*** Warning: make dep is unnecessary now.


*** Warning: make dep is unnecessary now. That's what the build system said when I attempted to compile the 2.6.5 kernel for the first time. It's been nearly a year since I last installed a new kernel. I decided to wait till 2.6 has been tried out by other guinea pigs before deciding to become one myself.

The first encounter is the brand new make xconfig. This is fantastic, configuring the kernel before installation is no longer the tedius task that it used to be. Apparently the current system is

make xconfig


make modules_install

of course if you follow thes steps you still have to copy bzImage to your /boot folder and edit grub. (the instructions are for lilo)
