Hi,
In the log of the pulseaudio compilation i have:
A preallocated buffer-size of 2048 (kB) or higher is recommended for the HD-audio driver!
Checking the /usr/src/linux/.config file , I changed from 512 to 2048 as
recommended.
Device Drivers --->
<*> Sound card support --->
<*> Advanced Linux Sound Architecture --->
(2048) Pre-allocated buffer size for HD-audio driver

Question: To consolidate this change, can I just use the option
genkernel kernel or i have to use genkernel all ? This alteration affects just the kernel or modules and initrd too?

Thanks!

I usually do:
Code:
genkernel --menuconfig all
and do the modifications using the menu.

parramata,

genkernel uses its own .config file by default, so your change will be lost.
Code:
genkernel --menuconfig all
lets you make changes as genkernel runs.

genkernel makes a fully modular kernel and the modules are all included in the initrd, so only the kernel modules and the initrd are affected.
