'make dep' doubt
I tried to compile the Linux kernel 'latest version' and was able to compile it successfully. However, I have a doubt regarding the steps I followed.
It is regarding 'make dep'. I found that there is no need to 'make dep' for building 2.6 series kernel.
My doubt is why it is not required. How the dependencies are managed in 2.6 series. Whether the kernel build system had been updated to do this with out 'make dep'?
In particular, I would like to know how 'make dep' had been eliminated in 2.6 series.
