The linux kernel

Frankly I don't usually bother to compile the kernel myself. Yes I could probably gain a little extra performance but 10% is not gonna change much for me. Usually stability is a greater issue. However now and then something comes up that requires me to compile the kernel and then I end up reading documentation and searching the internet as to how to compile the kernel - which is not difficult, but rather straightforward.

The commands

First we want to configure the kernel and maybe pathching the kernel too. Then we want to compile and install it.

Get the kernel from http://kernel.org.
