dmassage uses the information in a BSD system's dmesg to gather information about the system's hardware devices and present this information in a tree-like hierarchy. This information can then be used to build a more efficient kernel that only contains support for devices that are actually present. It can also be used to disable probes for absent devices, thus speeding up the boot process.
Kernin is an easy-to-follow, menu-driven script to help with the installation of a Linux kernel. This includes everything from extracting the kernel from its tarball through automatically changing the LILO configuration. Kernin is mainly aimed at inexperienced users that have no prior knowledge of kernel installation. Kernin can also help experienced Linux users save time when installing a kernel. Note that kernin is only compatible with LILO at the moment.
