Lightbulb Where can I change kernel source dir?


Anybody knows where can I change the kernel source dir? (usr/src/2.4.20/kernel....)

Thatīs meant, I would like to have my Kernel source dir in CD-R in order to use for module and kernel compilation.

Can I do this?
What do "make" when is called? Does it make any files in anywhere?

If it makes any file in /usr/src/2..4.20/kernel/....Iīm
in wrong way...

Can anybody solve my doubt?

you can't have your source on your CD since it needs to write into the source tree. You can have it pretty much anywhere you want where you can write to but it's easiest to have it under /linux/src.
