Subject: [gentoo-dev] auto creation of .config?
Date: Mon, 17 Mar 2003 20:42:47
1 Does anyone think it would be possible to create at least an initial kernel
2 .config based on dmesg output?
4 My train of thought is for gentoo installation and initial emerge of linux
5 sources. If gentoo could check the dmesg output for what failed to load (when
6 the system is booted from the rc3 install CD for example) and see what
7 succeded then output a .config into the /usr/src/linux directory it would go
8 along with Gentoo's ultra coolness factor. :)
10 If something like that is possble and not sci-fi I would say it belongs in the
11 ebuild script of gentoo-sources (and/or possibly all source scripts) and
12 invoked ONLY during the initial install of course.
14 Far fetched? No way? Or should I pose it as an enhancement on
16 Anyone?
18 Thanks,
19 Robert
