That should be enough, but you should start from the GENERIC config file, not the LINT config file. As it says at the top of LINT: # NB: You probably don't want to try running a kernel built from this # file. Instead, you should start from GENERIC, and add options from # this file as required. > Also if there is someone with a similar system who could send me a > copy of a successful kernel conf file I would be most grateful You've pretty much defined it.
