    Kernel configuaration


    I plan on installing Mandrake 10.0 this weekend. I know from past experience that it won't enable ACPI by default in the kernel (no Linux distro ever has on this particular box), but it will work if I recompile the kernel with it enabled.

    My quesiton is, rather then install and instantly turn around to recompile my kernel so that that I can suspend, is there a way to make sure ACPI is configured into the kernel when I install it?

    Thanks!

    The kernel will be an image - if ACPI isn't in the kernel then it's not there - you'll have to recompile.

    How ACPI kernel modules?
