ive never compiled a kernel, never seen the need to. but to install a 2.6 kernel on debian is to just apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.x and kernel-source-2.6.x. you may also need the kernel-headers packages as well. reboot and voila! running 2.6. check the package lists for the exact names of the kernels and which ones you need (amd64, smp, 686).

hope that helps

If you want to configure it yourself check the sticky thread in this forum It's all about updating the kernel.

apt-get or aptitude "kernel-tree-2.6.xx". It will include kernel source + patches. After installing above packages, follow these instructions:

http://anarka.org/linux/debian_kernel.html

If you have never configured a kernel, I suggest googling around so you wont make neededless mistakes. Also make sure you read all help sections while configuring the kernel.

I completely agree with jsmarshall85, is the simplest way to go around it, IMO.

Cheers,

But that won't get you the latest kernel available. At least for testing, Debian is often 3-4 versions behind. And compiling the kernel as pristine sources isn't that hard...might even be fun as it makes you learn what kind of hardware you have. Also, you reduce the kernel's and the modules size as you can skip what you don't need.
