Capturing kernel customization to post on forum and wiki?

Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

How do I capture kernel customization flags, visualize them and post on line as it appears in the "kernel" snippet in this page:




In other words, I made some changes previously to say /usr/src/linux/.config. How do I show ONLY these changes via, say, "make menuconfig", and copy the text with markings?


I don't use Docker, so can't answer concerning it.


When you run "make menuconfig", when you save and close, it moves .config to .config.old. So just run:

diff /usr/src/linux/.config /usr/src/linux/.config.old

You can't show changes with menuconfig, and copy the text with markings (whatever markings are).
