Does anybody know where the defconfig for RH7.1 is? I know that RH does not put i in the usual /usr/src/linux directory. I did a search but the only defconfig I could find is from the current kernel...I dont think I deleted it..

If you are going to take a config from an old kernel, and then use it with a newwer source tree you should use make oldconfig. It is designed to only configure new features, and options that have changed in the current kernel tree. That is why make oldconfig exists. --Matt
