    Best bet would be to just use the Ubuntu kernel sources, and change your config from there IMHO.
    The issue is that Ubuntu heavily patches their kernel source and to do the equivalent would require a lot of manual edits on your part (creating and modifying makefiles, grabbing all the sources, etc...)

    If you'd rather not use the Ubuntu kernel sources to roll your own custom kernel, you could 1)patch the kernel with any desired upstream patches and 2) compile required modules without their own patches outside of the kernel tree (much easier than incorporation).

    Anyone have any other thoughts on the issue?

    cheers,

    That's exactly what I want to do—start with Ubuntu's configuration and just take out the stuff I don't need, while making sure the things I really want (wireless & sound drivers) are included. I had looked through the list of kernel sources before, but for some reason "linux-source" didn't jump out at me as the one to grab. Now I've got that package installed, and next time I've got a couple hours to spare I'll go through it and try to make it my own.

    Timeout. If you followed my guide correctly and ran 'make oldconfig' as it said, the configuration should automatically be the same as the Ubuntu kernel's.

    EDIT: I don't think the Ubuntu patches are included in the mainstream kernel, however. You can try installing linux-source (that's the one with the patches), and then follow my guide from there.

    Right. Your guide (which is very nice, as it gives me a package for easy maintenance and deals with the GRUB menu) gives us the unmodified Linux kernel, what we'd call the "vanilla" kernel over in Gentoo Land. I was looking for a label like "Ubuntu-sources" and didn't find it the first time around. Now I've got the right package, and it only remains to go through and turn off the 1,001 things I know I don't need, and turn on the 2 or 3 that I am missing.

    It's always easier to find things when you know what you're looking for!

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Hi all. Wow this thread is long, didn't find by searching so sorry if this is asked already.
    Im just wondering why this guide does not use src group to do compiling. I always thought that would be the way to do it instead of doing everything as super user. Ideally you would do downloading, unpacking, patching, configuring, compiling, and cleaning as a user in src group, and finally just sudo install compiled packages. Is there a reason why it is not done like that?

    Arrow Re: Howto: Installing and using KernelCheck

    KernelCheck 1.0.5 has been released!

    Changelog (Key features only):
    • Added safe halt support (signal trapping) in both stages
    • Added network test (thanks to walkerk)
    • Added support for background processes
    • KernelCheck will not freeze anymore EXCEPT on security updates
    • Added security update ability


    The 'Check for Updates' button in KernelCheck 1.0.4 (or patched 1.0.3r1) should automatically detect this upgrade. This has been tested with version 1.0.4.

    Download at SF.net, or the download page.

    Post questions, comments, etc. here.

    I have not heard of this method of approach. Does this work? Last I checked Ubuntu did not create a group named src.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    I used this method and I ended up with two deb files like it said. However, they were not called linux...etc they started with the word "kernel-image" and "kernel-headers".

    It installed fine, but whenever I install anything, it says "E: Cannot find packaged Linux-headers-2.6.22.7"

    It looks like it's looking for the wrong deb file. Mine is kernel... and its looking for linux...

    Help! What can I do???
