View Full Version : [ubuntu] Compile Kernel With UINPUT

April 23rd, 2008, 11:59 AM

I've had to compile a new Kernel to get sound working on my PowerPC for hardy but once I do so I get an error loading that insists that I compile the kernel with CONFIG_INPUT_UINPUT. I'm compiling the kernel from http://www.kernel.org - version 2.6.25, and this does not appear to have the option for this.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I just did a
cat /boot/config-2.6.22-14-generic | grep UINPUT
#and got this:
CONFIG_INPUT_UINPUT=m. You can do the same to check whether the option exists in the config file you are using (note that your kernel version will be different as I am using Gutsy).

No sorry I don't get anything for that on my compilled kernel but I knew this as I had done the same with my .config file when I was compiling. What I want to know it how to enable this on a kernel from the link above.
