When I try to build a kernel I get a missing at_piix module error:

config file

Here's the file I use to build.  This file has the piix module set to be loaded
not built-in -- it also fails in that mode.
Comment 2 Darin May 2004-04-24 20:03:53 EDT
More info:

I didn't use the pre-built .config file, just ran make xconfig after a
make mrproper to generate the initial .config file.

I assume the new xconfig scripts attempt to reduce the compile time by
only deleting known, used devices.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-04-28 21:54:47 EDT
You need to include ata_piix, not piix as a module.  
Comment 4 Darin May 2004-04-28 22:30:43 EDT
Why didn't make xconfig do the right thing then?  it seems that there's a module/driver 
discovery problem when generating a .config file from scratch.

I did a "make mrproper" followed by a "make xconfig", saved the generated config and 
tried to compile.  I thought that the .config should be complete and not needing manual
