood correctly you want to find your default kernel .config file and use it for updated kernel????
I think it is in /boot and it is called config-ide-2.4.20, or whatever kernel you used.
Just copy it to /usr/src/linux, rename it to .config and do make oldconfig with updated kernel source.

mm, no, mrproper will delete .config, so you type make mrproper, then copy /boot/config-ide...whatever to /usr/src/linux, rename it to .config and do make oldconfig

First you patch your kernel source to the latest version of course.
2.4.22

after you copy the config file over to /usr/src/linux/.config then do a:

make oldconfig

This will only prompt you to address the things that have been changed (like new drivers)
