    Is there an easy way for me to find out if a specific option is enabled in my kernel? For instance, I need to know if the option PF_KEY sockets is enabled in my kernel. How can I easily find out?

    If you have compiled a kernel from scratch, and you still have the source tree where you compiled from, the file .config will tell you. Also, it might have gotten copied to boot as the file
    Code:
    /boot/config-2.6.x-y
