where should i look for "CONFIG_SERIAL_CORE" in "make xconfig"


hello all,
few days back i got new internet connection through ADSL modem.
now i'm trying to configure it.
.....
downloaded the drivers....but when i was installling them, i got the following error
.................................................................................................... .....................
the kernel at /lib/modules/2.4.26/build was compiled without the following option enabled: CONFIG_SERIAL_CORE. this option is needed for Driver Loader. Please enable this kernel option, re-compile the kernel and try again.
.................................................................................................... ......................

#make xconfig

but where should i look up for "CONFIG_SERIAL_CORE" ???
( i'm searching it for last 1 hour ).

anyone knowing the location can save my lot of time.

regards

Under Character Devices ---> Serial

However, this is on a 2.6.x kernel, so it likely will be slightly different.

Cool

thnx for replying...
but as i stated i'm on 2.4.26 ( slackware 10.0 ).
last week i was trying to upgrade it to 2.6.x but faced some problem ( thats a different story...i'll upgrade it soon )

but what should i do with 2.4.x ???

for time being i'm switching to fedora core 2 ( i've this too on my system )
hopefully will get solution for 2.4.x too.

I just found it on mine yesterday so I could build hsfmodem. I use make menuconfig with a 2.4.29 kernel but it should be similar enough. It was under Character Devices->Standard/Generic (8250/16550) UART. If that's the only thing you're adding you might consider adding it as a module so you only have to reinstall modules and not recompile the entire kernel, Then cp the new System.map to /boot.

Maybe it's looking for a module, instead of 'y' go for 'm'.

Cool
