I need to disable some parts in ACPI, but it is simply not present in kernel (downloaded as a tar from net)?

I can see the option in kernel 2.6.34-12 (default on OpenSuse 11.3), but not in the other one.

What's the point that I am missing?

P.S. Screen shots are from kernel

The ACPI block depends on PCI being enabled.

Symbol: ACPI [=y]
  Depends on: !IA64_HP_SIM && (IA64 || X86 [=y]) && PCI [=y]

If you disabled PCI (or didn't enable it), or selected a different architecture, you won't see any options related to ACPI.

  • BTW, where did you find this written? Depends on: !IA64_HP_SIM && (IA64 || X86 [=y]) && PCI [=y] I can't see it in my screenshots. Jun 1, 2012 at 6:07

    It's the help text for the selector... that is hidden if you don't have PCI enabled.

  • Mat, thanks but that's not helpful on the part of kernel. :( Jun 1, 2012 at 6:19
  • I think it might be accessible in 3.x kernels, but can't test right now. Kconfig is a bit quirky.
