help congiureing kernel 2.4.22


hi.

there are a few problems with my kernel configureationthat i cant work out,,,

some seem eayer than others.

1) /sbin/shutdown -h now
goes through the usual stages, then when it normally says power down and shuts down, i does not, its stays on

2) i seems to have compiled a sm[sumthing]
hsfconfig says the kernel is 2.4.22-smp (or sm .. somthing cant remember have to boot to find out) for my modem driver to work, i need the plain 2.4.22

3) i seem to have missed iptables...
insmod iptables does not work.
iptbales command is there, but cannot locate module.

4) ipconntract and ftp connection track are not supported.

i use make xconfig to configure the kernel.
could som1 point out where i chould be looking
to correct the above settings.. or anything i have missed out ?

also, som1 said somthing about needing to enable stupid mode for ppp (i use a internal pci modem)

thankyou.

You've missed a few kernel options:

* ACPI or APM for the power management.
* The Netfilter secion for iptables. Create everything as module there.

APM is an older system. I'd stick with ACPI

as far as I know, older systems use APM, newer systems also support ACPI.

For example, the Windows XP hybernate function is an ACPI state (currently not supported by Linux), see http://acpi.sourceforge.net/documentation/sleep.html

SMP is Symmetric Multi-Processing. If you don't have a mult-processor box you don't need this. On the other hand, if the kernel includes SMP, and you don't have an SMP box, it doesn't matter.

The only time it matters is if you have an SMP box, but don't enable SMP in the kernel!
