finally after about 5 kenel compiles my kernel works without as many problems as my other atempts.
but now i cannot mount fat partitions, there is no sound and (as per as usual) the graphics look all crap.
i think it might have to do with the character set. at least for the fat partitions thing.
i scanned through the syslog and dmesg files for anything with no luck. there are no errors present in either files.
please help me
