Kernel Compile how not to do it !!!! [FXx]

EDIT I would like to say kernel compile problem was my fault.... I should have moved it then compiled 2.6.5-3 (gcc3.4) I will in future use /usr/src (improve my CLI skills) lol

I am sorry for posting but this old boy gets in muddle sometimes & I like to think out loud.
After several mugs of tea & reading posts I now have kernel 2.6.5-3 Xfee4.4 & nvidia working again (well for a couple of hours till 2.6.6 !!!)

 pacman -Af 

Many thanks again for all your help

Mr Green :oops:

Re: Kernel Compile how not to do it !!!! [FXx]

Re: Kernel Compile how not to do it !!!! [FXx]

Re: Kernel Compile how not to do it !!!! [FXx]

I think it's safe to force it.

Or do a makepkg -ic

Re: Kernel Compile how not to do it !!!! [FXx]

So how do you go about modifying the kernel using abs? 
For example, I want to remove IPv6 support.

I can do it no problem manually, but when I try to use makepkg, I get an md5sum error (I assume) if I try and modify the config file.

If I don't modify the config file it compiles and makes the package just fine.

So... is this the recommended method?

Copy the folder to somewhere else.
Modify the config file by hand (is there a way to use xconfig or menuconfig somehow?).
Run md5sum on the new config file and add the result to PKGBUILD.
Run makepkg
Run pacman -A <package-name>

Or am I missing something?   :?

http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ker … with%20ABS

2/3 of participants in an informal vote feel that /usr/src is the better way to go though...
