Guys, I'm pretty new to this game.. so here's what I'm trying todo..I have a stock standard RH9 (Shrike running 2.4.20-8) and I'd likeCrypto API support included (which is not the case with out-of-box installation). - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

This is what I do: make mrproper make clean make xconfig - here I leave it exactly as it is - I only enable Crypto API and supprot for loopback devices - everything else stays as it is. make dep make modules make modules_install make install Now, this appears to be working (i.e. no compilation errors are reported) however, if I go to /lib/modules and compare a number of files in 2.4.20-8 as opposed to 2.4.20-8custom - 2.4.20-8custom hardly has any modules built whereas 2.4.20-8 has heaps of modules (~1000+ files in total) - needless to say the new kernel ...

    Default Guys, I'm pretty new to this game.. so here's what I'm trying todo..I have a stock standard RH9 (Shrike running 2.4.20-8) and I'd likeCrypto API support included (which is not the case with out-of-box installation).

    This is what I do:

    make mrproper
    make clean
    make xconfig - here
    I leave it exactly as it is - I only enable Crypto API and supprot for loopback
    devices - everything else stays as it is.

    make dep
    make modules

    make modules_install
    make install

    Now, this appears to be working
    (i.e. no compilation errors are reported) however, if I go to /lib/modules
    and compare a number of files in 2.4.20-8 as opposed to 2.4.20-8custom -
    2.4.20-8custom hardly has any modules built whereas 2.4.20-8 has heaps of
    modules (~1000+ files in total) - needless to say the new kernel is a total
    mess as it cannot find any of the needed modules during boot process.


    Is there a way of loading .config that was used to build RH9 as it is distributed,
    because my approach does not do that.

    The only thing I'm after is to
    recompile it exactly as it is out-of-the-box + crypto API + loopback device
    support, nothing else.

    Copy the original config file for your new kernel from /boot.

    Delete the lines that kept the features you want from being added.

    Then make sure that it is the only .config file in your source directory
    and run

    make oldconfig

    Everything will zip by, except for the choices related to your deletions.

    Otherwise it looks good.

    To make sure you are deleting the right lines (and don't do anything else but
    a simple deletion of whole lines) read up on the subject in
    "source"/Doentation/Configure.help.

    Thanks very much - I knew that there'd be a way to do it easily..

    Just FYI.
    Not all distro's place a copy of the .config in /boot
