Subject[ANNONCE] Kernel Autoconfiguration utility v.

I just release a new verion of kernel autoconfig.
The kernel autoconfiguration utility will help user to detect and
configure the kernel. The detection is soft, thus no hangs!

It is still in test phase, thus now it prints only the proposed
configuration. To change real configurations, I'm still waiting for
a working CML2.

On my hardware database there are:

1007 pci cards
111 devices (block and char)
37 file systems
7 console drivers
8 net protocols
511 resources strings.

+ some extra special detection.

Project homepage:

How to use: (now, testing phase)
unpack the files (better: in a new directory)
> bash | less
check the output.
no super user privileges required!

I need some help:
- Some drivers detect pci in a strange way, I could not check every
Please check if your cards are included.
- Check, add extra detections

I will do:
- updates to the database when a new official kernel version is released
- interface with CML2 (partially done, but CML2-9.0.1 has still bugs)
- better 'CONFIG_*=N' handling (e.g. I will check is a drivers depends
on PCI. If this PCI card is not found, I can safely tell you that the
device is not in the box).
- generate inverse dependences.



PS. I have done the autodetection reading the source and not using
real hardware, thus ... no warranty.

PPS: This tools is designed mainly for newbies (in kernel compiling...),
thus I don't expect to have a real autodetection on very special
machines. [But I expect in the future to do this :-) ]
