Many commonly used programs such as 11 the X Window system and syslog use these sockets even if your 12 machine is not connected to any network. Unless you are working on 13 an embedded system or something similar, you therefore definitely 14 want to say Y here. 15 16 To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be 17 called unix. Note that several important services won't work 18 correctly if you say M here and then neglect to load the module. 19 20 Say Y unless you know what you are doing. 21 22 config UNIX_DIAG 23 tristate "UNIX: socket monitoring interface" 24 depends on UNIX 25 default n 26 ---help--- 27 Support for UNIX socket monitoring interface used by the ss tool. 28 If unsure, say Y.
