I just built a kernel suitable for an ISA 486 box by copying
conf/GENERIC, commenting-out all the pcmcia, eisa and pci drivers,
and compiling it in the usual way. (I was motivated to do this
because I had to tweak the settings for the le0 driver to get this
to work with a slighty strange PCnet-32 design on an old Canon
The kernel I ended up with worked great but was missing the PCVT
screensaver function. I thought that was odd because it's in the
GENERIC driver as installed from the CD. I got the screensaver
back by adding "option PCVT_SCREENSAVER" to my config file and
My question is: isn't "GENERIC" intended to build you a kernel like
what's on the CD?
