"Introduction

"git

"I’ll be using git to get the latest kernel version. This is my favorite way to get the sources and it is in my opinion the fastest way to make changes later on when you want to update your own kernel to the latest version.

"I suggest adding my Launchpad repository to your system. The repository holds the latest version of git and is usually updated within a day of a new release of git, follow the instructions on the page Git Packages for Ubuntu to add my repository.

"Arch

"I am compiling the i386 version, if you want to compile for amd64 you need replace i386 for amd64 throughout this article.

"Flavor

"I choose the name core2 as the flavor name as for my personal use I’ll build a kernel for a Core2 processor. Besides the change of processor type in the configuration I also select support for 64GB as my laptop has 4GB, which is the main reason I started compiling my own kernels. I have some other changes but that’s beyond this article."
