Subject: kernel compile HOWTO
Is there a howto for compiling linux kernel for alpha? (Compaq
alphaserver ds 10)
Under Debian it is even easier. Install the "kernel-package"
compiling a kernel a breeze (ignore the problems that I am
having ... I have
made this work previously). The only problem that I can see is that it
works best with debian packages of the kernel source. If there is a
make it work with standard sources, can someone clue me up?
It seems to work equally well with arbitrary source trees, following
the instructions included with the package - basically, quoting
For the Brave and the impatient:
Phase ONE: Getting and configuring the kernel
1% cd <kernel source tree>
2% make config # or make menuconfig or make xconfig and configure
Phase TWO: Create a portable kernel image .deb file
3% make-kpkg clean
4% $Get_Root make-kpkg --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image
(Get_Root is whatever you need to become root -- fakeroot or
sudo are examples that come to mind).
Phase THREE: Install the kernel image on one or more machines
5# dpkg -i ../kernel-image-X.XXX_1.0_<arch>.deb
6# shutdown -r now # If and only if LILO worked or you have a means of
# booting the new kernel. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
e.g. in my case, I do (as root):
make-kpkg --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image
dpkg -i ...etc...
I install the kernel image manually on Alpha.
