== Easy Local Kernel Configuration ==
 
  
I'm not brave enough to edit the main article, but according to the [http://kernelnewbies.org/Linux_2_6_32#head-11f54cdac41ad6150ef817fd68597554d9d05a5f 2.6.32 release notes], the build targets "localmodconfig" and "localyesconfig" have been added to ease in creating custom kernels. The difference, as I understand it between the first and second target is that the latter removes unused modules so that init scripts and modules are unneeded.
 
 
Perhaps someone saavy enough could edit this article accordingly?

== Verifying signature ==
 
Kernel.org has updated their info, I believe we can simply link to their instructions "avoiding duplication of effort"

:Are you talking about the signature verification part only or about the whole section? Anyway yes, linking to upstream docs is preferable when they're clear and well-maintained like in this case, provided there's no need for Arch-specific adaptations of course. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 08:02, 8 January 2012 (EST)
 
::Just the signature verification part.  The whole "web of trust" signing concept is new to me as is *gpg*.  It appears that the security issue at kernel.org has been resolved, and the page at http://kernel.org/signature.html has been updated to reflect this.  I have only time to comment occasionally, but not to edit right now...

:::No problem, at least now the update is reported here, thanks ;) -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 08:39, 12 January 2012 (EST)
