"Ubuntu 10.10 was released in October and I have been writing articles on "How to compile a kernel for Ubuntu …" for a few releases and there is no exception for Ubuntu 10.10.

"The Ubuntu kernel developers have decided to change things up yet again for the Ubuntu 10.10 kernel, I guess it will change every Ubuntu release.


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. There is a version available for Ubuntu 10.10 as well.

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