Subject: [gentoo-user] bizzarre I2C kernel selection
Date: Mon, 25 Jul 2005 15:34:37

I've got a very weird problem. When I go to build either a 2.6.12-gentoo-r4
or 2.6.12-gentoo-r6 kernel on a paticular AMD athlon, I cannot change
the I2C selection:
 device driver -> I2C support 

It is a dash. Manually deleting the .config file does not help. 
I use 'make oldconfig on this machine' but I not certain
that is what locked  out this option.

I have an identical MB with a different video card, that does
not have this problem with the 2.4.12-gentoo-r4 kernel.

Maybe I should just delete the entire kernel dir, download
anew and build a new kernel? OK, so I did this and I still
get the same problem:

make menuconfig
Device Drivers -> I2C  support

    --- I2C support   
    <*>   I2C device interface      

I cannot select the I2C line i.e. it will not change to
<M> or <*>
Like this on the other identical MB: <*> I2C support  

I even tried to manually edit the .config file in /usr/src/linux
to correct the errant line to look like this:

but it always remains incorrect:
# Hardware Sensors Chip support
# CONFIG_I2C_SENSOR is not set
