is there a basic tool one could use to customize a kernel to a specific hardware. Much like sndconfig for sound or xfree86 for X. Ya know what i mean. I would like to strip it of crap I dont need sh*t like pcmcia support if I dont have a laptop or scsi if I dont have that. I think I saw something like that in freebsd, when you begin the install, but it seemed limited. Can anyone help, perhaps a how-to
Dowload the source then run make menuconfig.
Thats the kernelsource, where you can find at http://www.kernel.org.
