Projects / proconfig


proconfig is a Linux kernel patch which lists the running kernel's compilation options in /proc/config. This makes kernel image administration easy if you compile a lot of kernels or admin a lot of machines. The code is compiled as a kernel module by default. The patch integrates with the kernel Makefiles, so it shows up conveniently under make menuconfig and friends.

    Release Notes: The patch has been brought up to date for kernel 2.4.19. The code has also been simplified, and string prefix-compression has now replaced the string crc-keying scheme in the internals. Slightly more memory is used, but it results in one simple kernel y/n/m option, which users prefer.
