Dingux kernels - modules support?
« on: April 28, 2010, 03:58:44 pm »
I'm playing around with making a custom kernel, and I'm wondering, for some drivers that I would only need on occasion, is it worth it to compile them as a module and get module support set up?

Or would it be better just to compile them into the kernel, then maybe have two kernel versions, a 'normal' one, and one with the rarely-used stuff that I could boot as needed?

Thanks!

kernel modules is better imo or at least add the support for it in and let the rest be in the kernel, when i played with custom kernels i couldn't let the modules build though, always errored at some point so i didn't bother looking at it and just added it in the kernel itself

Ah ok, thanks!

I just realized that the various modules commands (modprobe, lsmod, etc) aren't in the filesystem so I'll need to add that as well, assuming I manage to get the modules to compile. I did build module support into the kernel but for now I just put everything right into the kernel.

Cheers!
