it's been years since I compiled a kernel. I need to know what informatin I should gather for the 13.37 kernel 2.6.
You dont need to do that, the make menuconfig
script does that for you...
wget [your kernel from www.kernel.org]
tar -xjvf [ file]
cd [folder where it all resides]
(do some tweaks, mostly you dont need to tweak much)
sudo make install
reboot into the new kernel
Have losta coffee around during the make all, it could (will) take some time...
