  • - Linux kernel
The Linux kernel useful only to rebuild in some cases. For example, to enable new capabilities not available in the previous version of the kernel. Or to create a specific system for LifeCD when used bezmetallny Assembly.
The build process has long been simplified and automated. Before Assembly it is imperative to know the version of the current kernel. Open "Terminal" ("Menu" - "Applications" - "Accessories" - "Terminal") and enter the command:
uname –a
In return you will get a line that say about the current version of Linux. Next, go to the website and select the most fresh and suitable for you -.
There are Stable and Development version. Always take the most recent archive, because it contains a fix all previous problems and glitches. In Development removes small problems, and Stable over a large – scale release.
First we need to configure the kernel. Go to console root access and type the command:
sudo make defaultconfig
Then select the appropriate settings for you. If something is unclear, you can always use the HELP button in the lower right corner of the screen. Do not turn in - functions that have the flag Experimental or Deprecated. This could bring the system out of steady state. Enable these settings only if you know what you are doing.
After finishing setting from a simple user in a terminal enter the command:
make bzImage

make modules
"Make bzImage" allows you to compile the kernel and "make modules" - modules to assemble. Then root access email:
make modules_install

make install
This will begin the installation of the kernel. After it reboot and you can use the new version of your system.
