Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247970
gconfig can not load config file properly
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem:
When I try load config from file (File->Load) utility just duplicates existing
tree. So I have two trees of duplicated settings. None of them are loaded
properly from specified file, they are the same. Example: in default config
wireless cards drivers are disabled. So I tried to load config from /boot
directory from config file that came with binary package of the kernel. But all
I've got is two sets of default (no wifi) options.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.
There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?
If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.
Yes, the problem still persists. 184.108.40.206 (6-rc1)
Please specify the following so that this bug can be reviewed further:
-The file you are trying to load (possibly attaching it to this bugzilla as well)
-The utility you are using to load it and its upstream URL (do you mean gconfig?)
-The wireless card you indicate does not work
-as an attachment, an output from lspci
This does not look like a kernel bug.

Kernel config file
Here's typical config file. To launch utility simply unpack kernel src.rpm,
apply some patches if you want, type 'make gconfig'.
My wifi adapter works if I manually enable it's driver in config. Anyway this
is not the problem we discuss here. The problem is in gconfig utility.
I cannot reproduce here. If you need help compiling your own kernel please
follow these guidelines:
You may find make xconfig a better option for you. You should not need to
re-compile a kernel to enable wireless drivers.

Just copy the file you want to use over the default .config file.
