"Obtaining And Compiling A 2.6.29 Kernel First, we must download the kernel source, unpack it and copy the actual kernel configuration to the source directory. This reduces the required changes to the kernel configuration to a minimum. Of course, we can change more in the configuration if we want. We also have to install some packages which are required to succesfully compile the kernel.

cd /usr/src
wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.29.tar.bz2 tar -xvjf linux-2.6.29.tar.bz2
cp /boot/config-`uname -r` /usr/src/linux-2.6.29/.config

"Then we must configure the new kernel:

cd linux-2.6.29
make menuconfig "
