Sorry -- this is basic but I can't find documentation/instructions.
I want to do some development module kernel testing. There's plenty of info on how to build a kernel and how to use grub to choose between different kernels but what if they are the same version, in this case 2.6.24?
I want to build and test an experimental 2.6.24 (for ubuntu 8.04.2) without affecting the existing production setup. It's for hardware work so it can't be done in a virtual machine.
How do you keep the necessary experimental 2.6.24 files, including headers etc., separate from from the production versions?
Where is the documentation/instructions?
