finding current kernel config?
I'd like to have a go at compiling my first kernel. I'v been doing a lot of reading to understand the kernel config options, but I'd like to know what the current config is as a basis of comparison (or safety net).

My dist is debian and the kernel source was not installed, so there is no /usr/src/linux/.config or anything else lingering in /usr/src/

I can't find it in the /var/log/install.log

Can anybody tell me how I can get hold of it? Is placed somewhere else? Is there a way of "extracting" it from the running kernel perhaps?

Many thanks, reetep.

In Slackware, the current kernel config is in /boot
the is also there as well as.........vmlinuz<------your kernel.

thank you very much, I found it where you suggested (in /boot).

Sorry for being so thick as to not think of looking in such an obvious place!
