How To Compile A Kernel - The CentOS Way

How To Compile A Kernel - The CentOS Way

Each distribution has some specific tools to build a custom kernel from the sources. This article is about compiling a kernel on CentOS systems. It describes how to build a custom kernel using the latest unmodified kernel sources from www.kernel.org (vanilla kernel) so that you are independent from the kernels supplied by your distribution. It also shows how to patch the kernel sources if you need features that are not in there.

Step-By-Step Configuration of NAT with iptables

Step-By-Step Configuration of NAT with iptables

This tutorial shows how to set up network-address-translation (NAT) on a Linux system with iptables rules so that the system can act as a gateway and provide internet access to multiple hosts on a local network using a single public IP address. This is achieved by rewriting the source and/or destination addresses of IP packets as they pass through the NAT system.

How To Compile A Kernel - The Ubuntu Way

Each distribution has some specific tools to build a custom kernel from the sources. This article is about compiling a kernel on Ubuntu systems. It describes how to build a custom kernel using the latest unmodified kernel sources from www.kernel.org (vanilla kernel) so that you are independent from the kernels supplied by your distribution. It also shows how to patch the kernel sources if you need features that are not in there.

Basic Iptables - Debian/RedHat

Updated: December 2nd, 2005

This is a fairly basic intro to the usage of Netfilter Iptables. How-To was written on a Debian Sarge 3.1 box, though commands and syntax should work with any linux distro.

In some cases you might want to compile your own kernel that suits your needs better than the standard kernel that comes with your distribution. I will describe how to do this on a Debian Woody machine (a description for Debian Sarge can be found here!). Please note that this tutorial is for kernel 2.6 only! A tutorial for kernel 2.4 can be found here.
