User:Alexmat/Manual CK Kernel Install

From ArchWiki

Grab the kernel from (example uses 2.6.13, substitute the current stock release):

cd /usr/src
tar jxf linux-2.6.13.tar.bz2
mv linux-2.6.13 linux-2.6.13-ck5

Grab the relevant patch.

Apply patches to kernel:

cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.13-ck5
bzcat /usr/src/patch-2.6.13-ck5.bz2 | patch -p1

(OPTIONAL) Copy over existing kernel config:

cp /proc/config.gz .
gunzip config.gz
mv config.gz .config

Build the kernel (where X is your number of CPUs + 1):

make menuconfig
make -jX && make modules_install

Install new kernel:

cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.13-ck5
cp /boot/

Update bootloader:

vi /boot/grub/menu.lst
