    OK I compiled my first kernel using Falko's guide, it was OK.

    Now I have to recompile my existing kernel (2.6.14) and I'm wandering whitch commands to execute after 'make menuconfig', changing device drivers etc and exiting 'Linux Kernel Configuration'?
    I use Sarge.
    Thanks

    It's same kernel version, I just want to change sound configuration (new sound adapter).
    Do I need to start with 'fakeroot....' after changing configuration?

    You have to start with
    Code:
    make clean
    and then
    Code:
    make menuconfig

    Yes I know that but I'm not sure after that and changing configuration.
    Should I run:

    make-kpkg clean
    fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image

    dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.11.7_custom.1.x_i386.deb

    or somethin else?

    Code:
    make-kpkg clean
    fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=custom.1.1 kernel_image
    cd ../
    dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.11.7_custom.1.1_i386.deb
    So you increase the revision number. It's not necessary, but makes sense. :)
