Most of the drivers for Linux are included in the kernel or are modules that you compile as a module. The only things ive had to compile outside of the kernel is a driver for my wireless card and sound as the current alsa is the only one that supports my intel HD card correctly.

LFS thus Linux From Scratch just builds a framework that you build upon so most of the more complicated drivers such as wireless and stuff you pretty much have to figure out on your own or read the BLFS book to get a direction to go in.

HSF connexant drivers installed

Hi,

Just to mention that if you previously have installed the Linuxant modem drivers (HSF connexant) there's no need to reinstal ALSA. Within the console just type:

hsfconfig

use the old settings, reboot the system and you'll have sound. I had the same sound problem when upgrading the kernel, so this fix works.

Cheers,
ArtKill

Yeah when I update my kernel I don't recompile the drivers I just run make install again where I downloaded the driver for alsa. Of course I did not remove the folder where I built the drivers.
