slow linux recompile


i've made an upgrade to kernel 2.6.5 -> 2.6.7(slackware 9.1)

i've done also a lot of tuning to kernel, so i've compiled it many times.

it seems to stay about the same amount of time to build the image and modules... shouldn't be suposed to _update_ the output from sources? only those(sources) who are new or modified should be compiled, right?

so, it's normal?

thanks for answers!

If you've changed options in the kernel, it has to rebuild everything together, so unless your wiping out a lot of stuff you don't need from a previous kernel build, your not going to see much change.

That'll also depend on what you do when you compile. If you "make clean" after, you're back at square one.
