View Full Version : [ubuntu] Kernel recompilation issues

May 10th, 2009, 05:59 PM

I'm a computer engineer student, I've been told te recompile the latest distribution of Ubuntu to make uname -a command display my name instead of Ubuntu's version.

I've done my share of reading, but to be honest, I'm quite lost because this is my first Linux experience :confused:, could you please recommend me a good tutorial for dummies? is there any grafical tool to do it?

What's the easiest way to do it?

I'm running a clean install of ubuntu 9.04 on a VMWARE virtual machine.

Thank you very much for your help.
