smaller compiled kernel, will it copy?
Well, i just recompiled a 2.6.9-1 kernel om my quest for a leaner/quicker FC2. Stripped out all the sound/usb/scsi stuff and after bootup 'top' now shows 23Mb of mem being used, as opposed to the 53Mb from the stock release. Nifty! File size is down a little also. Still have some stuff in there i can remove also, but its things im not sure about yet.
Anyway, is it possible to backup this kernel image, (or compile one on another machine) and then copy it to the machine i want to use it on? I dont think i want all the gtk2, ncurses, xorg, qt stuff that im forced to install to compile a kernel.
How would i sort the modules out, if i copied the kernel over?
