Description ct7 1999-05-25 20:39:24 UTC
I've installed RedHat 6.0 on a workstation that dual-boots
NT, and it works fine with one exception -- the NTFS module
wasn't compiled.  I don't have a problem compiling a new
kernel, but I would prefer to start with the same kernel
config file that the default kernel was compiled with --
then all I'd need to do would be to add in NTFS and go,
instead of trying to guess which options were enabled.

I checked all of the shipped kernel modules (binary &
source) and didn't find the .config file.  Could someone
point me at where I could get a copy?  Thanks.

Red Hat kernels are compiled with all default answers. Look at
/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/defconfig (assuming i386).

You might also installing the kernel.src.rpm, making your change,
and then rebuilding using rpm.
