The way I got started with kernel compiling (after a number of failed attempts) was to take the .config file used to configure the 2.6.x kernel released by PV for -current and then start modifying that. The current 2.6.xkernel version for slackware is linux-22.214.171.124
and the current .config is here.
I'm using 2.6.17.x compiled from source using a config that I've tweaked to perfection. I also have a small server (about to retire) running Slack 9.1 with a 2.4.32 just cause it doesn't need anything more.
I'm using 126.96.36.199 because I could not get tvout to function at all with 2.4.x, and because that appeared to be the most recent 2.6 version available at the time. I expect I'll try to stay somewhat current now that I have a clue about kernel compiles, but I'm not overly concerned about being absolutely current.
