Kernel config help with rh 8.0

I was wondering if it would be possible to get a copy of someones kernel config file. Because I'm updating my kernel from 2.4.18-14 to 2.4.20 and I don't know all of the options I should pick. I've tried a couple of times to do it my self but my sound, dvd/cdrw, and usb won't work. I've looked for the current config on my system but i can't find it. If you could send me your config, or tell me of a place I could get a config for my ze1250 it would really be a big help. I'm using red hat 8.0 if it matters.
Thanks,

The 2.4.20 kernel config I use for a ze4100 with ACPI and software suspend is at

along with patch details, etc.

Re: Kernel config help with rh 8.0

I'm having one problem with my kernel. when i boot it up, heres what it gives me.
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on none, or too many mounted file systems.
netfs: Mounting other filesystems: failed

this was pulled from my /var/log/boot.log

if you know what i should do it would be a great help. Other than that everything works, So thanks.

thanks,

Re: Kernel config help with rh 8.0

Looks like when it issued the 'mount -a' to mount all file-systems, something wasn't quite right.

Check your /etc/fstab to find out what mounts occur during boot-up (those lines without 'noauto' on them), and verify that the FS-Type (3rd column) is correct for the file system (first column).

You might have some lines that start with 'LABEL=', these point to an efs2 label marker. You'll need to use the 'e2label' program to find out which filesystems these actually point too.

Re: Kernel config help with rh 8.0

Jeremy,

Stuart definitely has the right idea. In addition, you might want to run make xconfig in your kernel source directory, and look at what filesystems are enabled. I tend to be a bit conservative about what filesystems I enable on a notebook. Since you got the original config from me, it's quite possible that a filesystem you need isn't currently enabled in the config.

Re: Kernel config help with rh 8.0

hi,
easiest way is to check /proc/filesytems. if the file system you are talking is listed there, then the support is there. else, you may need to recompile your kernel.
