Code:
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make menuconfig
Bus options-->PCI Hotplug Support
I'm just curious. I hadn't thought of setting my Latitude up to hotswap until you started this thread, so I haven't been intentionally keeping secrets from you.

Just catch-penny horseplay.

May be misunderstanding. The directory /usr/src is empty - no 'linux' in it. If talking compiling a custom kernel, I havn't done that: just using the standard kernel that comes with Debian Sarge, 2.4.27-2-386.

You don't have your sources installed, fair enough. In the 2.6 kernel, you can check your .config with
Code:
man /proc/config.gz
I don't know if the 2.4 kernel has the option to check your .config in the same way, nor do I know if it has a hotswapping option. If it does have hotswapping, I would presume the vanilla kernel would have it enabled.

man /proc/config.gz didn't work. Vaughly grepped /proc/ - nothing about hotswap, bit about hotplug.

Bit OT perhaps but I might try trying to use 2.6 kernel out of interest.
