I am looking at

Para 9.6.1 deals with compiling one's own kernel. It recommends,
"Hereafter, we'll assume your kernel source will be located in
/usr/local/src and that your kernel version is 2.2.22. As root, create a
directory under /usr/local/src and change the owner of that directory to
your normal non-root account. As your normal non-root account, change
your directory to where you want to unpack the kernel sources (cd
/usr/local/src), extract the kernel sources (tar xIf
/usr/src/kernel-source-2.2.22.tar.bz2), change your directory to it (cd

In contrast, the FHS at http://www.pathname.com/fhs/2.2/fhs-4.1.html
says, "/usr is the second major section of the filesystem. /usr is
shareable, read-only data. That means that /usr should be shareable
between various FHS-compliant hosts and must not be written to. Any
information that is host-specific or varies with time is stored

A better location for building kernels and debian packages is somewhere
in the $HOME structure. Advising users to build software in a filesystem
that may be mounted read-only and which 'must not bw written to" is

I'm closing these bugs because install-doc was the documentation for the
boot-floppies, which have reached end of life.

Current installation documentation is in the debian-installer-manual
package. If you think that your documentation issue is still not
adequately covered in the sarge installer manual, please reopen your bug
report and reassign it to debian-installer-manual.
