14. Appendix D - Post Kernel Building

After successfully building and booting the Linux kernel, you may be required to do these additional steps to make some of the devices to work with Linux. (The steps below were tested on Redhat Linux but should work with other distributions as well.)

Video card/Monitor configuration:

If you are using latest version of Linux (2.4 or later) and inside KDE/GNOME desktop click on Start->"System Settings"->Display.

For older versions of Linux follow the steps below:

You can configure the Video card and monitor by using these commands:


bash$ su - root
bash# man Xconfigurator
bash# /usr/bin/X11/Xconfigurator --help
bash# /usr/bin/X11/Xconfigurator 
bash# /usr/bin/X11/Xconfigurator --expert

See also:
bash# man xf86config
bash# /usr/bin/X11/xf86config

If your card is not detected automatically, then you can use the --expert option and select the "Unlisted card". If your monitor is not listed then select the generic monitor type SVGA 1024x768.

Sound card configuration:

If you are using latest version of Linux (2.4 or later) and inside KDE/GNOME desktop click on Start->"System Settings"->Soundcard Detection.

For older versions of Linux follow the steps below:


bash$ su - root
bash# man sndconfig
bash# /usr/sbin/sndconfig

Then start X-window 'KDE desktop' with 'startx' command. Click on 'K Start->ControlCenter->SoundServer->General->Test Sound'. This should play the test sound. Then click on 'K Start->MultiMedia->SoundMixer->SoundVolumeSlider' and adjust the sound volume.

Network card configuration: If you are using latest version of Linux (2.4 or later) and inside KDE/GNOME desktop click on Start->"System Settings"->Network.

For older versions of Linux follow the steps below:

Configure Firewall and IP Masquerading : For Linux kernel version 2.4 and above, the firewall and IP Masquerading is implemented by NetFilter package. Hence in kernel config you should enable Netfilter and run the Firewall/IPMasq script. Download the scripts from Firewall-IPMasq scripts , main page of Netfilter is at http://netfilter.samba.org. Related materials at firewalling-matures and Netfilter-FAQ.

For kernel version below 2.4 you should install the firewall rpms from rpmfind.net or firewall.src.rpm.

Configuration of other devices: Refer to HOWTO docs relating to your devices at http://www.linuxdoc.org
