However, hibernate requires a little further tweaking it does work, but the system doesn’t fully shutdown after the memory image is written to disk. To create devices manually use:.

To enable the webcam on the CF-AX3 this will work for many modern machines, as many webcams are UVC devicesgentpo the following options:.

On Gentoo, this will end up invoking Python 3. Due to the limited available man power and the broad scope of the UVC specification, the Linux UVC project will concentrate the development efforts on video input devices, especially webcams.

This section of the tutorial has no precise analogue in the Gentoo manual, although elements of it are reflected in Chapter 7. If you plan to buy this gentooo make sure it matches the product name. While this bloat is mostly harmless, there are a few negative side effects of having features you don’t need, for example:.

A big initramfs does not mean tentoo the kernel of the booted system will consume a large amount of system memory, for example since the initramfs is discarded by the initial startup script, shortly after the main root filesystem is brought live. This include a V4L2 kernel device driver and patches for user-space tools. Note Of course, it’s entirely fine to repeat this buildkernel –menuconfig process a few times, so if there are other features you need to enable, feel free to do so now.


Nevertheless, it is convenient and ‘one-shot’ in nature, so, if you do wish to try out localmodconfig for yourself, proceed as follows.

In the above example, you can see that a reasonable start has been made, with the kernel size having fallen from its original MiB to 94MiB. You may also find it useful to refer to the “Gentoo Kernel Configuration Guide” on the wiki.
