 question about compiling new kernel
Author: nathan 
Date:   19-02-01 23:47

do i have to have the source code ofr my entire system in order to compile another kernel. basically my problem is that i want to know if my sound card is supported by freebsd before i blow away my linux partition. but in order to find out i have to re-compile a new kernel. can i just re-compile the kerenl that came on CD without cvsuping a new one? and if so what is the package name that has that source code in it? thanks
