Question Does anyone have a good step by step on compiling a Kernel?


Im going to try to compile the 2.6 kernel, get rid of what I dont need and see if I can add in the ACPI support and get it working. Anyone have a good how-to?

Is it pretty much the same procedure for Mandrake?

Kernel compiling is kernel compiling no matter which distro for linux.

Hope this helps

Well - I did this with 2.6.0-test4 with no probs under Mandrake 9.1 with LILO.

Get hold of the kernel source.

Download either to /usr/src or home directory you can always extract to a directory in /home then use the mv command to move the newly extracted directory to /usr/src change into that directory with cd - once youve cd'd into the extracted directory (or symlink to extracted directory) then do

make xconfig
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install

cp System.map /boot/System.map-2.6.0-test4

cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage-2.6.0-test4

kedit /etc/lilo.conf

Copy the whole normal entry for your distro then change 2 things the image path and the label name save it

/sbin/lilo

Dr Ozz's guide is worth checking out for more info.

(remember with 2.6........... you dont need to make dep anymore)

If you use bzlilo instead of bzimage it will make entries in lilo for you. But you still have to move the files to /boot.
