compiling SCSI drivers into new kernel
« on: April 29, 2005, 11:51:37 AM »
I am trying to compile Kernel on Linux 2.1 AS server with 2.4.9-e.3 smp kernel.
To compile i am using make oldconfig to retrive config from existing original kernel.
But I could not find .config file in /usr/src/linux 2.4.9-e.3 folder.
is there any alternative config file name for this kernel config in Redhat 2.1 AS?

.config is the standard config file. It can sometimes be something else.

However, there is another place where u can find it. Take a look at /boot partition or directory.

Now find something having the name xxx.config.xxx.

Before using the configs, check the content of the config file whether it is the right one.
