On Red Hat Enterprise Server 3.0 I need to re-compile the kernel to
support a bttv-based capture card (for use in webcasting).
When I import the appropriate configuration file from
/boot/config-2.4.21-4.0.1.ELsmp I find that a lot more modules are
enabled than are present with the binary kernel I am currently using.
If it was just a matter of just waiting for the whole lot to compile I
wouldn't mind so much but the thing just doesn't compile. It barfs at
the point indicated below.
De-selecting modules until it compiles is time consuming. Starting
from zero and only selecting the modules ...
