I have just got hotpatch 2, which has ZENWorks materials based on I would very much like get Novell's .config that they used
to build this kernel. In fact it would be very helpful if the .config were
routinely made available. Otherwise it is very difficult for us to try to
make small modifications to the kernel that are needed for our own
environments. We have to try to figure out from scratch all the
modifications necessary to get the public versions of the kernel working
like the Novell version. I have always found this impossible.

For the last couple of versions this has been made available, e.g. see
and look at the part about "Obtaining the Linux Source Code Tree".

Can someone please ask the developers where I can get this?
