CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE=y CONFIG_VT=y CONFIG_VT_CONSOLE=y
You probably need:
CONFIG_INPUT=y CONFIG_INPUT_KEYBOARD=y CONFIG_KEYBOARD_ATKBD=y CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSE=y CONFIG_MOUSE_PS2=y
You need the current module-init-tools version (0.9.13 or higher non "pre" version). You probably have just the old modutils. module-init-tools are a backward compatible update.
You may have too old modutils version too, I recommend >= 2.4.21.
For the location of the files look at: kernel_2.6_howto.html
To test your module-init-tools version type:
If it answers 2.4.* you have just modutils of that version. If it says 0.9.* you have modutils + module-init-tools.
Well you need to turn on preemption: CONFIG_PREEMPT=y
Maybe you have reiserfs? Try to mount it with
mount -o remount,nolargeio=1 /dev/hda1 /
or alternatively, in fstab:
/dev/hda1 / reiserfs defaults,nolargeio=1 1 1
(above is untested, I have not rebooted yet ;-)
They want you to use ALSA. Get to know the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture here: http://www.alsa-project.org/
Somehow people seem to have to turn up the volumes differently from OSS. So you may have to play around and/or save your settings with aumix.
In /etc/fstab add:
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
Then search for proc in your startup scripts and add a similar line for sysfs. Somewhere you should then have something like: 'mount -t sysfs /sys /sys'
I have 3 USB controllers. 2 USB 1.1 and one USB 2.0. When I boot just the USB 2.0 controller gets initialized. I have to 'modprobe uhci_hcd' by hand. (I recommend to use just modules for USB/IEEE1394)
You need an additional module for you hardware. e.g. for athlon-k7 its: amd_k7_agp
Replace all occurrences of '/proc/ksyms' with '/proc/kallsyms' in 'vmware-config.pl'. And install the vmware-any-any-update from: http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/ Then run: 'vmware-config.pl'
Booting with "noapic" "acpi=off" may help. This may also help with other hardware problems.
