Re: Backports not building configured drivers

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Thanks everyone for the replies.  The setting I was missing in the
kernel was that I need to have PCI enabled.  I'm not sure why the
backports menuconfig said PCI [=y], since it was not enabled in the
kernel, but once I enabled it backports built the wifi driver

Thanks again for the help!
