Question why untill now we still can't use "make install" to install kernel?


I'm in the phase of converting from RH to slack!. I ran a howto at linuxmafia.org / linuxpackages.net that says in slackware we are safe to use "make install"!!! That's great.....but later when I tried it, the "make install" put my kernel image at / . .........

You have to edit the Makefile to tell it where to save the image. Check out this tutorial for Slack: kernel compile

It got me through many successful runs

instead of the "make install", I copy the arch/i386/boot/bzImage and System.map to the /boot folder, (with a different name).
Put a symlink to the correct System.map, and update your file locations in your boot-loader (for example /etc/lilo.conf) grub and lilo allow you to add multiple kernel options to the menu.

You'll have a little more flexibility this way.
