Xubuntu - custom kernel


I have been googling information on building a custom kernel for my Xubuntu installation ... and I see a number of docs on how to do this the "Ubuntu way".

I normally use Gentoo ... and I normally do this:

download the kernel sources
create kernel config
make
make modules_install
make install

Why is there a special Ubuntu method ... or are these just scripts that perform the same actions as I do with Gentoo ??

I think there is a special Ubuntu/Debian method: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelCustomBuild

It’s not so much something special required for compiling and using custom kernels as it is recommended by the Debian people that you install kernels as “.deb” files and use fakeroot when compiling.

You can probably do it the normal way and be fine…
