Post#1 by burdi01 » 18 Aug 2013, 15:47

Newbie to Porteus: Where can I find the actual kernel config - there is no /proc/config.gz ...
:D

Maybe these thread contain the response:

If not just be patient, someone more knowledgeable might come in. :)

If you have downloaded the 05-devel.xzm module then you can find the config at: /usr/src/linux-3.9.11/.config

You can extract config like this: modprobe configs && zcat /proc/config.gz > .config

Thanks!
I could have sworn that after reading the documentation I checked /usr/src and found nothing ... I had some initial problems with activating modules, maybe 05-devel.xzm was not loaded then.
Also, for quite some years I compile my own kernels, and it never occurred to me that CONFIG_IKCONFIG could also be a module ...
:D
