Re: How do I recompile the kernel?



Hi,

I have attached a mail by Ben Gertzfield below. The original question was
about kernel modules but the 'kernel-package' handles all the things
related to building a custom kernel, not only the modules.

This is the way I built my kernel and it worked very well. The
'kernel-package' can be found from the misc section.  After you have
made your new custom kernel you can install it with 'dpkg -i 
/usr/src/your_new_kernel.deb'.

  If you use the 'kernel-package' Debian package, things will work
  exactly this way.

  You just run make menuconfig/config/xconfig/whatever, and then run:

  make-kpkg --revision whatever.1.0 kernel_image

  (you can replace 'whatever' with whatever ;)

  and voila! you'll have a new .deb package of your kernel and modules
  and other assorted goodies in /usr/src. :)
