I edited Kernels/Arch_Build_System#Getting the Ingredients to use asp instead of abs due to the depreciation of the tool outlined here camohiddendj (talk) 10:47, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

I've clarified a number of steps, including some questions here in talk. Hope it helps. Eduncan911 (talk) 01:47, 8 May 2015 (UTC)


  • I am doing this now and 2 dependencies have shown up that are not documented, bc and xmlto. Or maybe these used to be installed with base-devel but no longer are.

At the time of this writing, bc, xmlto, and other required packages, are mentioned at PKGBUILD::makedepends. Kernel/Arch Build System#Compiling suggests to use makepkg -s, and states
The -s parameter will download any additional dependencies used by recent kernels such as xml and docs.

  • If somebody want to keep stock kernel beside custom one, shouldn't be the "provides" array uncommented, and changed to

provides=('kernel26' 'linux') ? --4javier 05:27, 10 January 2012 (EST)

should I also uncomment these parts in package_linux-headers() and not only in package_linux()? --Onny 11:08, 8 March 2012 (EST)
  • this page does not mention that every changed .config-file has a new md5sum which should be added into the PKGBUILD --Onny 11:24, 8 March 2012 (EST)


What directory are these commands supposed to be run from? Dbbolton (talk) 06:59, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
