Hi all,

I'm using genkernal to configure, compile and distribute my kernel. Like this:

Code:

genkernel --kernel-config='/root/config/kernel/3.2.12-gentoo-2012-04-27' 'all'


For new versions I'm using the --oldconfig option and for recompilation --mrproper.

I just need one network card driver: CONFIG_JME=y

But everytime I create a new kernel I get all the available network card drivers. Has anybody an idea where that happen and how it can be switched off?

Thanks,
Ray

/etc/genkernel.conf
Code:

OLDCONFIG="no"
MENUCONFIG="yes"
CLEAN="no"
MRPROPER="no"
MOUNTBOOT="yes"
SAVE_CONFIG="yes"
USECOLOR="yes"
LVM="yes"
DISKLABEL="yes"
SPLASH="no"
GK_SHARE="${GK_SHARE:-/usr/share/genkernel}"
CACHE_DIR="/var/cache/genkernel"
DISTDIR="${CACHE_DIR}/src"
LOGFILE="/var/log/genkernel.log"
LOGLEVEL=1
DEFAULT_KERNEL_SOURCE="/usr/src/linux"

Please state what kernel versions you are using where you get all drivers, what version(s) of the configuration you upgraded from, and whether a clean config created from nothing has this problem. Quite a while back, the layout of the network driver menu was changed. Upgrading across that boundary caused the same result for me, but it is easy to fix in menuconfig.

remember than --no-clean implies --no-mrproper so if you have set
/etc/genkernel.conf:
CLEAN="no"
you need --clean too.

Hi all,

I had the problem when I upgraded to 3.5.7, 3.8.13, 3.10.7 and 3.10.17.

I always used the configuration from the previous version and run genkernal --oldconfig.

@Hu: I never tried to compile a kernel with a clean config. It doesn't make sense in my opinion, does it?

I thought the --oldconfig always activates the drivers. But why?

Regards,
Reto
