Kernel 3.9.7 config request
 
Hi,

as still having troubles with newer kernels 3.9.9, 3.10.0 etc. (mostly related to wrong ACPI handling) I would like to downgrade to 3.9.7 which did worked very reliably.

As in Slackware64-current mirrors there is kernel 3.9.7 no more, I'm asking for a link to a repository not updated so frequently where it can be found or at least stock Slackware's config file for 3.9.7 kernel to build myself with the vanilla sources from kernel.org .

Can anybody help me ?

Thanks.

Installing the 3.9.10 config and reprocessing it with "make oldconfig" should work fine.

You can find the copies of the original packages here: http://butler.cc.tut.fi/~kaukasoi/sl...are64-current/

Than You Patrick, that did the trick. Just worried some missing/additional options would screw up the building process. It did worked without any quirks, possibly because the versions are very close to each other.

Btw. I would like to pay a homage to You and Your crew as well for keeping the finest Linux distribution I've ever met ! Great job !

Take care

Thanks, what a shame I did already compiled my kernel packages myself. It would really save a time :)
Even all gpg signatures do match. Nice ;)
