Kernal Question

How do you compile you your kernal? My sound will not work, when trying to run something that requires sound, It says you have not compiled your kernal for sound support.

okee dokee...from start to finish for Slack....

cd /usr/src/linux
make mrproper
make menuconfig
make dep
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
make bzlilo (optional but nice for a newbie compiler)

Make sure you read the help files on the options in the menuconfig. There are a few strings attached to things.
