I'm trying to do a custom Xen kernel build of Fedora core 3 that
install VLAN support.
I've grabbed the kernel config files from the source rpm for the
Fedora 3 kernel, and renaming the appropriate one " *i686-smp* "
to .config, have done a make ARCH=xen oldconfig.
The problem is that only a few of the fedora core 3 config settings
are used, and I end up guessing on the remaining values. Not only
does this take forever, but I'd like to get the config as close as
possible to the original Fedora Core 3 one, and this approach isn't
likely to do that.
Besides installing the Fedora Core 4 test version of the kernel (and
taking on any unknown incompatibilities), do anyone have any advice
on doing an efficient make oldconfig on a Fedora Core 3 kernel?
