I am trying to compile the ubuntu kernel following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/CompileAnd it works but I have some problems:
1) How to reconfigure the config with make menuconfig or make xconfig etc. when the config files are split ? I try this:
Then it says it is not clean and I have to do make mrproper Doing that however removes the debian directory!! Modifying config.generic by hand and then building works, but it would be nice to have an interface not to miss any dependencies.
2) After making a package linux-image-debug-2.6.24-21-generic_2.6.24-21.43_i386.deb
Will it overwrite the generic kernel i already have? and how can i prevent this ?
And why does it say debug ?
3) Website also say that i should do the same to compile modules as compiling the kernel..so I do:
But how can this know about the modified config.generic that were used to build the kernel ? I thought about copying it to linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-2.6.24/debian/config/i386 But i386 is not a directory any more !???
