Thread: Is there a way?

    Is there a way?

    When you upgrade/recompile your kernel is there a way to check what was included in your previous kernel.

    For instance the new CDRW is ready to go in and I have Redhat 7.2 (installed from the cheap bytes) There was no manual intervention on my part when the kernel compiled during install so I do not know if I have support enabled for the CDRW or not?

    More importantly I don't want to screw up and not include something that was included previously.

    Okay thats it anyone else have a great xmas?

    have a look at the .config file that's in ur old kernel tree
    the entire kernel configuration is in that file

    if you install the kernel-source for your current kernel, then:

    #cd /usr/src/linux-2.4/configs

    And pick whatever config your system was build with..
