Unhappy What happened to the Newbie Compile Guide?

Am i losing my bean or what?

I looked at the newbie compiling guide a couple of days ago and read through it fairly closely. I go back and click on the sticky again last night, and it is not the same thread. The last posting on the thread under that link is almost 15 months old. I am sure this is not the same thread that was there a couple of days ago. It is older and the first main post is not the same.

Any ideas?

Perhaps you read the 2.6 kernel thread by mistake?

I think the newbie thread has been locked for a while...

Or could it be that you were looking at the latest posts rather than the earliest? -- J.W.

thanks everyone,

it was the guide that was in the general forum that you posted the link to that i had read. I thought for sure the slack forum guides were the only ones i had looked at but apparently not... it was really late

Anyway, thanks again for point me in the right direction. Now if i can follow those instructions and compile my first kernel correctly!
