i have already built a kernel for my computer but i still have a few question:
what module should be compiled as module and what should be compiled into the kernel?
they have any benefit over each other (for modules i guess you can unload them if they cause problems, but compiling into the kernel makes it faster?)
assuming i am building it for my notebook and the only think that is added often is usb memory sticks, should i compile everything into the kernel?
another question i have is that on my first compilation i didnt include support for scsi driver because i have ata hdd in my notebook, but then the kernel failed to load, so after recopiling it with scsi driver support enabled, it booted perfectly.
another stratnge thing was that with this build, at boot, the dm_mod module (guess its the device manager) fails to lead.
why could be that?
