Hi,

What are the pros and cons of building a stripped down kernel and loading a=
ll=20
the missing parts via modules (such that you end up with the same=20
functionality as generic kernel) vs having a kernel with all the modules bu=
ilt=20
in?=20

Also, is there anyway to detect if there are hardware without drivers (such=
 as=20
a sound card without any snd_ loaded) and to detect the type of device (e.g=
=2E=20
network, usb, sound, graphics)?

Lastly, is there any way to determine what 'modules' a kernel is build with?

Regards,

David
