  at the risk of a bit of self-promotion, i wrote an online course for
beginners to kernel programming, the first part of which is free and
walks you through how to configure, build and reboot a new kernel:


i avoid all the nonsense involving packages and packaging, and just go
with cloning the git tree and manually installing the end result.
this works for me just fine on ubuntu, so i assume it should be just
as easy under debian.
