Recently, I wanted to add i2c I/O expander to my build.
menuconfig, there's ---
kernel_menuconfig, there's ---
Here I faced an issue. Which one should be selected ?
If it works with just
kmod package then why is there a config in
kernel_menuconfig gives you access to the full kconfig of the kernel, kind of bypassing the normal OpenWrt kconfig (meaning only
n make sense there, while
m gets built, it won't end up anywhere). If you don't need your module to be included statically into vmlinuz (as in necessary for booting), it's usually better to use the normal OpenWrt kconfig, instead of
kernel_menuconfig, that way the normal packaging gets created with its dependency information.
