Greetings, I compiled a kernel from a standard 5.1-RELEASE installation yestreen to include support for ext2fs, but couldn't find any documentation about what option to set to include support for ext2fs. Grepping the handbook and all files in the .../i386/conf directory did not reveal any references to ext2fs at all. I eventually got around it by modifying the Makefile in the modules directory and successfully compiled a kernel with ext2fs support.
As the kernel is for my gateway machine at home I temporarily don't have Internet access there, so I did a quick search at work this morning and found a reference to adding "options EXT2FS" to the config file - probably the more canonical way of setting options. My first question is: what documentation is there on the available kernel options? My second question (coming from a different open source UNIX-like operating system background) is: how does one specify to compile a 5.1 feature as a module as opposed to directly into the kernel, or are all module-capable features automatically compiled as modules? tia Dave _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
