Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 199230
It would be useful to be able to get the running kernel config without looking in the source RPM
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:38 EST
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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
/proc/config.gz does not exist on default kernel
/proc/config.gz should exist and contain the config of the running kernel
Created attachment 132586 [details]
Patch to add /proc/config.gz to kernel config
The kernel config is already saved in /boot/config-`uname -r`.
