I'm insterested I'm peoples opinions regarding what to build in to the kernel
and what to make into modules
I'm running RedHat 7.1 on a Celeron 533, 640MB ram, 44x IDE CDROM, 2x write/
8x read IDE CDR, with two 4.3 SCSI HDDs, HP SureStor T4 SCSI tape, S3 virge
agp video, realtek 8139 nic, Ensonique 1371 sound, Plustek OP600p scanner.
what do you do and why?
What the other guys said, but I'd like to add that I prefer to compile
the sound drivers as modules , though you must compile the kernel with
sound support. This way you can play with the module options more
easily, e.g. to get a joystick working.
Also you can swap between OSS/ALSA.
