I only have a minute or two today, so I’ll just mention that I found this perl script that supposedly presets the used modules in a kernel configuration, which I hope will be useful in arranging custom kernels between Debian and Crux.
I still have it in my mind that I want to convert this entire system to a Crux analogue, mostly because my settings and configurations are sometimes intended for still-fresher versions than what Debian testing offers. Part of that would include getting a kernel adjusted to this machine, and considering that Debian has had better luck than I with regard to some things (like the framebuffer), I am willing to take a cue.
A script that scans through the modules you have on board, then tweaks a configuration file for you, would be useful. I think that’s what this does, although as always, I might misunderstand. I promise a report, either way.
