I am running ubuntu server 13.10

bash #lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 13.10
Release:        13.10
Codename:       saucy

I could see in  /boot/config-3.11.0-12-generic  file  that

1) Is there any way to get around ?

2) if only kernel recompilation is the option, is it same as desktop
ubuntu kernel compilation  ?  this wiki
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/BuildYourOwnKernel  talks about some.


+ bool "Disable promiscuous /dev/mem"
+ default y
