Need kernel configuration help [Solved]

Postby ratcheer » Sun Jul 22, 2012 1:43

I just finished installing the Sabayon 9 weekly updates. I got a set of messages telling me that some kernel configuration options are set incorrectly. I know that I have never messed with them, but anyway, it is telling me that CONFIG_B43, CONFIG_SSB, and CONFIF_MAC80211 "should not be set. But it is."

[17:34:16 06/06/2012 UTC] INFO: [Package] [client] Unpacking package: packages-nonfree/amd64/5/net-wireles
s:broadcom-sta-5.100.82.112-r2#3.4.0-sabayon~0.tbz2
* Checking for suitable kernel configuration options...
* CONFIG_B43: should not be set. But it is.
* CONFIG_SSB: should not be set. But it is.
* CONFIG_MAC80211: should not be set. But it is.
* Please check to make sure these options are set correctly.
* Failure to do so may cause unexpected problems.



I researched and found someone else with the exact same problem on Gentoo in October, 2009. In the Gentoo forum, they told him to cd to /usr/src/linux, run "make menuconfig", find the modules, remove them, and then recompile the kernel.

Is this really necessary? I am willing to try it, but never having configured a kernel and compiled it, I need a more specific procedures. Or at least a pointer to some docs that give the procedures.

Thanks,
Tim

Ok, after more research, I believe the warnings can be ignored safely.
