Description Wayne Pascoe 2006-07-18 02:18:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Building custom kernels (e.g. for Xen) requires that you know your existing
kernel configuration. It would be useful to be able to get this information
without looking in the SRPM.

The kernel provides this functionality with CONFIG_IKCONFIG and
CONFIG_IKCONFIG_PROC, but these are not enabled under FC5.

This patch should be included in the kernel-2.6.spec file as patch 211 for
x86_64 systems.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC5

  
Actual results:
/proc/config.gz does not exist on default kernel

Expected results:
/proc/config.gz should exist and contain the config of the running kernel

Comment 2 Dan Carpenter 2006-07-18 04:36:59 EDT
The kernel config is already saved in /boot/config-`uname -r`.
