13772Re: [linux-dell-laptops] stupid n00b question on kernel compiles
- Jul 2, 2002what I do is:
- make mrproper
- make [menu/x]config
- make dep
- make bzImage
- [make and install the modules if needed]
- cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /a_new_file_in_root
- add the new image to the lilo file (/etc/lilo.conf)
(don't remove your working image)
- lilo (will commit your lilo change)
keeping your old image allows you to very quickly
reboot a clean system if the new image goes wrong. You
can always remove your old image later.
the location of your lilo.conf file may vary with your
distro (I'm on slackware).
