Hi!

http://cateee.net/autokernconf/

Does anybody here has dealt with this tool for sometime? Its good?

A long time ago, with my first experiences with linux I've asked for such tool, I'm glad that existed people trying to solve it, but I see that this project didn't get much attention... I may be wrong but...

Well, if you people for some reasons don't use this tool, what tool you people use to configure your kernel? :)

Don't tell me to manually config it, I already do it for a long time! :]

gtuxed,

That its not been touched since 2007 shows its badly broken now. Many things have changed in the kernel over the last three years.

Follow the instructions at www.kernel-seeds.org

Doesn't "make localmodconfig" do exactly the same thing as this?

Well, I'm not talking about static/pre-made configuration.

I'm talking about guessing, detecting dynamically which hardware you have and which kernel code should be compiled.

localmodconfig - Update current config disabling modules not loaded

localmodconfig just disable modules not loaded, It doesn't inspect the kernel messages or probe to verify something.

Test yourself I think is better to known what this tool does.

I tested here and saw that its quite good, the accuracy was 80% of my hardware, and optimized (no unecessary modules/code added).

Considering that its dated in 2007 and "one man", its really quite good.
