Hey guys,

I am interested in learning more about my kernel and maybe modifying it for performance. I see alot of talk about kernel compilation and not to sure what that is. following this guide


it seems simple, but following this one from ubuntu forums


just seems so much more complex.

Anyone point me in the right direction?

fyi: running Ubuntu 12.04 desktop and have a Ubuntu Server 10.04 that if possible I would like to check out the source as well
