    You are right! I just tried it out on Trusty and it does work on Trusty!

    Sorry, but I don't have an NVIDIA Graphics Card, perhaps someone else can answer that question.

    Also, I didn't realize that:
    "Modern (GNU) tar recognizes the format by itself! One command (in the Ubu implementation) works with any supported compression method." [source]
    EXAMPLE:

    Code:
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ tar xf linux-3.12-rc6.tar.xz

    Might as well copy n' paste this 'Gnotes' update for posterity...

    # You may need to install some additional packages/libraries, depending on your distro, to do this (noted below).
    
    # Kill any unnecessary background processes, such as Conky, audio/video player, temp monitor, email client, et cetera.
    
    # Download .xz tar from this pool: https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/ker...sting/?C=S;O=D => (to whichever path you wish).
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ cd ~/Downloads/Kernels  # (example)
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ tar xf linux-3.12-rc6.tar.xz  # (extract the files, preserving the tree - example)
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ cd linux-3.12-rc6  # (example)
    
    # Copy & paste a working .config file from /usr/src or /boot (I prefer /boot) to this folder, before running the following make commands.
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ make-kpkg clean
    
    # You may need to install 'make-kpkg' (sudo apt-get install kernel-package) to perform the above, and repeat.
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ make localmodconfig
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ make menuconfig  # (make changes, if necessary, and/or save and exit)
    
    # If you get menuconfig errors, you may need to install ncurses, libncurses5-dev, libncursesw5-dev, et cetera, and repeat.
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ time fakeroot make-kpkg -j3 --initrd --append-to-version=-vindsl-p4ee-rev.02 kernel-image kernel-headers
    
    # Lastly, you may need to install fakeroot also, to perform the above, and repeat.
    
    # Install the resultant .deb files, as you normally would.  I use: 
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~/Downloads/Kernels/linux-3.12-rc6$ cd ..  # (example)
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~/Downloads/Kernels$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb  # (example)
    
    # Reboot.
    
    # That's it.  Have fun!

    Re: 3.12.rc6...

    VinDSL, took me quite awhile to find "a working .config file" when i first tried paul and your instructions for compiling! i finally found one by looking in:

    Code:
     /lib/modules/<pick a working kernel version>/build/.config
    lol, would have been a lot easier if i had just looked in /boot.

    now i know where you guys were getting them from, thanks to your "gnotes update":

    # Copy & paste a working .config file from /usr/src or /boot (I prefer /boot) to this folder, before running the following make commands.
    as usual, a big thanks!

    Welcome.

    Every Linux distro has its own way of doing things, but you can always find a working config in /boot.




    All you have to do is:

    • look for the file with 'config' in the name
    • copy n' paste it to the folder where you're compiling the kernel
    • rename it to '.config' [dot config]


    Sometimes there are several of these 'config' files in /boot so you need to be careful to choose the right one.
