Automating Kernel Compilation

William from Argentina asked me to write kernel compilation howto. Actually it's already written on my website, but i will write it again here. This time, i will not list the detailed, but i just wanted to show you a script which was taken from Robby's work and i modified it a little bit to automate the kernel compilation process.

All you need is an extracted kernel in /usr/src and put the script in /usr/src directory. Run it as root user (don't use normal account, as it won't work) and make sure the right kernel version is already updated in the script. Please make sure you have read the instructions listed on the scripts before using it. Use it on your own risk. I'm not responsible for any damage or loss by using the script.

You can download the script on my Box account.
