Get an usable minimal non-modules/non-initrd .config file for my new
AMD64-based machine took me three days, I understand you :-/
The most frustrating part for me is that the options dependencies are not in a
clear linear-tree layout. I.e., selecting/unselecting some option from the
last menus can activate/deactive some option from the already visited first
menus, thus forcing to review at lest two times all entries to can know what
is actually selected.
