Missing 'make modules' command

The article mentions 'make module_install' without explicitly calling for 'make modules' - this will result in a lot of `cp` errors. Rdahlgren (talk) 05:46, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Only if you don't invoke the default make target, or otherwise modified the makefile. See make help. Maybe we could note that this article infers "vanilla" sources, per instructions. If you want to add a section for patching, and how this may modify the instructions, go for it. T1nk3r3r (talk) 06:44, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Missing 'make bzImage' command

This step is also required, otherwise there will be no bzImage to copy Rdahlgren (talk) 06:05, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Not if you follow instructions to the letter. See previous reply. T1nk3r3r (talk) 06:46, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
