Hi, Joel, everybody...

Sorry, I haven't any experience with automount (but in cvs for 2.4.22
Willy added automount and smb into debian-configs (located into
arch/parisc) so I think it should work)
Anabout the config stuff: I think that starting witk a working
configuration and add the stuff I need (automount, samba) would be nice.
That would be the most logical way :)
Is there any way to start menuconfig with a "stock" configuration to
Yes: with debian when you install a kernel it's config file is located
near the kernel, ie in /boot you have to find vmlinux-2.4.18-32,
System.map-2.4.18-32 and the corresponding config-2.4.18-32. So copy
this config file into your src tree as .config. Now you could use make
menuconfig to customize your kernel.
To build this kernel, the tips is 'make vmlinux'; followed by classical
'make modules' if you use modules support and 'make modules_install'.
When the kernel is build, you just have to put vmlinux and System.map
into your /boot (may be a seperate fs) as for instance vmlinux-2.4.18-t1
and System.map-2.4.18-t1, so that when you reboot (interupt the autoboot
with [Esc]) you will want to interact with IPL (actualy palo) and just
change the name of the kernel you want to boot with vmlinux-2.4.18-t1
(so that if it failed you can always easily with you working kernel ;) )
And about optimization, any hints (my machine is a C110 120 MHz with
4GB hard disk, 128MB of RAM and one PA7200 CPU)
:) I just recover a similar c110 (but the graphic card: HPA208LC1024
just support 8bits depth :( ) and it takes about 1h15min to build a new
That say, I never pay attention to such optimisation but into 'Processor
type' you can effectively select PA7200 support. (it would be
interesting to compare results?)
Well, this will be a first-time newbie kernel compilation, so *all*
help will be really welcome :-)
