kernel reconfigure does'nt seem to affect the final kernel


hi...

I've tried to recompile my kernel several times now, but the changes I make does'nt happend...

this is a part of my kernel reconfiguration menu (this lines displayed here are the ones used by my kernel now...)
[*] Power Management support │ │
│ │ <*> Advanced Power Management BIOS support │ │
│ │ [ ] Ignore USER SUSPEND │ │
│ │ [ ] Enable PM at boot time │ │
│ │ [ ] Make CPU Idle calls when idle │ │
│ │ [ ] Enable console blanking using APM │ │
│ │ [ ] RTC stores time in GMT │ │
│ │ [ ] Allow interrupts during APM BIOS calls │ │
│ │[*] Use real mode APM BIOS call to power off

Should'nt this mean that wen you halt your system, the power should go off in the end? It worked (I'm not sure if the config-lines looked like this then...) on my slackware 8.1, with the same motherboard...

And anotherthing:
[*] TCP/IP networking │ │
│ │ [ ] IP: multicasting │ │
│ │[*] IP: advanced router │ │
│ │ [ ] IP: policy routing │ │
│ │ [ ] IP: equal cost multipath │ │
│ │ [ ] IP: use TOS value as routing key │ │
│ │ [ ] IP: verbose route monitoring │ │
│ │ [ ] IP: kernel level autoconfiguration │ │
│ │ <*> IP: tunneling │ │
│ │ <*> IP: GRE tunnels over IP │ │

Would'nt this mean that my conputer could act like a route? Well, it does'nt anyway...

help

The apm settings look good to me. How are you shutting down your computer? As root try /sbin/halt and see if that works. Also check your BIOS settings to see if that option is disabled.


As for the router you'll need to get a firewall script that sets up routing. Look at www.linuxguruz.com/iptables/

yeah, but the thing I want to know is, how can I be sure that the kernel I run now is the one I configured it to be?
