Subjectinstallation of latest kernel on compaq notebook
Hi ,
This is what is existing configuration

installed Redhat Linux 7.1
Everything is fine except the usb to ethernet (SmartNic2
) does not work although it is shown in the /proc/usb/devices

This is what i tried
downloaded latest kernel 2.5.29
Installed kernel on linux laptop
I am not very sure of what needs to be configured in the
When i tried "make xconfig" there is some error and x windows
does not start
i did manual configuration and able to compile the new kernel
and boot on to it
After boot on new kernel
Now even the usb mouse is not recognized, Xwindows which is
working previously with kernel 2.4.x does not work.

Now what i want to know is
What i need to select in kernel configurations so that it
supports my model with all basic features?
Why there is always an error in prevois versions of my kernel
as well ('Error in line 5 in /etc/sysconfig/mouse') I comment
