CONFIG_NETDEVICES: Network device support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_NETDEVICES has multiple definitions:

Network device support found in drivers/net/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_NETDEVICES:

Help text

You can say N here if you don't intend to connect your Linux box to any other computer at all.

You'll have to say Y if your computer contains a network card that you want to use under Linux. If you are going to run SLIP or PPP over telephone line or null modem cable you need say Y here. Connecting two machines with parallel ports using PLIP needs this, as well as AX.25/KISS for sending Internet traffic over amateur radio links.

See also "The Linux Network Administrator's Guide" by Olaf Kirch and Terry Dawson. Available at http://www.tldp.org/guides.html.

If unsure, say Y.

You can say N here if you don't intend to connect your Linux box to any other computer at all or if all your connections will be over a telephone line with a modem either via UUCP (UUCP is a protocol to forward mail and news between unix hosts over telephone lines; read the UUCP-HOWTO, available from http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto) or dialing up a shell account or a BBS, even using term (term is a program which gives you almost full Internet connectivity if you have a regular dial up shell account on some Internet connected Unix computer. Read http://www.bart.nl/~patrickr/term-howto/Term-HOWTO.html).

You'll have to say Y if your computer contains a network card that you want to use under Linux (make sure you know its name because you will be asked for it and read the Ethernet-HOWTO (especially if you plan to use more than one network card under Linux)) or if you want to use SLIP (Serial Line Internet Protocol is the protocol used to send Internet traffic over telephone lines or null modem cables) or CSLIP (compressed SLIP) or PPP (Point to Point Protocol, a better and newer replacement for SLIP) or PLIP (Parallel Line Internet Protocol is mainly used to create a mini network by connecting the parallel ports of two local machines) or AX.25/KISS (protocol for sending Internet traffic over amateur radio links).

Make sure to read the NET-3-HOWTO. Eventually, you will have to read Olaf Kirch's excellent and free book "Network Administrator's Guide", to be found in http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#guide. If unsure, say Y.
