Hi all,

I have a fully functional working i3 system with Nvidia using OpenRC so far so good I’m
Happy.

The only thing I haven’t done manually is configure my kernel I used genkernel, I’m now thinking I’d like to build my own after what I feel is a slow boot time and lots of modules being loaded.

However looking though a config there seems to be hundreds of options, and I’m not sure what I need and don’t need, I’ve run lspci and had a look but can’t fathom what I should be focusing on or pulling out, I don’t have any unusual hardware more recent hardware.

Is there anything I can read / look at to help better understand or any pointers? I essentially don’t want to break my system after I’ve spent so long getting it right, I’m really liking it so far it’s been a challenge but I’m happy.

Thanks
