Suse 9 and Kernel 2.6.1 - Copy the.config file?
I'm running Suse 9 and have been trying to get the 2.6.1 kernel up and running on my system.
The first time I compiled it, I set up the .config file myself. It came right up, but my network card wasn't detected. (It's PCMCIA-based. I'm running on a laptop.) The 2.6.0-test5 kernel included with my distribution detected my cards just fine, but wouldn't detect my touchpad. Figuring I could get the touchpad working myself, I copied Suse's .config file for the 2.6.0-test5 kernel into my 2.6.1 sources and compiled without any changes. This resulted in my system freezing after I selected the new kernel in GRUB.
So my question is: Am I missing something? Why didn't copying the .config file over from 2.6.0 work with 2.6.1?
