what are the minimal requirements for a custom kernel to run arch linux?
hmm ... not a full list, but i think you should have at least:
devpts (for the 2.6.x)
... but best way have a look at the stock-kernel configuation in the ABS
The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.
Just use the .config-file from arch-linux, and do a circle:
1. Deselect Options you think you don't need
2. Compile Kernel
3. Install Kernel
4. Boot into Kernel
5. If everything works good, go back to one and deselect more options. If not, you deselected one option you needed.
I'll try it out
