I need the .config for the new 4.19.50-v7 kernel just released

Tue Jul 09, 2019 6:29 am

I have a need to recover the .config that bullt the kernel that apt just installed last afternoon, but cannot find it stored on the rebooted machine. This is the .config that just gave me an 11x improvement in video speed.

What package should I download to get THAT .config?

sudo modprobe configs
zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
