Re: kernel manual seems to make no mention of "defconfig"

Rifenbark, Scott M <scott.m.rifenbark@...>

This manual has not been merged with yocto-docs/master yet so the book is not available as an "In Progess" book just yet.

AFAICT, there is no mention of a possible "defconfig"
entry anywhere
in the current yocto kernel manual.

You won't find it there because it isn't specific to the kern-tools,
what you see there is a small wrapper on top of the kernel.bbclass
defconfig handling, with the same end result. So standard
yocto/oe-core docs apply here.

I also forgot to mention that Darren did cover defconfigs in the
yocto kernel docs that were put together for the 1.4 release (I
think they were posted here), so there's better / additional
coverage upcoming!
ah, i will go back and check those out, thanks. just trying to
catch up on several days of not reading the list.
They are in the process of being edited by our tech writer as well as
being converted from ascii to docbook. You can see the current state of
them here:

See Section 2.2.2 and the sections that follow.

Keep in mind these are being actively worked on, so there are some rough
edges we're working through still.
