In some cases you might want to compile your own kernel that suits your needs better than the standard kernel that comes with your distribution. I will describe how to do this on a Debian like machine , ( ubuntu family) in only 10 easy step!
1) To compile a kernel in “the Debian way”, you need some packages like fakeroot, and a few others which are probably already installed
2) go in the right directory in accordig to FSSTND standard (Filesystem standard)
yuo can go in other dirctory but isn’t the best chois
3) download the latest kernel version from www.kernel.org
please check on kernel.org the latest version in this tutorial i use 3.0.3
4) extract it in a sub folder and enter in the folder
5) clear all
the command “make clean” will remove all the object and kernel object files (ending in .o and .ko) and a few other things; “make mrproper” will do everything “make clean” does, plus remove your config file, the dependency files, and everything else that make config creates.
and finally the command “make-kpkg clean” Cleans the kernel source directory of all files created by tar get build, and runs a make distclean.
6) will use the settings of the kernel in use (the .config) and pass the new
7) Loads the settings you just saved
is one of tools,that can configure the Linux kernel source, a necessary early step needed to compile the source code. make menuconfig, with a convenient menu user-interface, allows the user to choose the features of the Linux kernel (and other options) that will be compiled. In this case we use it to load the “old configuration”
follow the screenshot
enter in this menu
confirm the load
save and exit
8 ) buid
Note that to be useful the name of the package must conform to the Debian naming convention: linux-image-< version >-< abi >-< flavor >.this command can take a lot of time !!
9 ) if make instruction is finisch whit success can install all [ image – header -firmware ]
10 ) reboot the system to load new kernel
after system starting can check the new version whit
