Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

What error ? Something like "CONFIG_NET_RADIO is not set" ?
Then you need to compile the kernel with the above option set.
i also need firmware loading capabilities of hotplug.
what is the proper directory for firmware loading?
Sorry, don't know anything about that.
if not, should i just download the most recent source and recompile?
I think it's easier to recompile the current kernel (instead of the newest), so you don't run into possible configuration problems. Simply clone the kernel config (copy .config and make oldconfig) and change the parameters you need.
actually after my last post i decided to try to follow the directory tree listed, and saw that 126.96.36.199-3 was the "uname -r" directory, but then the entire naming scheme breaks down.... there is no .../build directory after that, let alone the other ones listed.
hmm, let me do some more sleuthing... wish i knew how to get "locate" working... lemme do a search on that first, lol... i need to write the db files for it.
cool, the command to write the locate and find db is: updatedb
now the locate command works
now back to the problem @ hand...
locate does not find an autoconf.h anywhere. i cannot grep for the NET_RADIO status unless i can locate it?
so if i were to recompile the kernel, i would need to place the drivers in the above mentioned directory?
i'm not sure why the directory structure is different. either the kernel i'm using, or yoper has made it different?
i just tried this to get the kernel source (i don't think i have it):
apt-get install kernel-source
and it reads package lists and dep tree fine, but then i get this message:
E: Couldn't find package kernel-source
do i need to refer to the package differently?
i just checked kernel.org for a version of the kernel i'm using to manually install it so i can get on with configuring this computer, and they only have 188.8.131.52 while yoper is using 184.108.40.206-3. is this the same? can i manually install sources from ..1 and have them work with ..1-3?
-maybe i should ask this last part at the general forum... not sure if this is the right place...
