    How long has it taken u to compile a custom kernel

    How long does it take u to compile a custom kernel if u compiled 1 or more - please reply with what u choose and the following info:

    Chip is + Ghz + Generaton Name & Memory u have for example mine is (oh and please guestimate if u can to the nearest hour):

    0-1hours - about

    a little less

    On an INTEL P4 2.66ghz NO HT on a 512mb System

    ..............................................

    I would say itta be about 45-50m total. Full CPU 100% and can still use the system easily - a bit slower but not that much, also Why I asked was that I am curious becauee a friend on the forums said it takes him 3hrs with a newer P4 system with HT enabled compared to my oldie NON HT Intel P4...

    Re: How long has it taken u to compile a custom kernel

    Last I tried it was about 30 minutes.
    But I think it also depends on how many modules you include.

    My system is Athlon 64 3200+ socket 939.
    I use 2-2-2-6 RAM which helps a little.

    While I've never compiled a kernel myself. I do know that the compilation of the kernel depends on the speed of the cpu and how many modules you include.

    Re: How long has it taken u to compile a custom kernel

    The only OS I've ever compiled my kernel on is Gentoo. It's been a while since I've compiled it since I'm currently not using Gentoo, but I think it was under 5 minutes.

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
    1 GB RAM

    I did it using this guide:
    http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=1&chap=7

    I also used Gentoo's LiveCD, so it could have been faster if I was using the minimal install.
