How is the kernel configuration generated?

Postby Socke » Sun Apr 21, 2019 4:23 pm

Hey there,

is anywhere documented how the kernel configuration for linux-armv7 is generated? If not, can anyone maybe line out what the approximate steps to reproduce the .config file are?

Kind regards

You generate it within the nconfig when compiling. You can get the Arch defaults from the github PKGBUILDs repo or from zcat /proc/config.gz

I'm sorry, I think my question wasn't clear enough. I know where I can get the current configuration and how I can change it and generate a new package and so on. But I would like to know what was the (more or less) exact process that lead to this specific configuration file that currently is in the repo. So what configuration commands (e.g. make defconfig, etc.) do I have to type to get a similar working configuration?

Can anyone line out, what was done to obtain the current configuration?

https://archlinuxarm.org/packages/armv7h/linux-armv7/files/config

to change, download the package, change config, then us PKGBUILD
