After spending months trying to figure out why the i915 module wouldnt load on boot without mkinitrd being run and then only requiring me call it distinctly.. i finally figured out how make localyesconfig works by running "grep -R --include=Makefile '\bMODULENAME\.o\b" Alls well now. i915 compiled completely in the kernel without having to load the module or use some kernel options. ALL 4 PENGUINS SHOW UP FOR THE ENTIRE HIGH RES BOOT SEQUENCE!!
