Re: Compiling a kernel without making a .deb package.

I tried this a few days ago, but I hadn't read the makefile to know what
mrproper was doing and I lost my old config file which I had renamed,
IIRC, as .config_OLD or .config_org :(
So now if I use mrproper, I *always* save my .config to some other
directory, in my case in a tmp in a user's home.

Apologies for the inconvenience, but this is to reduce spam.)
