I'm compiling my own Linux kernel. Not done this for many years.

@lohang well, at least it compiled ok and solved some but not all of my hardware issues.

@mcnalu That's good to hear. I too would like to attempt doing this. Not in the near future though, by the look of it.

@lohang it's not too difficult but a bit of reading first is essential. Slackware is probably the easiest distro for kernel compilation because the kernel is not patched much, if at all.
