I have been provided with a vendor supplied minimal linux installation. From an answer to a previous question I discovered that it is possible to build a kernel with or without module support. I have a CANBUS device that I need to attach which comes with drivers in the form of .ko files. I would like to be able to install these with the provided install scripts, but firstly I need to know if my kernel was built with module support - is it possible for me to detect this from the command line??
When I run
lsmod it returns nothing so I know that there are no .ko files there at the moment - but doest this mean that the kernel won't allow me to install a .ko file ?
