Since I should document this somewhere, here's the procedure
for building the Slackware kernel package. I do not patch the official
kernel sources, but it's not exactly a virgin either.
Version specific notes (if any):
For a 2.6.x kernel (much easier):
Untar Linus' source in /usr/src.
Make all files owned by root:root with reasonable perms.
Install a suitable .config, or use make menuconfig, etc.
An example would be to use one of the config files here:
# cat config-generic-3.2.29 > /usr/src/linux-3.2.29/.config
Then run the build programs:
That's it! You now have a clean Slackware-configured Linux source
