TOPIC: Kernel config

Kernel config 2 years 6 months ago #1557

Hey there,

I was wondering if there was a program to auto config the kernel settings. Not as in install everything but a... bare option with what your computer hardware can actually use.

For instance, say computer needs option a, b, c and yet doesn't need option d-g but can use h for kvm. Is there a program that can cross reference what your hardware specs are and optimize it for you I guess is what I am getting at that way you don't hhave unneccessary modules installed...

no there isnt a program to optimize your kernel, remember its gentoo!

but of course you can compile a new kernel without all the useless modules :)

Thanks for answering the question though I think that to bring gentto to a wider audience, it may help to create such a program. It may be "crazy for gentoo" But I mean, if the menuconfig gives you the same menu on all computers then you don't know what is actually for your computer and what's not. I mean maybe there could be some type of color coding to the options to say whether or not it is usable on the computer. I guess what I be saying is, make it easier to install the kernel for a newb to use it.
