Re: a kernel compilation question
Is there any reason not to combine the two methods, ie download the
latest 2.4 from kernel.org (which I want), but use "make-kpkg clean"
and "make-kpkg kernel_image" (which I like)?
I do not have an answer to your question. But may I ask why you are
trying to compile
1) latest 2.4 kernel instead of the 2.6 series? IMHO, if you do not have
a valid reason, you should compile the 2.6 kernel.
2) Why get the source from kernel.org? Instead you can use the debian
kernel (apt-cache search kernel-source) which is more trusted by the
Debian community? The Debian's kernel will have debian specific patches
patched into it. That is good enough reason to avoid compiling kernels
from kernel.org .
