Custom kernel image on custom slack build using CUSS


Hi. I'm building my custom Slackware CD using Cooking Up Some Slack (CUSS) and I would like to boot by default the 2.6.16.22 kernel... which is easy to do using Pat's kernel config and kernel image, but I would like to recompile that kernel under my own needs, make the image and use it at a boot image like bare.i is, or test.s ! Does anyone know how to do that ? Cause I'm a little confused by that .i, .s suffix and all those folders with configs in it, etc. Thanks.

bare.i = bzImage = vmlinuz

It's all the same thing. Just compile the kernel you want and use it.

regards,

**edit**
sorry I was in a hurry. You can compile the kernel like normal, then copy your bzImage you just compiled, over the bare.i (IDE) or the test.s (SCSI). Howver It would probably be better to just create your own named kernel and just tell the isolinux.cfg to point to the kernel you made. The nameing scheme is just used to identify the uniqly compiled kernel, and you wouldn't want to confuse your custom kernel with a default one.
