2 Quik Kernel Build Questions


Should I create modules or build device support into kernel?
Also should I just use 2.6 source and then add patches to build kernel? Or just download 2.6.14.5 and build with it?

It really depends on the hardware and the file systems HAS to be built in. What hardware do you have??

I used the 2.6.14.4 source with no problems....for some reason, 2.6.14.5 gave me problems with the same exact .config I used for 2.6.14.5.....go figure.
