Hot and Fun Linux Kernel Compilation

Posted 04-28-2015 at 02:25 PM by jheengut

Hot Question
The hot question on everybodies lips, why should I compile the kernel?

The answer is not simple since it varies to the situation, sometimes a missing drivers, a new sexy hardware that only the latest kernel version supports or testing purposes.

My Answer

Mine had been to find the smallest one that can my machine following each new version from git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git. Any good distro out there...
