To be honest, I only found out about oldconfig a few months ago... ;-) And I need to get time to learn the Debian way. ;-)The Debian way is really a piece of cake...patching too? How about Netfilter Patch-O-Matic?
From `man make-kpkg': --added-patches foo --added_patches fooThe argument should be a comma separated list of additional patches to the kernel sources. This automatically sets the
patch_the_kernel configuration option to YES. [SNIP] In the above, ALL_PATCH_DIR defaults to a subdirectory of /usr/src/kernel-patches/.
Step 1: cp /boot/config-<kernel version> .config && make oldconfig Step 2 (optional): make menuconfig (to change and tweak options) Step 3: fakeroot make-kpkg cleanStep 4: fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version=<add something> --revision=<today's date> kernel_image kenel_headersInstall the resulting .deb with dpkg and viola...yeah, I know I sound like an idiot. ;-)
The most difficult aspect is getting past the initial psychological fear. My first 6 months using Debian I was petrified of trying to recompile a new kernel. After I finally took the plunge, I wondered why I had been so scared. -Roberto
