i'm having this problem where i can't possibly get my configs to reset, and by that i mean i tried running make defconfig, i tried deleting the .config file, and i even tried unmerging then emerging the sources again... but my options don't reset, why i need to do this? i have one of those new model creative SB cards, and i've made them work once, that one time i made it work i did not mess with the default sound driver options, i must have messed them up this install so, i need to reset it, and just edit all my options in again leaving the sound options untouched hoping it'll work, after that i can just edit out some individual things that i don't want to have in there.

but right now i need the default configuration. how do i get it back?

rabcor,

Delete the .config file in the kernel tree.

Sounds like you just want to reset the sound card options:
Code:
mv .config .config.old
grep -v CONFIG_SND .config.old > .config
make oldconfig

Kernel tree? meaning /usr/src/linux ? i already deleted that, it didn't work,
and also my oldconfig was set to my current config somehow...

anyhow case solved. i gave up on this and just reinstalled the whole thing and now i have my original settings backed up, but thanks for your input. sorry for a late reply but... this thread was locked and put away somewhere last time i checked.
